Why Take Music Lessons from CHSMA?

Learn from highly qualified teachers!

CHSMA’s faculty represents a diverse population of professional musicians trained specifically to teach others.  Many of our instructors have one or more advanced degrees and are active performers.  We also genuinely love helping students develop their own passion for music in our facility, but now you can have the same teachers for virtual lessons at home.


You have options!

No matter where you are physically, you can have the same access to individualized instruction that we provide to in-studio students.  We are currently offering in-person lessons for piano, strings and guitar on a limited basis (with woodwinds and voice returning later this summer). If you feel that online learning is the best/safest option for your family, we’ll provide that option for as long as you need.


Responsable, in-person instruction!

CHSMA is taking precautions to ensure a safe return to in-person instruction.   Our faculty and staff are fully vaccinated.  We have temporarily closed our indoor waiting area (we have a beautiful covered porch available!), we’ve implemented additional cleaning procedures, require masks, have updated our air filtration system, and are using only our largest studios for instruction.  


We know how to do online music lessons right!

We offer online music lessons to students of all ages and abilities, and cover all musical styles and genres. Our teachers have received special, ongoing training on how to give great and effective lessons online.  They’re also supported by our vast library of digital accompaniments and other online resources.



A reputation you can count on!

This year marks CHSMA’s 21st anniversary.  In this time we have provided exceptional music education to thousands of students in the Triangle.  Our reputation is built on the quality of instruction, responsive customer service, and our integrity.  You can count on us!

Need a few more reasons to take music lessons?

  • Children with musical backgrounds do better in subjects like language, reading, and math and have better fine motor skills than their non-musical classmates.
  • Practice provides a daily routine that can help keep a sense of structure.
  • Learning a skill provides new experiences and opportunities to accomplish something substantial.
  • Music activates every known part of the brain.  Listening to it is good.  Playing it is better!
  • Playing music reduces chronic stress by lowering the stress hormone cortisol.
  • Music can make you feel more hopeful, powerful, and in control of your life.

There’s no better time to pick up an instrument and bring music into your life.
