UpTown Music

Our mission at UpTown Music in Westerville, OH is to help you create your own music.   Listening to music is great.   Going to shows and concerts is a blast.  But there is nothing like being able to make music for yourself.  Playing music makes life better.  It may be as simple as strumming three chords, or as challenging as pursuing a career as a professional musician.  Wherever your musical aspirations lead you, we have the trained, seasoned, experienced, and professional instructors to help you on your way.

We specialize in stringed instruments, drums, and vocal instruction.  We offer expert instruction in most musical styles, music theory, and composition.  If you are intending to study music in college we can help you get prepared for auditions and give you a solid base for your musical studies.

    I am looking to purchase a beginner lesson package as a birthday present. Do you provide the guitar for the lesson or would I need to rent one separately?

    Looking to start playing a guitar. I want to teach myself mostly but figured a couple starter lessons wouldn’t hurt.

      I agree that lessons at the beginning can be helpful instead of trying to figure it out on your own. Give us a call at 614-794-2183 to get something set up.

    Good morning! Our son recently purchased a banjo and has been teaching himself to play. We thought it would be great to purchase a package of lessons for him as a Christmas present to help him along. Would love info on lessons. Thanks much!

      Hi!

      Thanks for you inquiry!

      We do indeed offer banjo lessons, and I’m the banjo teacher. I’m have open lesson times scattered through the week. I’m in Westerville Monday-Thursday from about 10:00am to 9:00pm. We generally sell lessons by the month, so it’s $100 for 4 30 min lessons per month. I’m very flexible about rescheduling and doing makeup lessons. Feel free to call me and we can work out more specifics. 614-579-9971

      Thanks again!

    Hi! So I’m close to 50 and I’ve always loved the music the banjo makes. I’ve never touched o d before. Am I teachable? I played the piano when I was young, I really wanted to play the violin but my mom nixed that. I was never very good. I also played the flute in jr high and the snare drum for a second. But that was ages ago.
    Can I try these instruments with an instructor before I commit?

      Hi Linda!

      Of course you are teachable! The important thing is that you really want to play something. Sounds like you are interested in a lot of instruments….which one do you want to play?

      Feel free to call me if you want. Email and text is fine too.

      Hi Nancy!

      SO sorry to take so long to get back to you! I somehow missed your message. My apology.
      We do indeed offer mandolin lessons, and if you haven’t found a mandolin yet let me know and we can work out a rental arrangement. Feel free to call me if you want and we can work out details.

      Hi Renee!
      I’m resending this message because it looks like the original message I sent you didn’t make it through. (Using the mail server through out website host…it seems like it’s not completely reliable.)

      At the moment we don’t have a group lessons scheduled, but we offer individual lessons Monday-Thursday and Saturday. Feel free to call me to discuss details. Do you already have a uke?

      Thanks for your inquiry,
      Gary
