Piano, Guitar, Bass & Drum Lessons in Tempe, AZ – Music Lessons Arizona


Why should I take lessons from you? Aren’t all teachers the same?

When searching for music lessons and the right teacher there are many things to consider. Is the teacher highly experienced? Have they studied from great teachers themselves? Do they have a college degree in music? Does the teacher have proven systems and methods in place to get results for their students? Are their students successful? Can they customize a specific lesson plan for your specific needs? Do they offer a professional and comfortable studio environment conducive for learning? Is the teacher constantly researching methods for improving their teaching strategies to benefit their students? Does the teacher offer performances and collaborative opportunities for their students?

At Music Lessons Arizona we proudly say yes to all of these questions. We pride ourselves on being able to offer the best music education experience to our students.

Many other teachers do not offer these benefits to their students and in fact are not even qualified to offer lessons. Why waste your time and money on someone who has no clue of how to teach and will not get you the results you seek? Contact us today to see how we can help you achieve your musical goals the fastest and most effective way possible.

How much do lessons cost?

We have a variety of lesson packages. In order to present which lesson package or packages are most suitable for you, we would have to get to know you, what you’re looking for in music education, what your musical experience is, the challenges you have, goals you’d like to reach and several other things.

Visit our CONTACT PAGE and fill out a questionnaire in which you provide information about yourself and musical interests. When the questionnaire is completed, we will contact you to schedule a free consultation where we can get to know one another and determine what we can do for you and your musical needs.

What does the consultation entail?

Based on the information you have provided in the questionnaire, we will discuss in more detail what music services you are looking for and what we can do for you. If you have prior experience, we would like to hear you play some prepared pieces so we can assess your ability level. After the assessment, we will create a customized program tailored to your specific musical goals. We can also answer any questions you have. From there, we can decide if it makes sense to work together towards your musical success.

What kind of students do you accept?

We specialize in working with students that have prior musical experience, who are passionate about music, looking to accelerate their playing, are dedicated to improving on their instrument and driven to reach their musical goals.

We also work with beginners who are dedicated and committed to the process of learning a musical instrument.

I am a beginner, do I need an instrument to start lessons?

Yes. You will need an instrument to practice on. If you do not own an instrument we can make recommendations for purchasing one.

Do you rent instruments or have instruments to borrow at your studio?

We provide amplifiers, instruments cables, keyboards, drum sets, a grand piano and music stands at our studio. We do not rent or lend guitars or basses to students. There are rent-to-own options for pianos that we can recommend.


"Matt's guitar lessons are fun and I am definitely a better guitar player than I was. Love It!!!"

- Mike S.

"Matt is a wonderful teacher. He has been teaching my daughter guitar since she was 7 years old. She's stuck with it now for two years, which I'm told is very rare. He has a very easy way about him, which makes his students feel comfortable. I'm very pleased we found Matt. My daughter is now at the point where she and Matt can "jam" together, which is her favorite part. If you are looking for someone to teach you or your child, look no further. I highly recommend him."

"Miss Sherin is an outstanding classical piano teacher! We changed piano teachers and I am just amazed by how much my girls have learned from her. Their growth is so impressive. If you are looking for excellent training for your children, then Tempe Music Studio is the place. She is top-notch!"

- Amy K

"I have been taking piano lessons with Sherin for two years and overall it's been an extremely fulfilling experience. I've started off as a beginner, and she has been extremely patient while helping me achieve my musical goals. Sherin's enthusiasm for teaching is apparent and I feel like she really cares about my progress. I can be a little finicky about the pieces I want to play, and Sherin has always been a good sport about helping me select new pieces to my taste and within my ability. During our lessons she places a strong emphasis on the fundamentals, stressing articulations and technique, while also intertwining musical theory so that I gain a deeper understanding of the music I am studying.

If you are looking for a piano instructor, I highly recommend Sherin!"

"I have been a drum student for a little over a year now. Before that , I was self taught. The amount I learned after I started with Matt's teaching far exceeded what I accomplished in several years of self-teaching and books.

The best thing about the instruction is how Matt customizes for different goals and needs. Matt draws on many different teaching sources and techniques as well as personal experience.

The periods of instruction are very fun for me and no matter what we accomplished during the lesson, I am always thrown a new challenge at the end that I can work with and progress further. I will keep going as long as Matt teaches."

- Matt S.

"Matt has been my guitar teacher over the past year and his help has been very significant in my improvement as a guitar player. Matt has helped me through multiple songs such as the Allman Brothers version of “Stormy Monday”, “Wanted Dead or Alive” by Bon Jovi and Led Zeppelins “Gallows Pole”.

More importantly Matt has definitely improved my rhythm playing as well as my ability to play solos. He has also taught me about the role of the guitar player in a band and relates that role to rhythm, chords and solos that are played. He provided a structure that helped me better learn the fret board. Matt is very competent with music theory and conveys what is necessary for the student to be more competent and further enjoy playing guitar.

At each of our lessons Matt demonstrates his expertise in music and guitar. Additionally, and important to me, is that Matt represents and conducts himself in a polite and professional manner. He is easy and fun to work with and cares about the success of his students."

"Ms. Sherin is an excellent piano teacher. I have been taking lessons from her for almost 1 and a half years now. She integrates technique and musicality very well. I personally have a lot of trouble with musical expression and she helps with adding more expression and emotion to your music. Overall, I have learned a lot from her and I believe my skills have improved since I began taking lessons from her."
