Lesson Membership

At Boise Music Lessons, we’ve created a model that meets you where you are in order to maximize learning, musical growth, and, most of all: community.

Song Cycles are where we break down a popular tune and learn to play it together as a group.  There are parts for every instrument and ability level.  These three-week units are how you’ll learn and grow as a musician.  

Your Lesson Membership determines the number of touchpoints you have with us in each Song Cycle.  Each unit includes:

  • Personalized one-on-one lessons to develop and hone your instrumental foundations
  • Hootenannies (group lessons) to learn how to collaborate and play with friends. 

Best of all, you’ll build your song binder to have fun, sharable songs to play with your own friends and family!

In addition to learning through the studio songs, you’ll also be able to select your own songs, genres, and artists to explore at your one-on-one lessons!

Frequently Asked Questions

You pick your schedule!  We offer one-on-one lessons six days a week and Hootenannies (group lessons) three days a week so you have plenty of times to choose from.  You can view the weekly offerings and studio hours here.

Our studio is located on Vaughn Street — just off Latah between Rose Hill and Alpine.  We also offer all our classes via Zoom so you can meet us from the comfort of your own home!

The health of our musical community is our absolute priority.  We are closely monitoring current health guidelines and are adapting our teaching practices accordingly to keep our studio safe.  We will always offer online learning options for our members both near and far.  

In-person classes are conducted with spacing and masks.  One-on-one lessons are hosted in our “Open Air Studio” (take the virtual tour).  Group Hootenannies are held at local parks.

Our creative adaptations were featured nationally by Good Morning America, and locally by KTVB and the Boise Weekly.  

Lesson Memberships are open to adults, teens, and tweens (ages 9+).  

Younger kiddos (ages 5-8) are welcome to “tag-along” with a parent through a Tagalong Membership.

While we don’t offer voice-specific lessons, we do teach vocal accompaniment techniques for you to explore as you learn to play your instrument.  Additionally, we learn a singalong together every month at our Hootenannies so you can sing and play with the rest of the group.

Or saxophone lessons? Or the trumpet, recorder, flute, etc?

We wish we could teach all the things!  Right now we’re sticking to the instruments we know best, which are listed above under “Pick Your Instrument.”  If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please shoot us an email and we’ll do our best to recommend another great instructor.
