As part of our “service after the sale” philosophy, we offer high-quality, private lessons for guitar, violin, and ukulele. In addition to being outstanding players with years of performing experience, our teachers have a sound background in music and enjoy working with people of all ages, regardless of prior experience and musical background. Lessons are designed to meet the needs and musical goals of each student, and are, therefore, highly individualized. We teach a wide variety of musical styles. Regular lessons are private one-on-one sessions, usually 30 minutes in length, once a week. Other scheduling may be possible; check with your instructor. Arrangements for fees, payment, and scheduling are made directly with the instructor.
One of our goals at Tringas Music is that you enjoy your instrument and helping you learn to play it works toward that end.
All lessons are taught at our store on Creighton Road.
Please contact the instructor of the instrument you wish to play or call us here at Tringas:
