Sage Music School, San Antonio, TX

Sage Music® – San Antonio’s Best Music School

Sage Music is not your ordinary music school. We create custom music lessons for all ages and levels based on your personal preferences and goals, expertly taught by our trained teachers using our Arpeggio lesson system.

We’re located in a historic building in the Tobin Hill neighborhood. We’re near the Pearl, San Antonio College, and the Methodist hospital center. We’re serve all of greater San Antonio, but are closest to the midtown, southdown, and downtown areas of the city.

As part of “Military City”, Sage Music’s founder – a retired USMC veteran – is proud to offer a discount to all active-duty, reserve, retired, and service-connected veterans.
