Learning music is much like learning any other skill. The more comfortable a student feels with the instructor, the better the student will learn. Ask a friend, ask your local music store, try a recommended instructor, and don't be afraid to try a different one if the first doesn't work out. No matter how you find an instructor, we recommend private music lessons. One-on-one learning with a professional gives students access to an expert that will boost abilities and confidence. Chances are a private instructor also plays professionally, which means they are plugged in to the music in your town. This gives their students a direct link to access their music community.
Our rental program is tailored to students. Most youngsters don’t know if they are going to like playing or if they are going to like the instrument they are first attracted to. Our rental program is very flexible, allowing students to change their minds.
The first step in choosing an instrument is exposing yourself to music, lots of different kinds of music. Then ask yourself what sounds you are attracted to. Liking the sound or the potential sound of the instrument you are learning makes playing enjoyable and practicing agreeable. There are physical factors to playing particular instruments: mouth shape, arm length, strength, etc. can influence your effectiveness. Try out a few instruments to see what feels comfortable.

Music is for everyone of every age. Babies should be exposed to music in utero. Music classes such as Kindermusik are designed for infants through preschool-aged children, and are offered at The Vibes Fine and Performing Arts School in Casper and by other instructors in the state. Instruments can be learned from a young age; as soon as a child shows interest. You are never too young or too old to participate in music.
