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 music lessons. Our students range from age four to young adult and those well into retirement. We teach all styles and levels and have at least two optional recitals a year in our own in-house performance space. Daytime music lessons are conveniently offered for homeschoolers and adults. In 2012 we started our first summer camp series, wherein students learn to make music with one another in fun and supportive ensemble settings.

Once our students have some experience on their respective instruments, they have the ability to join one of our student performing ensembles in our Sound Education Outreach program. These ensembles perform outreach concerts to people in need at such places like the ABCCM Veteran’s Restoration Quarters, Chunn’s Cove Assisted Living Center, and more. They also perform concerts at venues such as The Orange Peel, and festivals such as Downtown After 5 and Barnaroo Music Festival.

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.

No matter what you want to play, from Bach to bebop to Bob Dylan, we have instructors who can teach you how to play like the pros. We offer private music lessons, 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.
