All Ages. All Styles. All Levels.

Music Lab Granite Bay

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. 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. 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 starting out and we will find an instructor that is perfect for you.

Our Facility

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.

The teachers are all very skilled and my son has learned so much over the year+ he’s been going. His instructor Stixx is fantastic! If you want to take drum lessons, I wouldn’t bother going anywhere else!!!”
