Welcome to Music Instruction Studio!
Since 2004 thousands students have taken music lessons at our 3 different locations, more than at any other studio in Hixson, East Brainerd and Cleveland TN. We started as a very small school but have grown to become one of the largest music schools in Chattanooga area.
We do not believe we are the best because we’re the biggest. Instead, we believe we’re the biggest because families think we are the best. Click here to see what our students and parents are saying.
As a parent we realize you have a choice between several different music schools. All studios are not the same.We constantly renovate and improve our facilities and provide ongoing training to our staff to ensure we are always providing our students and parents with the best experience possible.
Today, as in 2004, there are several different studios to choose from. We invite you to compare all of the features and options to see why our studio has been chosen more than any other music school. To view a studio comparison checklist Click Here

1. Individualized Music Instruction
Whether you have a young son who wants to try out music lessons for the first time, or are a high school student preparing for a music major in college, we personalize lessons to accomplish your dreams. This ensures that YOU get to choose what your goals are, and meet them in a way that works best for you.
2. Work on the music YOU enjoy!
We teach a wide range of musical styles, from classical to rock, sacred to modern pop music
3. Experienced instructors in piano, guitar, voice, drum, bass, violin and more
All of our teachers have either college degrees or extensive performance/teaching experience. We choose our instructors for their warm personalities. Our teachers work well with both children and adults, and are dedicated to helping you to achieve your goals. They are friendly, patient, and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level. Music is our passion, and we love sharing it with you. Our instructors will listen carefully to you and what you want to achieve, and then help you develop a plan to meet your goals. They work well with a wide array of youth and adult students with special abilities and challenges.
4. Fight boredom!
Music lessons are taught in an innovative and fun way to keep students learning and growing, whether you are a young child or an adult. We use various types of media to spark creativity and keep lessons interesting as you learn your instrument.
5. Learning to play an instrument can help with schoolwork skills
Patient, loving teachers work with students to develop good practice skills on their instruments that can also help boost grades in school. Learning to play an instrument has been shown to help develop spatial intelligence in children. Our students learn skills that help improve focus, listening, and communication.
6. Flexible, open lesson schedule
We offer a wide range of lesson times, which makes our music studio ideal for school kids, homeschoolers, and busy adults. You can choose from morning, lunchtime, afternoon, or evening lessons. We are open six days a week; weekdays as late as 8:00 pm, and Saturdays from 10:00 – 2:00pm.
7. Comfortable waiting/observation area
Parents and families are invited to come in and relax. You are always welcome to join your child for their lessons. Our lessons are taught in fully equipped music studios; you won’t be stuck in the back room of a music store! Or if you prefer, our comfortable lobby is furnished with comfortable chairs, powerful Wi-Fi, and books for children.
8. Free recitals
Student music recitals are held twice a year to encourage practice and performance techniques. These are designed as a community outreach, to share music with our community. Students are not required to perform, but many choose to. Parents never pay admission or any related fees for these recitals.
9. Learn foundational skills
We incorporate music theory, ear training, improvisation, and sight reading into your music lessons, right along with your new performance skills.
We are the only music schools in the Chattanooga and Cleveland areas that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder is our unique method of music education that you can only get here.
More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins. You can only get the Musical Ladder here. We also specialize in music lessons for adults.
Lessons are first come, first serve so contact us today to schedule your first lesson!
