Music Lessons

Guitar, bass, ukulele, and drum lessons in Sylvania and Toledo

What to expect from your first lesson

What to bring:

  • Your instrument

  • A notebook

  • A tuner

  • Payment for the lesson

  • Guitar students: Mel Bay's Guitar Method Grade 1 Expanded Edition

  • Drum students: Roy Burns' Elementary Drum Method


We carry all recommended books in the store.


The lesson will begin with an evaluation of your basic knowledge about the instrument, so that I can gauge your skill level. Then we'll move on to basic instrument methodology and an introduction to reading music.

Learning an instrument can help you become more confident and reduce stress. Studies have even found that students who learn an instrument tend to do better on tests than non-musicians.

What a typical lesson looks like

We will spend the first part of the lesson reviewing book work and theory, and during the second part we will work on learning the music of your choice. I will also give you a few exercises out of the book to practice over the week. Students can view their practice material here.

The time we spend on each part of the lesson depends on the needs of each student.
