Here at Art & Music Emporium we encourage people of all ages to follow their serious musical and artistic dreams.  Whether you realize it or not, you have the basic skills you need to play a musical instrument, you just need to learn how to hone and focus them.

We expect all students to practice thoroughly, work hard, and try their very best at all times.  Our goal is to incorporate Smart Music in all student relationships, thereby including assignments, feedback, and on-going assessment between lessons!

Students can expect:

  • Professional, encouraging, individualized, focused lessons from a certified instructor with over 10 years of experience.

  • Technology-based instruction, that include options of Smart Music and SKYPE.

  • To gain musically enriching tips and techniques gained through our instructors' formal training and personal performance experiences.

  • Respectful, timely lessons and advice given with undivided attention.

We offer a variety of supplies and books to get you started.  You can even purchase or rent your instrument and buy accessories from our store, although none of this is ever required in order to take lessons with us.

Our individualized lessons cost $25 per half hour.

Small group lessons are also available at $15 per half hour. Please call if you are interested in this option.

We offer lessons for musicians of all levels from beginning to advanced.  We can teach you how to read music or how to jazz improvise.  We can help you work through a method book or help you to perfect your solo for the upcoming concert you are performing in.  We will work on whatever techniques and selections you would like.  We offer lessons for all concert band and orchestra instruments.  We specialize in Low Brass Lessons, however - tuba, trombone, and euphonium/baritone!

Three convenient studios:  Slate Belt (Between the Pocono Mountains & Lehigh Valley) in Northampton County Pennsylvania, Happy Valley of Centre County Pennsylvania, and in the comfort of your home via SKYPE Lesson!
