Private Lessons

Music Lessons in Seattle – for kids and adults!

Students at Meter include complete beginners, adults building on childhood study, siblings who want to start a family band, high school students getting ready for a big audition, and budding singer-songwriters. We believe that the right atmosphere, the right teacher, and the right community are the recipe for success on a musical instrument. We want you to be delighted to arrive at lessons each week, and go home inspired to play more.

Private lessons are a fast and focused way to get started on an instrument, and allow you to set personalized goals for your playing. Your teacher will have time to work on fundamentals and also personalize your materials to fit your goals.
