Strings Lessons


You can hear stringed instruments in nearly every style of music, from classical to bluegrass. At Music Royale, we have instructors that can help you learn the specific style of music that meets your tastes. We have professional instructors for violin, viola, cello and upright bass. We teach all levels including beginner, intermediate and advanced students. Our lessons are one on one, privately taught so you can progress at the speed that works for you. At Music Royale, we offer many student performance opportunities throughout the year including recitals and informal performances. Our lesson rates are very competitive and all of our lessons are scheduled month to month, with no long term contracts to sign.

Music Royale is a locally owned independent music store operated by professional musicians. We are located 3.5 miles north of 270 in Powell, at the intersection of Sawmill Parkway and Powell Road. We are just a few minutes from Columbus, Worthington, Dublin, Lewis Center and Delaware and we have plenty of parking.
