Our Student First Mission

Since 1985 Greenwich Music has helped thousands of students begin or continue on their musical journey. We are the largest music school in our area, offering private lessons in more than 15 different instruments, as well as comprehensive vocal instruction. Our music teaching approach inspires musicianship by providing a strong foundation in the fundamental concepts of music instruction as new musicians learn to play their chosen instruments. This means that the student will be provided with the basic principles of music theory as they play songs that they enjoy, all while fostering a meaningful and fun relationship with music.

Our Teachers

Like all artistic endeavors, music education is an investment. We have always believed that the single most important aspect to learning music is the teacher. Don't be fooled by gimmicks or franchise programs that teach from a one-size-fits-all manual. Greenwich Music's teaching staff are carefully selected for both their credentials and versatile teaching styles, which allows them to work with a wide range of age groups and ability levels from the beginner to the most advanced students. We know you're busy and it can be difficult to find a reliable music teacher; that's why we go above and beyond to find the BEST music teachers in the area. We take the guess work out of the equation for you. Our teachers are university trained, and most are professional performers.

We know you'll find our teaching staff to be friendly and dedicated to teaching you the music that you want to learn. We are proud to be independently owned and operated, and strive to offer on-going support to our instructors to ensure we always provide our students and parents with the best possible music learning experience.

Our Customized Approach

Throughout the years of owning a music school we have found that music learners most benefit from a customized approach, which is why all of our lessons are private one-on-one sessions. Our music teachers will tailor a music education program that best meets the needs and musical interests of the individual student.

Greenwich Music also offers performance opportunities! In addition to offering student open mic/jam nights and student parties for both Halloween and a winter holiday celebration, students may also perform in our annual student concert showcase that takes place every spring. All performances are optional, and free of charge to our students, their families and friends.

The Benefits of Learning to Play Music

Music has been referred to as the universal language. Data shows that one of the many benefits of learning music at an early age is demonstrated in a child's enhanced ability to process language. Research points to increased neural growth and activity in children who participate in music education, and has even made a strong argument to linking music study to improved spatial-temporal skills in children. So while your child may benefit from music education in areas outside of music, we can't overstate how music serves to enrich and enliven our lives.

Consider the many benefits of becoming a Greenwich Music student, and find out why we are the number one choice for music lessons.

Customized Private lessons, with both in studio and virtual options.

Customized Lessons for Guitar, Piano, Drums, Voice, Bass, Violin, Cello Ukulele, and all band instruments in one location, or from the comfort of your own home if you choose to have virtual lessons.

We offer lesson programs designed to meet the individual needs and goals of each student. Unlike some franchise music schools, we do not teach from a one-size-fits-all manual. Our teachers are experienced in crafting lesson programs that will help each student succeed, and have fun while doing so.

Awesome teachers

We have the best teachers in the area, who we've handpicked so your student can have the right personality and the right teaching style that works for them. All of our teachers have teaching experience, a degree in music, or extensive performance experience, and most importantly, a fun, motivating personality that you're sure to love! No matter what your musical goals may be, we want to help you reach them! Our first priority is to inspire the student--and that's the best teaching method of all!

A proven track record of excellence.

We have a proven track record of offering quality guitar, voice, singing, piano and drum lessons in the Greenwich, CT area year round. Our full time mission is teaching music lessons, trusted by thousands of families for over 30 years.

A comfortable waiting room for parents.

Instead of waiting in a retail showroom, our clients enjoy a parent's lounge with comfortable chairs, free wifi, magazines, and water. We also provide large observation windows for every room so that you can watch your child's lesson while you wait. Or if you prefer, you can sit in on the lessons at anytime.

Fully stocked lesson rooms.

Our rooms are stocked with everything you need for lessons, including amplifiers, full drum kits, keyboards, pianos, and more.

Free recitals and performance opportunities.

Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing, and if they're progressing. A great way for a parent to see their child's progress is to have their child participate in a performance. Throughout the year Greenwich Music offers students several performance opportunities that include open mic jam nights and a spring student concert showcase. Parents never have to pay admission, or any related fees for performances.
