Instruction for Piano, Harp, & Strings
"How can I get my child to practice at home?"
Our Accelerated Piano & Strings Program focuses on solving the problem of home practice. In traditional piano lessons, a significant set back can be the lack of confidence students have in their abilities. Our Accelerated Program develops a sense of confidence and independence that leaves our students feeling accomplished and excited about music. Here are some of the benefits:
- Students' music reading ability will drastically improve
- Students will complete their method books faster
- Practice at home will become easier
- Students will have fewer questions at home
"Thank you so much for...creating such a positive learning environment! K. can be shy in new situations, so I’m glad that she has come out of her “shell” so quickly. She had a great time [at her lesson] and said that she can’t wait to go back. I can’t believe how much she got through in just an hour! She has been practicing her songs and is looking forward to next Tuesday.
-Christina T., February 2020
Enjoy lessons. Enjoy playing.
Music Lessons last a lifetime! Our mission at The Music Studio of Stafford is to ensure our students enjoy their lessons, enjoy practicing, and love music by developing the reading, technique, and performance skills necessary for them to become independent, literate musicians. We strive to make our lessons the activity your child looks forward to all week, and that your home is filled with beautiful music.
"My granddaughter has been taking piano lessons at The Music Studio for 4 years! She has progressed so well under the guidance of their wonderful program! I highly recommend taking piano lessons here. Wonderful atmosphere and wonderful people!"

Recitals and Performance Opportunities
Trophies, Certificates, and Award Wrist Bands to celebrate achievement
We are the only music school in the Stafford area that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests through a patented program. The Musical Ladder® system is our unique method of music education that you will only find at The Music Studio. More importantly, when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins.
Great Location, Space, Waiting Area
The Music Studio is centrally located near the Stafford Courthouse, convenient to schools, convenience stores, grocery, and the post office. We have spacious teaching studios, a kitchen, bathroom, and a comfortable waiting area for parents and siblings.
We take care of the music book shopping
No need to shop around for music books and sheets. We make sure we're supplied with all necessary materials so students have them when needed and parents don't have to make an extra trip to the music store.
Great Hours & Convenient Scheduling for Siblings
Lunchtime and afternoon classes available for homeschoolers, retirees, college students, and working professionals. Later evening/after work classes are also available. Siblings and other family members can schedule their lessons at the same time, for convenience.
No Long-Term Commitment
We do not ask our families to sign long-term contracts...lessons simply continue on a month-by-month basis.
We love referrals!
We really like it when current families recommend us and help us to bring in new students (this helps us greatly with advertising, and friends and neighbors are great to work with!), so we reward referrals with a free lesson credit, as well as a discount to the incoming family.
