Guitar Lessons

Guitar Lessons

Our one-on-one guitar lessons take students through popular and modern techniques to teaching tab, chords and harmony, songwriting and composition as well as music production. Teachers use modern songs and creative techniques to help a young beginner or any struggling learner. Teachers will adjust a modern arrangement and accompany their students so that they will be inspired and and interested.



Drum lessons teach students the know-how of what it takes to be an accomplished drummer. Drum lessons target rhythm as the foundation of any good band. We also work on coordination and technique so that our students can advance through many rudiments and polyrhythms.
It is our goal to have every drummer try our band program and learn other styles of music while performing. These opportunities are exciting for our students, and help them see the benefit to practicing as well as connecting with other musicians.



The piano is a great jump off point for the study of all other instruments. Here we teach students to learn to read notes in the Treble and Bass Clefs while also learning improvisation and songwriting. The piano is physically easy to play right out the gate, making it much quicker than any other instrument to create sound. This is great for those who need immediate satisfaction and reinforces desire to play more often. The piano or keyboard is also great for understanding how music works, visually the piano gives everyone patterns that help students see music in a linear way. Meaning kids and adults will see relationships and patterns much easier than any other instrument which is why college music students must have 2 years of piano under their belt before graduation. The most important part of piano is the use of both hands, which develops the left-right brain communication.



Voice lessons allow students to choose their own songs and our instructors will guide them based on their unique gifts and talents. We strongly encourage students to branch out to different styles of music including, rock, pop and classical, all while learning fundamentals of technique. We find it important that during voice lessons students should learn to breathe correctly, create a clear tone, project and understand melody and phrasing.



We offer Violin lessons for students ages 3 years to adult. Though we specialize in teaching beginner violin lessons our instructors move students through intermediate and advanced levels quickly. We offer both traditional Fiddle and Suzuki style instruction. Whether you want to play “Devil went down to Georgia” or a Bach Sonata, we will help you reach your goals.

Southlake's Creative Soul of Music is a fantastic place for kids of all ages to learn more about their passion. My daughter always looks forward to her lessons every week. Wether it's singing a challenging song, or learning a new chords on the piano, there is always something my daughter looks forward to! Creative Soul of Music is a laid back and fun atmosphere with an eclectic vibe... not what you see at most music schools.

It's such a fun, happy place for kids and adults. Great decor that encourages creativity and exploration!! Maybe if I had a fun place like this to go for piano lessons as a child I would have stuck with it!?!
My little boy loves the mommy and me class where he is encouraged to explore rhythm, movement, singing playing with instruments and interaction with the teacher and others. The teachers are engaging and passionate about music and kids and they truly make the learning process fun!!

My son has had private drum lessons for several years and loves them. The facility is awesome and the instructors are so helpful and patient. We have also done an adult "Band Date" and had a blast.

My son and I started taking a mommy and me music class at Creative Soul when he was about 6 months old. He LOVED it! There are fun, interactive songs and toys and instruments that the kids are encouraged to play with. The teachers are well trained and very interactive with the kids. Definitely one of my son's favorite activities!

My son Alex started there at about age 11. They really had an impact on him. He still plays. Right now he's into street BMX but I hear the guitar from his room a lot.i can't say enough about how great Creative Soul is.
