You can download your getting started with music lessons guide here. It’s completely free and packed full of expert advice to help you make the best decision for yourself or your child.
Not all music schools are created the same.
At Sage Music, we take a very different approach to music education where we focus on your goals to help you learn exactly the music that you want in a welcoming community.
All of our lessons are expertly taught with our trained music teachers using our science backed Arpeggio® lesson system, which guarantees a consistent experience, great customer service, and all the best learning strategies.
Plus there are plenty of opportunities to meet other students, perform in our open mics, recitals and other community events.
Our vision is simple. To help you or your child become the best person and musician that they can be.
It takes a lot of work and effort to do that, and our school is built around that vision.
– Focus on your dreams and goals. You tell us the destination and we’ll get you there.
Before your first lesson, we do a student onboarding session. We’ll set your goals so that your teacher can focus on what you want. We’ll also talk about your preferences so that we can customize the lessons around the things that are important to you.
Some students, for example, want to perform, and other students just want something to do as an escape from work. The point is, no two students are alike, and so we are going to treat you like the individual that you are and personalize our process around you.
Lastly, we’ll do a personality and learning assessment to help our teachers present information to you in exactly the right way for better learning. From here, your progress begins. And this is where our unique methods come in.
Such an incredible experience. Would highly recommend Sage Music to anyone – whether you are picking up an instrument for the first time, or just looking to improve your practice in a specific area, Sage Music really meets you where you’re at.Emily W. Google Reviews
We've got the most flexible scheduling policy around. You can reschedule any lesson with 24 hours advance notice through our app, for any reason or no reason at all.
*Phone calls and emails required 48 hours notice, because we might be closed. It's always 24 hours through the app, which is super convenient to self schedule.
It's more than the lessons for us. We want you to have a simply amazing experience. That includes our client service. We'll treat you well.
The instructors and support staff are incredible. Customer service is out of this world. Compassionate and genuinely interested in the students.Krista V. Google Reviews
To ensure that you get a consistent and quality experience, all of our lessons are taught with our unique, science-backed Arpeggio® lesson framework.
It’s an acronym for the 8 step process we use in each lesson that guarantees you'll get the best learning experience and great service in every lesson you take with us. We’d tell you more, but it’s all protected by trade secret...and that's why you can't get it anywhere else.
This framework, paired with our rigorous teacher training, is why our students see so much progress. They see so much that they stay enrolled 3 times longer than other schools because they learn more, have more fun, and play more of the music that they want.
The quality of our lessons is why our students range from beginners and hobbyists, to professional broadway performers, Saturday Night Live cast members, and even Emmy® award winners.

Our school founder has given more than 30 world premieres, is a published composer, and has conducted at major halls, including Carnegie, many times. Our teachers' resumes are just as impressive. If performing is your goal, we've got the experience to get you there.
Plus, our school is equipped with a concert stage, so you'll have many opportunities to perform. We regularly host recitals, open mics, and other chances to perform.
Not to mention our 100% success rate in helping our students prepare and win auditions.
– Our teachers are trained and supervised to help you learn best
We’ve got a great system, but we’ve also got great people. We take excellent musicians who are passionate teachers, and we train them in the best strategies for teaching and learning music.
Other music schools don’t invest in their teachers the same way. In fact, they mostly hire independent contractors who are not actually employees of the school. That means that they can’t supervise or train them, and can’t direct what will be done in the lessons or how it will be done.
On the other hand, we take care of our teachers. We hire them as employees. We invest in our teachers so that they can in turn invest in you. We provide them with competitive pay, retirement plans, and health benefits so that they can focus on teaching you.
Our teachers are also well supervised, so that when you study at Sage Music you not only get a great teacher, but you also get an entire school behind you to help you reach your goals.
Amazing teachers! they are patient and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!Rick Franco Google Reviews
We don't want your visit to our school to feel like the doctor's office. Enjoy our great room as you wait for your lesson, or for your child.
Listen to music, have a coffee, and relax, and interact with others in our community.
Our mission is to help students become the best musicians and people that they can be. And as they say, it takes a village.
We focus on helping you learn and grow. And we also help our employees learn and grow. And in that way, we are all focused on the same thing: growing as people through music. We’d love for you to join us, because it makes us happy to help you grow as a musician, too.
No matter your level or ability, we’ll welcome you in to our community.
[They] make you feel comfortable during your lessons … and [no one] will pass judgment on your abilities. I can only say positive things about the staff. Everyone has been super kind and they will always give you a warm welcome.Natalie Mendo Google Reviews
For our students who take their music lessons online, we’ve got Sage Music Meet. It’s a dedicated private virtual lesson room that allows you to share music, video files and musical scores with your teacher. You can set up multiple cameras and video feeds for the best view. And your lessons are recorded so you can always go back and review your previous lessons. It's a part of our larger student app.
Our student app is designed to help you easily manage your lessons, schedule appointments, track your goals and progress, plus so much more. With our full time development team, it's getting better day by day, and we are always adding new features.
