• About our Programs

    Off World Studio offers much more than the traditional "instrument lessons" found at many music stores, schools, and studios. When you enroll in one of Off World Studio's many instrument or academic Music Education Programs, you will receive a thorough, well-rounded education in all aspects of music and music performance.
  • Instruments

    All instrument programs are individually tailored to meet the needs of each student based on their level, experience, and interests. Programs include complete and progressive instruction in reading, technique, theory and application, history, and performance.
  • Academic Programs

    Theory and academic programs are individually tailored to meet the needs of each student based on their level, experience, and interests. Programs vary from sightsinging and ear-training designed to embellish a young musician’s private lessons or school band program, to intensive college preparation courses and advanced analytical theory.

Payment Policy

Enrollment in any of Off World Studio's Music Education Programs comes with much more than a weekly session.

Our programs are

  • Progressive
    Programs continually build a knowledge base while strengthening and incorporating past and present studies.

  • Motivational
    Music should be fun! We integrate the student's interests, and will not dwell on repetitive exercises providing little value to the student's progression.

  • Customized
    Each and every student is different, and so is each program. Your program is custom arranged for you, emphasizing your particular interests and working towards your specific goals, all the while introducing the vast diversity of the musical world to you.

There is no per lesson charge.

Your monthly payment reserves your specific day and time in one or more of Off World Studio's many Education Programs.

Program fees are based on an annual tuition and paid in monthly installments. The monthly fee remains the same regardless of how many weekly sessions occur in any month.

Academic Programs

While theory, sightsinging, composition, and improvisation are all covered in our instrument programs, we offer these topics in separate, more intensive sessions for particular students:

  • the student who wishes to more completely explore a particular area
  • for a band, orchestra, or private student who wants a more complete education
  • for the vocalist or non-instrumentalist looking to expand their abilities or explore other areas without learning a new instrument
  • for the college or university bound student looking to prepare for their undergraduate studies
  • any other adventurous, eager, or interested student!

Music Theory
Learn the Language of Music. Theory programs give the student a better understanding of and appreciation for music. Private theory sessions can be scheduled to enhance any music program or any level of musician.

Sightsinging
Learn to read music as fluently as you read your morning paper or favorite magazine. Theory and ear-training combine to give the student the ability to hear written music and vocalize it without playing an instrument.

Composition
Explore the tools and structure of writing music.

Improvisation
Become an instantaneous composer. Learn how to play solos, create melodies, and generally make music – on the spur of the moment!

Jazz Improvisation
A more intensive and comprehensive improvisation program tailored for the jazz student.

Analytical Theory
For the advanced student, college prep, or the truly adventurous. Investigate the musical world in depth, compare diverse musical philosophies, discover new and various perspectives on music, and explore history through music.

Improvisation programs require an instrument.
Theory, sightsinging, and composition can be taken without an instrument, but a basic keyboard knowledge is necessary and will be instructed as needed.
