Private Music Lessons
The owners of Anchorage Music & Dance Center have been teaching private and group music lessons for 30 years in Anchorage. Our professional staff teaches students skills that will allow them to make and enjoy music throughout their entire lives. We teach piano, guitar, bass, drums, voice, cello, violin, and viola lessons to students all around the Anchorage Alaska area.
Students can start taking private lessons as young as 6 years old. We have an "Open Registration" policy which means students can start lessons at any time of year or month. There's never a reason to wait to get started!
Lesson times are available Mon-Thurs 2:30pm-8:30pm; Friday: 2:30pm-7pm; & Sat 9am-4pm. Many families are able to schedule multiple children at the same time with different teachers. That saves mom & dad hours of driving each week!
We offer private music lessons for the following instruments Monday thru Saturday:
Our teachers use the innovative program, LessonMate to send our students video demonstrations and lesson information for students to review in between their regularly scheduled lesson times. If a student misses a lesson, their teacher will send them their lesson over the LessonMate system so the student doesn't miss out that week, and never falls behind. Anchorage Music & Dance Center gives LessonMate accounts for FREE to all our enrolled students!
We think the secret to success is to have fun while you are learning, and to have the opportunity to perform. We offer multiple recitals and performance opportunities throughout the year. We host them in our performance space, located on site. Our recitals are low pressure affairs where students feel comfortable sharing their talents with family and friends
Our teachers are professional musicians with performance & teaching experience. Most have, or are completing, music performance degrees or music education degrees. Our teachers know how to relate to each student to help them master skills that create results-- all while having fun making music! (See "Our Music Teacher" for details)
Immediate Assistance & Customer Service
It is important to choose a studio that can assist you with questions about schedules, recitals, etc., even if a teacher is busy with a student. As with our dance teachers, our music teachers are not bogged down with administrative duties. Their job is to teach and make sure your child is happy and learning new skills. We have an excellent office staff on hand during regular business hours and lesson times to help you with all your questions.
