Music Lessons for All Ages

Welcome to Music On Main, El Segundo's music studio located in the heart of  
El Segundo, just one block south of Grand on Main Street.  We are a family owned and operated studio - serving El Segundo and the surrounding communities since 2010.  We are open 7 days a week and have daytime and evening appointments for your scheduling convenience.

We are pleased to offer private one-on-one music lessons in our brand new and expanded facility, with socially-distanced rooms, as well as private one-on-one music lessons via Zoom in the comfort of your own home.  We offer lessons for a wide variety of instruments in a variety of styles.  We pride ourselves on offering quality service at reasonable prices, and cater to the beginning musician as well as the intermediate and advanced music student.  

The teachers at Music On Main are highly experienced at teaching all ages and   skill levels - from the very young to the very wise...from the eager beginner to        the accomplished musician.  Most of our teachers have advanced university degrees, and all are professional working musicians with varied performance  credits, including performances with bands and orchestras.  They bring this very special expertise to each of their students.  Our teachers are carefully screened before they are hired and are chosen from among dozens of applicants.

Our air conditioned and ventilated teaching studios feature observation windows, and they come equipped with high-end pianos, guitar amplifiers and drums.  For your  convenience, we have a waiting area inside the studio with free wifi.  There are also a number of shops and restaurants in the area if you prefer not to wait in the studio. 

We are committed to the belief that music education is an important LIFE SKILL for everyone.  Learning a musical instrument bolsters creativity, teaches effective communication skills and encourages the values of self-discipline, discovery and expression.  Music lessons also increase spatial and cognitive abilities in children which helps them in math and science.

While there are many benefits to starting young children out on instruments, there are also issues to take into consideration beforehand, such as the size of the child and instrument, the attention span of the child, and the child's level of interest in music.  Because children at such a young age are still growing, many full-size instruments are too big to be handled by children.  The piano is usually one of the best instruments for small children as there is a large amount of repertoire that can be adapted to their size and abilities.  

Although it is possible to start learning specific instruments too early, it is never too late to begin studying music!
