We teach music lessons in Anoka and in Ramsey, MN. Ages beginner (age 4 to 6) to advanced. Barry has a unique teaching style that feels freer than traditional lessons using music books alone. The students choose music that they would like to learn, and in those songs, Barry teaches them music theory and technique when they don’t even realize it! This way, the students stay excited about music and advance way faster with him.
After students pass his competency test, they can be paired into a teacher-led Rock Band! In a Student Band, they learn The Three C’s: Cooperation, Confidence and Creativity. These all are advantageous transferable life-long skills. We offer about a half dozen live performances a year from Church Recitals to Christmas Carols to Parades and Live Venues where all of their friends and family can come and enjoy their student’s musical achievements! We pack the house and it is FUN! So, bring your camera and your Shout-Outs to your students!
