Products & Services

Guitar Lessons

Guitar Lessons

Our guitar teachers teach rock, blues, metal, country and classical guitar lessons on electric and acoustic guitars. Beginner guitar students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of guitar method books to accomplish this and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes.

Piano Lessons

Piano Lessons

Our piano teachers teach a variety of styles from classical to popular music. Whether you want to learn Bach or Alicia Keys, our teachers are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be. Our piano faculty will show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, but they will also incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons. You do not have to have a piano at home to take lessons. A simple full size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first 6-12 months. Our piano teachers have warm personalities and enjoy sharing their love for the piano with you.

Drum Lessons

Drum Lessons

Our drum instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues and many other styles. Drum language can be complex and our instructors will challenge any drummer with a wide variety of technical exercises designed to improve your speed and comfort. All drummers bring in their favorite drum parts to learn in their lessons and theory is encouraged. We offer drum sets that take up very little room, and use headphones if you're in the market for a beginner electronic drum set. Students use our drum set at their lessons and do not have to bring anything except their drum sticks and a notebook.

Voice Lessons

Voice Lessons

Our voice teachers primarily focus on popular, classical and Broadway music. If you have always wanted to be a better rock, pop, country, jazz, gospel, opera, Broadway or R&B singer, then we have the right voice teachers for you. Voice students spend time each week doing physical exercises to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, vibrato, tone production, enunciation and more. All voice students set goals with their teacher to work on sounding like their favorite recording artists, or if they prefer, to develop their own unique voice. We not only teach singers, but also local TV and radio personalities who want to enhance their speaking voices.

Customer Testimonials

My son has attended for almost 2 years. He loves it!!! He is currently at the summer camp and honestly this is the only camp he's done that he has to be the first one there because he loves it so much. He wakes up excited to go and eager to learn. He tells me about the songs they learned. This school truly helps him come out of his shell and he feels so comfortable there. Plus the teachers are awesome!!!

Matt is wonderful. He takes such pride in his school and the instruction the students receive. I am an adult taking lessons and he treats me like the adult I am. I feel his customized approach is very beneficial and I look forward to every lesson. His encouragement means the world to this older learner.

Awesome place!!! They are teaching my 4 year old a love for music and the piano.

Maestro Maines is a fine music instructor. He treats every student as an individual and challenges them to do their very best. His expertise spans several age ranges and he offers his students a mix of personalized instruction, rigor, and creativity. Our lessons include homework follow-ups and specific instructions on how to practice. Maestro also showed our family web-based tools for note reinforcement. We highly recommend this studio.

We have loved taking music lessons from Mr. Maines and enjoy his studio! It is so conveniently located and is a fun and safe place for the kids to go. His equipment is top notch and really gives the kids a lot of opportunities - esp with his state of the art recording software. The kids feel like rock stars!
Mr. Maines is awesome with the kids - fun, encouraging, instructional. He goes above and beyond! My boys love him.

My son goes here and has learned so much from taking guitar classes. His teacher has a lot of patience with the kids and encourages them in such a positive way. We are very happy we decided to try it out.

I'm a senior, just stating on guitar, Maestro is quick to adapt to what I want to learn, he's very patient knowledgeable and easy to work with, I enjoy my lesson time.

Maestro Maines is super patient with people. My granddaughter is learning to play the piano and she loves it. Shes only 5 years old.

I've been going to Tampa Music School for almost a year now. I have learned so much about working within a band. Matt has been very supportive of all members and has an obvious understanding of how each instrument within the band can be showcased and contribute to the overall sound. I'm very grateful I've found such a nice studio right in my community.

My son goes here and has learned so much from taking guitar classes. His teacher has a lot of patience with the kids and encourages them in such a positive way. We are very happy we decided to try it out.

We have been going to Tampa Music School for about 3 months now and my son loves it! They offer flexible hours, an experienced staff and several price options. What I love best is how they personalize the experience to benefit each child. They target the areas he needs to work on while letting him choose the songs he wants to learn. He also just finished a week of Music Bootcamp and had a blast! Maestro Matt was incredible with the kids and blew me away with how much they learned in one short week. Thanks for everything and keep up the amazing work!
