We believe that music lessons should be supportive, nurturing and fun

Whether in private or semi-private lessons, group after-school music classes, or summer rock band camp, with Hummingbird Music School students are given a solid foundation in instrument technique, note and rhythm reading, music theory and music history. But most of all, students experience the joy of playing music.

We offer private in-home lessons in piano, guitar, bass, ukulele, mandolin, trumpet, french horn, trombone, euphonium, baritone, tuba, percussion, drums, violin, viola, cello and voice

Registration is simple:

1) Students sign up for either 30 minute (4-5 years old), 45 minute (6+ years old), or 60 minute private in-home lessons

2) Students schedule a weekly lesson time and are assigned a teacher based on your availability and our teachers' openings, and take one lesson per week with that same teacher

3) Payment is billed quarterly, monthly, or per lesson, and we have a flexible reschedule policy. Read about payment here.

We together are a community of musicians 

We offer opportunities for students to meet and play for one another at school-wide recitals and performances. When you register for music lessons with Hummingbird Music School, you are joining a community of Bay Area families committed to music education.
