Since 2003

Musika has been providing musical outreach programs to public, private, and charter schools. As the national leader in our field with over 1000 professional music educators, your school will gain access to an unrivaled variety of lessons and group classes which can be offered after, during, or before school, right in your school.

After School, During, & Before School Programs

Private One-on-One Lessons

After school is an opportune time to provide music programs for students, either as a supplement to a music curriculum already in place, or as a stand-alone program. 90% of parents expect schools to provide music education, but many schools are forced to cut funding to their music programs when their budgets get tight. Musika is your most cost-effective, most complete, and most flexible turn-key solution. In fact, it’s 100% FREE for schools. The fees to support the program are only charged to parents that enroll. Musika provides curriculum & instructional staff, as well as program support from our administrative office. After school music programs can be made available either as tuition-based classes, or as an integral part of the school’s program.

Piano

As one of the most versatile instruments, students can learn anything from basic folk songs to their favorite pop tunes. Schools will need to have a piano or keyboard available for lessons to take place on. Recommended Grades: K-12

piano

Guitar

Since many popular songs are made up of only a few chords, they can be easy even for beginning students to learn on guitar. Students will see quick progress while learning the fundamentals of music theory along the way.

Recommended Grades: 2-12

Voice

Lots of kids love to sing, but by providing individual, focused training students will improve their breath control, tone, and musicality. Individual vocal training can be rigorous, so we recommend younger voices start off in a group setting before transitioning to private coaching.

Recommended Grades: 5-12

Violin

Kids can start playing the violin very early, and it’s an instrument many people play for their whole life. Individual lessons can help students excel in orchestra programs that may be offered in High School and beyond.

Recommended Grades: K-12

Trumpet

Whether students want to learn to bugle or to play in an orchestra or band, private lessons are recommended when starting this bright brass instrument. Since brass instruments can be more difficult to produce sound from, we recommend students wait until they’re a bit older to start lessons.

Recommended Grades: 4-12

trumpet

Clarinet

The clarinet is a mellow single reed instrument that is equally at home in orchestral and jazz music. Many students find it easy to transition to other woodwind instruments later on, so beginning with private clarinet lessons can lay the groundwork for many opportunities in the future.

Recommended Grades: 4-12

Bass Guitar

Almost every song has a bass line no matter what genre it is, making the bass player an essential part of any band, orchestra, or ensemble. Due to its size students will need to wait a little longer to start lessons, but both electric and upright bass lessons are offered through Musika.

Recommended Grades: 3-12

Saxophone

Saxophone is great for students interested in jazz, but it’s also an important member of wind and marching bands! Whatever direction students want to take musically, a solid foundation in saxophone technique is the best place to start.

Recommended Grades: 4-12

Flute

This fun, light instrument is perfect for slightly older students who are interested in orchestral, wind band, or jazz music. Since it uses the same finger positions as the recorder, many students find it easy to transition to the flute although private lessons can help students navigate the tricky mouthpiece.

Recommended Grades: 4-12

Cello

Playing the cello can be a very rewarding experience for students, and private lessons provide the structure necessary to master the instrument. Since cellos are made in different sizes, younger students can start playing before they’re able to handle a full-sized instrument.

Recommended Grades: 1-12

cello

Drums

There’s a lot more to drumming than just keeping the beat! Individual lessons are a great way for young drummers to learn proper technique so that they can succeed in any area of percussion that interests them.

Recommended Grades: 2-12

drums

Trombone

The trombone, like the trumpet, can be difficult for younger children to play, but for students in late elementary school it’s a wonderful instrument to learn. The embouchure and slide positions can be challenging at first, so one-on-one attention will help students progress quickly.

Recommended Grades: 4-12

trombone
Trombone

Viola

Slightly bigger than a violin, with a deep and smoother tone, viola is a great choice for any student interested in a string instrument. An integral part of any orchestra, starting private lessons early will put students ahead when they join advanced ensembles.

Recommended Grades: 1-12

Group Classes

Group classes are a great way for students to be part of a group and stay motivated to continue practicing and improving. Group classes are ideal for beginners, but also work well for students who have had 1-2 years of study. Instrumental classes are arranged by instrument and skill level, and are kept small (5-10 students). Instrumental group classes are offered on: piano, guitar, violin, viola, cello, bass, saxophone, clarinet, flute, recorder, trumpet, and trombone. In addition, we offer a few special classes that combine instruments. All classes offered are listed below:

Choir offers students the opportunity to explore all different kinds of vocal music, while working together to create music. Children's choral arrangements are written with kid's voices in mind, so they can sing their favorite songs (and learn some new ones!) without placing strain on their voices by trying to emulate an adult sound.

Levels Offered: Early Elementary (Grades K-3) Late Elementary (Grades 4-6) Junior High (Grades 7-9) Senior High (Grades 10-12)

Participating in a small string orchestra gives students a chance to work on arrangements of pieces performed by professional musicians all over the world, as well as learn about their individual instrument's place in the harmonic structure of the ensemble. Musika's Orchestra program is limited to just strings (violin, viola, cello, double bass) so students can focus on fundamentals such as bowing techniques while making music as a group. Your Musika instructor can help determine how students should be divided into groups based on the student's past experience with their instrument.

Levels Offered: Beginning (Suggested Grades K-3) Advanced Beginning (Suggested Grades 4-6)

Intermediate (Suggested Grades 7-9) Advanced (Suggested Grades 10-12)

Wind instruments are often used in full orchestral pieces, but there are many great compositions written just for wind band that students will enjoy learning together. Musika's band program is limited to only wind instruments (flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, and trombone) so students can focus on fundamentals such as breath control while making music as a group. Your Musika instructor can help determine how students should be divided into groups based on the student's past experience with their instrument.

Levels Offered: Beginning (Suggested Grades 4-6) Intermediate (Suggested Grades 7-9) Advanced (Suggested Grades 10-12)

Unlike drum set or orchestral percussion, drumline requires students to form marching patterns while playing their instruments. Since this takes basic knowledge of snare drum and auxiliary percussion, drumline class is limited to students who already have some experience in drum rudiments and are ready to take their drumming to the next level.

Levels Offered: Beginning (Suggested Grades 5-8) Intermediate/Advanced (Suggested Grades 9-12)

While learning a specific instrument is the route many children want to take, others may not be sure which instrument is best for them just yet. Musika’s General Music class for young elementary children introduces students to all different sorts of musical instruments and genres. Students will learn some basic hand percussion, simple songs, and some of the foundations of music theory such as rhythm and pitch.

Levels Offered: Early Elementary (Grades K-1) Middle Elementary (Grades 2-3)

Most popular music that children listen to features the guitar and it's a great instrument to learn in a group. Kids will enjoy the sense of community that group classes create, but enrollment is kept low so that children can get individual attention if they are having difficulty with specific concepts. Beginning guitar classes will focus on proper tuning and technique as well as learning simple songs and chords. More advanced groups will focus on expanding their theoretical knowledge as they learn well known songs. Your Musika instructor can help determine how students should be divided into groups based on the student's past experience with their instrument.

Levels Offered: Beginning (Suggested Grades 1-3) Advanced Beginning (Suggested Grades 4-6)

Intermediate (Suggested Grades 7-9) Advanced (Suggested Grades 10-12)

As one of the most versatile instruments, piano is a great place for many kids to start musically, and learning in a group setting is inspiring for budding musicians. Due to the fact that each student will need an instrument, this option is only available if schools are able to provide keyboards for all students in the group or has space for students to store their own keyboards, as keyboards are difficult for students to transport on their own. Beginning groups will work on learning the notes of the piano as well as basic theory and reading music. More advanced groups will further their technique while learning pieces from various genres. Your Musika instructor can help determine how students should be divided into groups based on the student's past experience with their instrument.

Levels Offered: Beginning (Suggested Grades K-3) Advanced Beginning (Suggested Grades 4-6)

Intermediate (Suggested Grades 7-9) Advanced (Suggested Grades 10-12)

There are lots of things to learn about the recorder, and a wide variety of music written specifically for recorder ensembles! Students will begin on standard classroom recorders while they learn notes and melodies, but more advanced students will move on to different sized recorders to round out the ensemble and add different tones to the group. Many students find it easy to transition from recorder to other wind instruments, especially flute, so recorder ensemble is perfect for younger students who may not be ready to pickup a wood wind just yet. Your Musika instructor can help determine how students should be divided into groups based on the student's past experience with their instrument.

Levels Offered: Beginning (Suggested Grades 2-4) Advanced Beginning (Suggested Grades 5-6)

Intermediate (Suggested Grades 7-9) Advanced (Suggested Grades 10-12)

Most students learn instruments separately, but learning how to play in a band is a great group activity! Rock band classes consist of students playing a combination of Guitar, Bass, Keyboard, Drums, and Vocals. Students will work together to jam to their favorite songs as well as learn the basics of writing their own music and lyrics. Since this class requires students to play together in a group, previous experience with instruments is required. Your Musika instructor can help determine how students should be divided into groups based on the student's past experience with their instrument.

Levels Offered: Beginning (Suggested Grades 2-5) Intermediate (Suggested Grades 6-9) Advanced (Suggested Grades 10-12)

The violin is a great instrument for children to start lessons on at any age, and learning in a small group setting helps motivate students to practice and improve. Violin classes will also play arrangements of well-known pieces together, incorporating harmony. Beginning classes will focus on learning basic playing techniques and simple songs. More advanced students will work on more complex techniques such as vibrato and explore the vast array of violin repertoire. Music theory is taught at all levels depending on what the students are working on. Your Musika instructor can help determine how students should be divided into groups based on the student's past experience with their instrument.

Learning trumpet can be challenging, but it's definitely fun! Group classes keep students engaged and motivated to improve while allowing them to learn pieces that can be played together. Due to the fact that the trumpet takes considerable breath control and manipulation of the lips, we recommend that students do not begin learning trumpet until at least age 8 or 9. Beginning classes will focus on learning basic technique and simple songs. More advanced students will work on things such as playing in the higher registers while learning more difficult pieces. Music theory is taught at all levels depending on what the students are working on.

The flute is one of the oldest instruments in the world and the repertoire written for it is vast. The modern flute played in orchestras and bands is a great instrument to learn in a group setting as students are motivated to learn and can play pieces as a group. Due to the fact that the flute takes considerable breath control and the flutists hands need to be big enough to reach all the keys, we recommend that students do not begin learning flute until at least age 8 or 9. Beginning classes will focus on learning basic technique and simple songs. More advanced students will work on more advanced technique while learning more difficult pieces. Music theory is taught at all levels depending on what the students are working on.

It's a great instrument to learn in a group setting as students are motivated to learn and can play pieces as a group. Due to the fact that the clarinet takes considerable breath control, and a clarinetist’s hands need to be large enough to reach all the keys, we recommend that students do not begin learning clarinet until at least age 8 or 9. Beginning classes will focus on learning basic technique and simple songs. More advanced students will work on more advanced techniques such as double-tonguing while learning more difficult pieces. At a more advanced level students may also switch to different sizes of clarinet such as the bass clarinet. Music theory is taught at all levels depending on what the students are working on.

As one of the newest instruments invented, the saxophone has quickly built a large repertoire of music from concert band to jazz. It's a great instrument to learn in a group setting, as students are motivated to learn and can play pieces as a group. Due to the fact that the saxophone takes considerable breath control and a saxophonist’s hands need to be big enough to reach all the keys, we recommend that students do not begin learning saxophone until at least age 8 or 9. Beginning classes will focus on learning basic technique and simple songs. More advanced students will work on more advanced technique such as double-tonguing while learning more difficult pieces. There are many different sizes of saxophone and students can explore which they prefer. Music theory is taught at all levels depending on what the students are working on.

Learning trombone is fun on its own, but learning in a group can be even more fun.

There are many different types of percussion, but for any type of drumming, rudiments are necessary to learn. Group drumming classes will focus on various stick and hand drumming techniques using drum pads for practice. While other auxiliary percussion may be covered, the focus will be on techniques that can be used for drum set, snare drum, and hand drums. Reading rhythmic notation will also be covered.

Woodwind classes are perfect for schools with smaller enrollment but would like their students to get the experience of a group setting for learning their instruments. Since clarinet, flute, and saxophone share many similarities, learning them with students who are working on different instruments can be a very rewarding experience, especially since they can play arrangements written specifically for woodwinds. Beginning students will learn the fundamentals of their instruments while working on simple pieces. More advanced students will further their technical knowledge while learning more difficult pieces.
