From Our Website

We have over 20 music teachers with either University training or professional performance experience. We are confident that we have the right teacher to meet your needs. Our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and dedicated to teaching you the style of music that you want to learn. Blackbird has a proven track record of offering quality music lessons year round. Our full time mission is teaching music lessons trusted by hundreds of families for over ten years. Instead of waiting in a music retail store showroom, our clients enjoy a comfortable parent's lounge with Wi-Fi access.

Whether you aspire to play Bach or Alicia Keys, Blackbird's dedicated piano instructors will help you become the pianist you want to be. Our faculty will introduce you to the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, and incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons. You do not need a piano at home to take lessons; a simple full-size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first six months. Watch this video to learn more about our piano lessons. Our piano instructors are warm and friendly, and get to know each student and parent on a personal level.

At the Blackbird School of Music, every state-of-the-art drum lesson room is equipped with electronic drum kits for our students. Our instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues and many other styles of drumming, and challenge every student with technical exercises specifically designed to improve their speed and comfort. Beginning students need only their drumsticks and a notebook, and all that's needed for practice at home is an inexpensive drum pad. Drummers are encouraged to bring in their favorite drum parts to learn.

If you've always wanted to hone your skills as a rock, pop, country, jazz, gospel or R&B singer, Blackbird has the voice teacher for you. Our voice faculty focuses primarily on popular music. Each week, students are led through physical exercises to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, enunciation and more. Each student set goals with their teacher, either to sound like their favorite recording artist, or to develop their own unique voice. Our voice instructors work with each student and parent on a personal level to craft a lesson plan that fits the student's individual needs and favorite type of music.
