Aliso Viejo’s motto is “Live, Work, Learn, Shop and Play,” and we couldn’t agree more. Our music lessons are, of course, about learning, but they’re also about play and self-discovery. At Molly’s Music, we believe that hard work is a crucial element in becoming a good musician but that there has to be an element of passion involved for someone to become a great musician. That’s why we focus on the styles and genres that our students are truly moved by, instead of foisting a one-size-fits-all approach on their lessons.
Some of our Aliso Viejo students choose to take their music lessons at our Costa Mesa studio, and others use the toll road to get to our Orange location, but most of them choose the comfort and convenience of in-home music lessons in Aliso Viejo—no Fast Pass needed.
Voice Lessons – Aliso Viejo
We teach students with a wide array of interests and backgrounds. Our teachers are just as excited about teaching the Katy Perry hit that’s on the radio as they are about teaching an art song, because our goal is to instill a lifelong love of singing in our students. We believe music should be joyful, and that the best way to make it so is to teach students what they love.
Singing lessons in Aliso Viejo have often helped prepare Aliso Niguel H.S. students for their SOCSA (South Orange County School of the Arts) auditions. Our students have excelled in a variety of musical genres.
Piano Lessons – Aliso Viejo
Some of our Aliso Viejo families choose to drive to our Costa Mesa studio because of the beautiful Kawai grand piano it features, but most of them take in-home piano lessons in Aliso Viejo. Not only are in-home lessons convenient, but they allow our teachers to help you learn the nuances of your particular instrument.
When it comes to versatility, you can’t beat the piano. Not only is it a great first instrument to help budding musicians build a musical foundation, but it’s also a wonderful stand-alone instrument for the concert hall, and an accompaniment instrument for the singer-songwriter playing and singing at an open mic night at the Neighborhood Cup. Because of this, our students often pair piano lessons with voice lessons and concentrate on chordal self-accompaniment. Almost all of our instrument teachers are also voice teachers, so we can help you find a teacher who’ll work with you on both. What could be more convenient?
Guitar Lessons – Aliso Viejo
The guitar is arguably the most popular sing-songwriter instrument, along with its younger sibling, the ukulele. As with the piano, many of our guitar lessons in Aliso Viejo are paired with singing lessons, so that students can accompany themselves on their favorite Taylor Swift or Led Zeppelin song. If you prefer the guitar as a stand-alone instrument, either for classical melodies or for shredding solos, we still have you covered!
Whether you want to learn acoustic or electric guitar, and whether you want to learn to strum or finger pick, we can help. We also offer lessons in the banjo, if you happen to want to jam with Mumford and Sons.
