Music lessons for all ages and backgrounds

Are you looking for a cool, safe place where music education is a joyful experience? Does the idea of exploring jazz, gospel, blues, improvisational and classical music with teaching artists who are real working musicians excite you? Maybe band and orchestra programs in a traditional school setting are not a good fit – or your interests may involve styles and instruments not available in those environments.

Students of all ages have been discovering exactly what they were looking for at our community music school on Selby Avenue for 25 years. Quite a few have become nationally recognized musicians. Thousands more have found their adult lives more fulfilling because of all they learned and experienced in their time here.

“I like coming here because you always learn something. Not only do you learn music, you learn about life.” – Matthew Cousins, a current jazz ensemble player learning saxophone and digital music production at Walker West. Read more testimonials.
