Music Lessons - Mission


At Anchorage Music & Dance Center we believe learning to play an instrument promotes self-expression & builds self-confidence. Our music program is designed to insure a positive experience for every student. Our teachers identify how to teach each, individual student to insure they are learning in the way best suited to them whether they are enrolled in private or group lessons. 


We show students how to have fun with music while learning important skills and theory.  We know performing and playing music with other musicians helps students to grow musically & socially.  We have many opportunities for performances throughout the year: 3 Student Recitals; and informally, each month at our, “Music Club Centerstage” held on site at our studio. Recitals and Music Club are FREE to all our music students.

Private Music Lessons

We offer private music lessons for students as young as 5 years through adult for: Piano; Guitar; Drums; Voice; Violin, Viola, Cello & Electric Bass.

Group Music Lessons

We also offer dynamic, Group music classes for students of various ages. After 30 years of teaching private lessons & group classes, our owner, Vince Spezialy, now exclusively teaches “Multi-Level Group Lessons” for piano, guitar, drums & ukulele. Vince is passionate about this format and feels that students progress faster & continue to play longer when they learn in an environment where they receive both one-on-one time with the teacher, as well as participate in group activities.


We give ALL our students FREE accounts to LessonMate. This innovative program allows our teachers to send video demonstrations and lesson information for students and parents to review in one place, between their regularly scheduled lesson times. If a student misses a lesson their teacher will send them their lesson over the LessonMate program so the student doesn't miss out that week, and never falls behind.

Who we are

Anchorage Music & Dance Center is celebrating 25 years of private & group music instruction and 10 years of dance!


We are a unique school offering quality private & group music and dance classes at one convenient location. Multiple students from the same family can take private or group music lessons and dance classes on the same day. That means parents only have to drive to one location for everyone's lessons & classes. What a time saver for the entire family!


We work with most all homeschool & charter schools in the State of Alaska. We are a direct bill vendor which means we invoice the school, so there is no "out-of-pocket" expense for the family!

Our network of schools include: Family Partnership; Frontier Charter School; PAIDEIA; IDEA; Mat-Su Central; Twindly Bridge; Denali Peak, PACE, CyberLynx & Raven.
