Get to Know Us

Asheville Music School is a nonprofit community school for anyone who wishes to study music. We’ve been making music since 1996, and now have over 400 students with 35 instructors teaching music lessons and classes every week. We are currently enrolling students from beginner to advanced skill levels for private lessons and/or group classes. Our students range from age four to young adult and those well into retirement. We teach all styles and levels and have at least three optional recitals a year in our own in-house performance space! In 2012 we started our first summer camp series, which we will be continuing in 2013 and in the years to come.

Our instructors are brought on board not only because they are gifted performers, but because they have demonstrated quality teaching and superior knowledge in music. These are professional teachers who want to teach.

Daytime music lessons are conveniently offered for homeschoolers and adults. No matter what you want to play, from Bach to bagpipes, we have instructors who can teach you how to play like the pros. We offer private and small group instruction, convenient hours and the best instructors in the area. Our school also has wireless internet, so if you are waiting in the lobby, you can stay connected.

Instruments include piano, guitar, violin, cello, bass, voice, saxophone, flute, trumpet, drums, percussion, and much more! Get to know our lessons and instructors by clicking on the Lessons and Programs link.
