Foundations For Collaboration
We see music as a highlight of daily life, not a task to be mastered. It’s a path to connecting with family, friends, and community.
Our students build technical skills on their instrument of emphasis at their weekly lessons, then learn the foundations for collaboration to play and jam with other musicians at monthly group classes called Hootenannies.
Our students explore the basics of all things strings and percussion at their group “Hootenanny!” In fact, we feature a different instrument each month and learn its history and how to incorporate it into a jam session.
Our students love building connections between different instruments. A warm-up on the drum set prepares piano students for practicing their cross-body hand placement. Violin students delight in practicing their songs on the mandolin as they share the same tuning. And most everyone likes taking a break from their usual instrument to pick a banjo.
Sharing With Family And Friends
There is no right age to learn an instrument. If you’re enthusiastic, we want to teach you! We provide opportunities for multi-generational learning from toddlerhood through adulthood.
We guide students of all ages to develop a healthy, life-long relationship with music, and encourage our students become musical enthusiasts rather than single instrument prodigies.
We invite our students to play music in our integrated home studio to inspire them to play music in their own homes with family and friends. We’re located on the Boise Bench near the historic Boise Depot.
