Private lessons

Seattle Music House offers private lessons to students of all ages and levels. Private lessons are one-on-one classes which allow for the instructor to cater to the individual student’s skills, abilities, and interests.

We offer 30, 45, and 60-minute private lessons in piano, piano improvisation, violin, viola, cello, bass, guitar, saxophone, voice, and drums.

Semi-Private Lessons

We also offer semi-private lessons (2-3 students) for a reduced tuition rate. Semi-private lessons are an engaging and effective way for beginning students (ages approximately 5 - 7 years old) to learn the basics in a small group setting. Students learn from the instructor and also from one another, gaining confidence and performance experience through playing in front of their peers.

Availability for semi-private lessons depends on enrollment.

In-Home Lessons

Seattle Music House now offers in-home lessons on a case-by-case basis depending on the instructor’s availability and neighborhood. A small additional convenience fee will be added to in-home lessons to accommodate the instructor’s time and travel costs.


SMH provides weekly lessons which are grouped into four sessions per calendar year: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. Each session is approximately 11-12 weeks long, with the exception of Summer Session, which is 6 weeks. However, new students may start anytime during the session for a prorated tuition. Please contact the teachers at info@seattlemusichouse.com to schedule your lesson time.


Lesson prices vary depending on the instructor and the type of lessons. Tuition for the entire session is due in full at the beginning of each session.
