FREE Trial Lesson
We realize that you have a choice between manny different music schools in the Santa Monica and West Los Angeles areas. However, we are confident you will love taking music lessons at the Santa Monica Academy of Music and would like to offer you a FREE trial lesson. To schedule your FREE 30-minute trial lesson, please call or email and mention this offer:
We want every student that enrolls in lessons to succeed and love music. As such, please note that there are age requirements to enroll in private lessons. We usually require violin students to be at least 4-5 years old; piano students to be 5-6 years old; guitar and voice students to be 7-8 years old. All students are different, though.
If you are interested in enrolling your young child in piano lessons it might be appropriate to first schedule a free 15-20 minute initial evaluation. During this time the Director will give your child a 10 minute "mini-lesson" to gauge if they have the necessary attention span and fine motor control. This is also a great opportunity for parents to ask any questions about scheduling, practice expectations, teaching philosophy, and allows us to place your child with the best teacher for your child's personality and learning style.
