La Palma may be the smallest city in Orange County in terms of area, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in standard of living. In 2013, CNN’s Money magazine ranked it #31 in the “Best places to live” among small cities in the US category. It’s safe and family friendly and boasts an excellent school system. But most importantly to us, it has a community full of families we love giving music lessons to.
Voice Lessons – La Palma
Singing lessons are our specialty at Molly’s Music. Our voice teachers are highly trained in a variety of techniques and styles, and we’ll gladly pair you with one whose background best fits your interests. Our La Palma students looking for studio vocal lessons occasionally travel to our Orange studio, but most opt for the comfort and convenience of in-home voice lessons in La Palma.
Because we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to singing, we teach a wide range of styles, tailoring our lessons to the interests of each student. Whether you’re a country girl, a rock star, a Broadway diva, or a shower singer, we’ll strive to learn what you’re passionate about and help you discover all that your voice is capable of.
Piano Lessons – La Palma
As with voice lessons, our piano lessons are tailored to individual interest. If you’re new to the instrument and want a step-by-step approach to reading music and learning piano, we offer piano lessons for beginners. It’s a perfect first instrument for helping you learn the basics of music, and even kids as young as 3 can often benefit from lessons. If you’ve already been playing for a while, we’ll assess you on your first lesson and help you pick up where you left off.
For singers just looking for a way to accompany themselves, we also offer a chordal approach to piano playing that will have you playing while you sing in no time. Almost all of our instrument teachers are voice teachers or vocal coaches as well, so if you’re taking in-home piano lessons in La Palma and are hoping to add in some singing lessons, we’d be happy to pair you with an instructor who can do both.
Guitar Lessons – La Palma
Piano may be the better starter instrument, but guitar lessons are the most popular instrument lessons we offer at Molly’s Music, and with good reason. It’s portable, versatile, and used in most of the popular music from the last 60 years. It’s also a perfect singer-songwriter instrument, so for singers hoping to write original music, the guitar is a great place to begin.
Whether you’re interested in classical guitar or rock guitar, acoustic or electric, our in-home guitar lessons in La Palma will have you playing your favorite music before you know it. And as with piano, if you’d like to include singing in your package, we’ll help find you a teacher who can work with you on both skill sets.
