At the Gig Center
, music students work together and individually under the guidance of our outstanding faculty. We provide an educational, fun, supportive environment for kids and adults to foster their creativity and develop their musical skills.

Our Content
We offer both private lessons and group sessions; students may do either, or both. Each group session has a musical theme, so students have an idea of what they’ll be playing. We determine song selection and create playable arrangements that address the musical strengths and interests of our students. We’ll change keys to accommodate our singers, and we welcome brass and woodwind players in addition to students of all standard rock-band instruments.

Striking a Balance
Our private lessons offer a traditional approach to vocal or instrumental study. For students who enroll in a group session, your lessons may include, compliment and expand upon your band's material. Within our group sessions, students are musically engaged for a high percentage of the time at each rehearsal. Downtime is limited to breaks needed for social interaction and sustaining levels of attention, energy, and enthusiasm.

Our Schedule
Each Gig Center group session runs for about 16-20 weeks, and culminates in a live performance at a local venue. Students meet weekly for a two-hour rehearsal (2.5 hours for adults). Sessions will tend to run approximately from September through January, and February through mid-June. Similarly, private lessons are also offered on a semester basis. We offer summer programs as well.

Our Facility
As of September 2019, we are thrilled to be in a new location, at 1572 Post Road East (the former location of "Kidville"). We have increased the size of our main rehearsal area, and we also have spacious private-lesson studios. We invite you to come have a look!
