Piano or Guitar Accelerated Group Lessons

An entire year of curriculum in only 20 lessons! Your child will be placed in a small group according to age and skill level. This team of students will learn and grow together, being motivated to practice consistently at home because they play with other musicians at each lesson, while still receiving individual attention.

Piano Lessons

Due to the focused consistency of lessons and practice, your child can emerge from Straight Shot with significant progress on their instrument. Designed for beginners or students with previous lessons for piano to accomplish an entire level in only 3 months!

Guitar Lessons

Our Straight Shot session for guitar players covers an entire year of curriculum, like our other sessions, but does this in only 3 months! Our group lessons are for both beginners and students with previous guitar experience and designed for kids to learn to read notes, play chords, and improvise.

How Does Arrow Academy Compare?

With many options for music lessons for your child, finding the best fit can be overwhelming. The chart shows a variety of teaching philosophies and how they compare with Arrow Academy of Music’s concept based learning philosophy.
