We are dedicated to being a refuge for any musician to come to in need of guidance, insight, networking and/or preparation.
We offer private and group music instruction in a variety of instruments and at all different skill levels, building a foundation for improvisation, sight-reading, theory and technique. The Music Asylum also offers classes tailored to the student's specific interests in the field of music such as performance, songwriting, music business and much more, helping students prepare themselves for a future in music as well as building his or her portfolio.
