All Levels

We can teach students from beginner to pro and anything in between. Join us on your musical journey no matter what chapter you are at.

All Ages

We accept all ages but some students are a bit too young to start so we feel it is most effective to start 5 or older.

All Styles

We have a variety of instructors that specialize in many different styles of music. Let us know what you want to learn when you are staring out and we will find an instructor that is perfect for you.

Covid-19 Update and Announcement


 We are pleased to announce that we’ve received the green light government officials to re-open our GRANITE BAY, ROCKLIN, and EAST SACRAMENTO locations in a safe manner! Due to our small locations, we are fortunate enough to be a low-risk business during this season and we have resumed in-person lessons along with a few safety measures:


  1. Limiting the number of people in the facility by having parents wait for their students outside or in the parking lot instead of the lobby for the time being.
  2. Maintaining social distancing guidlines of at least 6 feet.
  3. Wiping down the rooms with Clorox/Lysol wipes after each lesson and will have a contactless hand sanitizer station for the students to use right before each lesson on their way to the room. Each room will be equipped with hand sanitizer as well.
  4. We will have each lesson room equipped with a temperature thermometer gun for the instructor to measure the student’s temperature in seconds. Per government guidelines, any students or instructors that have a temperature of 100.4 or higher will be sent home right away.
  5. We will have our instructors temporarily wear protective Music Lab facemasks. Students may wear facemasks as well if they choose to.

Helping You Achieve Your Dream

Music Lab has been raising the bar of music education since 2005. Our network of music schools consists of musicians and instructors that are passionate about bringing music education to a new level.  We provide private music lessons for drums, guitar, bass guitar, piano, violin, woodwinds, and brass instruments. We teach students of all levels, all ages, and all styles of music.  Our instructors are all unique individuals that have their own style of playing and teaching, but as a team, we stay very connected to offer consistent, proven, and new methods of learning and teaching. In addition to private music lessons, we are currently offering group lessons for certain instruments.

Voted BEST MUSIC INSTRUCTION 4 years in a row!

Our teaching rooms are designed to provide the best teaching and learning environment. Teaching is the most important part but if you can combine great teaching with a clean, acoustically sound, inspiring, motivating, and comfortable room you get even better results. Our rooms are equipped with all the essentials which gives the opportunity for the student and instructor to have their own instrument helping create a much smoother lesson flow, This also provides the ability for both to play together when the lesson calls for such an activity. In addition each room has a play back system combined with headphones allowing the students to learn and play along to their favorite songs alongside their instructor.

“You never know what positive things music will unlock in your life until you try it. Period. You just will never know, for some people music is their outlet. For some people it’s their social connection to other people. For some people it’s just something they do for fun, to relax, to calm down, to destress, to decompress. For some people it’s an art form, it’s a creative thing. For some people it’s a career. For some people it’s their way to revolutionize the world through their music. You can’t really tell someone ‘this is what music will do this for you’. There’s a list of things it could for you, but you’ll never know until you try.”
