Our Story...  

Shane and Chalis Butler owned competing music schools in Lakeland, Florida for several years before eventually becoming great friends.  When that friendship grew into a love for  one another, they decided it was time to join forces.

So... through a series of most fortunate events, they were married with a bang on July 4th! ...two artists with a passion for music and community, once rival competitors, now forever united, and as the saying goes, "if you can't beat 'em... join 'em!"

Lemon Street Music is the vision that Chalis and Shane both shared for many years...  a community of passionate artists committed to creating, teaching, mentoring, and sharing the gift of music.  In addition to private instruction in piano, guitar, voice, drums, bass, violin, flute, banjo, and ukulele, the Lemon Street Music Venue also offers opportunities for both youth and adults to experience music in an exciting way, with jam band and improvisation opportunities, coffeehouse and open mic events, workshops and masterclasses in songwriting, music theory, and technique relating to specific instruments.   Please visit our teachers page to learn more about the incredible artists and instructors affiliated with Lemon Street Music, and don't forget to register below for your free trial lesson, normally a $25 value.
