The Sage Music® Difference

Not all music schools are created the same, even if they are all mostly 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 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 student, perform in our open mics, recitals and other events.

What does it look like taking lessons at Sage Music?

Our vision is simple. To help you become the best person and musician that you can be.

It takes a lot of work and effort to do that, and our school is built around that idea. That simple idea makes our school very different, and we think you’ll see why.

Student Onboarding – Focus on your dreams and goals. You tell us the destination, and we’ll get you there.

After you register, we do a student onboarding session before your lessons begin. 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 to escape from work. The point is, no two students are alike, and so we are going to 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.

The Arpeggio® lesson framework – Providing you consistent, quality music lessons

To ensure that you get a consistent and quality experience, all of our lessons are taught with our unique Arpeggio® lesson framework. It’s actually an acronym for the 8 step process we use in each lesson to guarantee that you 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. In fact, this framework is partly why students see so much progress here that they stay enrolled with us 3 times longer than other schools.

Sage Teacher Training – Our teachers are trained and supervised to help you learn best

Yes, 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 contractors who are really just in business for themselves. We invest in our teachers so that they can in turn invest in you. That also means that our teachers are well supervised, so that when you study at Sage Music, you get a great teacher, but you also get an entire school behind you, to help you reach your goals.


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.
