We offer private in person and virtual lessons with our professional instructors who are highly skilled in teaching as well as being professional performing musicians. We tailor the lessons to the students' needs and desires using a mixture of traditional methods and modern techniques. Students will learn the correct techniques for playing their instruments while learning both standard repertoire and current music. Students will have the opportunity to learn how to read music, transcribe music from recordings and compose. All ages and skill levels welcome. We also offer bi-annual optional recitals, the ability to record, and the opportunity to play with other students.

We believe that for many students, private lessons are only half the process in learning how to play an instrument. Sometimes, it's a mean to end, with the end goal to be able to play in a group setting. With that in mind, we offer instructor led ensembles of various styles of music. All groups meet weekly with their instructor, typically for 8-10 week sessions, before a culminating live performance or recording session. Groups are divided into both ages and experience levels. There are also groups exclusively for adults. Ensembles that have been offered include rock band, jazz band, string quartet, string trio, wind ensemble, ukulele band, and au Capela group. We are always open to new ideas as well, and with an amazing faculty that is able to handle most requests, we welcome suggestions.
Ensembles are offered in the fall, winter and spring, as well one-week versions in the summer. Detailed dates and times can be found at classes. All registrations for ensembles are done via the form at registrations.
Fall of 2023, Mattock School of Music is excited to announce the opening of S2, our recording studio housed inside of MSOM.
The recording studio at MSOM serves several purposes. First and foremost, it is a space where students can learn the art of audio engineering, with classes and lessons offered year round. Secondly, it is a fully staffed, professional recording studio for clients looking for a great environment to bring their art to life. And last, it is available for rental to engineers who need a bigger space, or equipment that they do not own.
Our main studio room is 600 square feet with amazing acoustics and an incredible “vibe”. There are also two isolation rooms, one equipped with a 5'10" Baldwin grand piano, and the other housing a Yamaha stage custom drum set as well as a 1965 Hammond B3 and matching Leslie speaker. The main lobby of the school serves as a great hang out space between takes, with a fully functional kitchen, and there are several other rooms for rehearsal and relaxation.
