FAQ

Can I start a lesson if I dont own an instrument?

In order for lessons to start, you must have access to an instrument for the lessons, as well as for regular practice. We have relationships with trusted instrument providers in the Orange County area that can either rent or sell you an instrument. We can put you in touch with them at your request. They can help with proper fit and selection for age level, size, and level of quality.
