Other Benefits to Consider:


Choose from many different types of teachers who teach a wide variety of instruments!

This allows you to learn the instrument you want and even have siblings or other family members take lessons at the same time, or back-to-back. You can easily change teachers or instruments along your journey or even add a second instrument like many of our students choose to do once they've built a solid foundation.

We're open 6 days a week, and offer a wide range of lesson times!

Every family’s schedule is different, so we offer a wide selection of available lesson times. We even have morning, early afternoon, and late evening lesson times available for homeschoolers, college students, and working professionals. If weekends work better for your schedule, Saturdays are a great option!

In-person or online lessons for piano, guitar, voice, violin, ukulele, drums, and more!

We offer instruction in over 25 different instruments including piano, guitar, voice, violin, viola, cello, upright bass, drums, electric bass, flute, trumpet, saxophone, clarinet, mandolin, ukulele, and more! Students can attend weekly lessons in-person or online, and can access many useful features within their online "student portal"!

Student performances give encouragement and confidence to students!

At LSM we offer students many performance opportunities each year. With two formal recitals at Florida Southern College, Open Mic Events, Annual Children's Day Festival at Florida Children's Museum, and other Community Events, there's always something to look forward to perform in if they wish to!

We know you value safety and security-- and we do too!

To ensure the safety of our students, we do background checks on all of our teachers, have windows on all of our lesson room doors, and offer an "open door" policy in which parents are always welcome to sit in on their child's music lessons. In 15+ years of doing business, we've never had an issue and that’s because we go above and beyond for our families!"

Month to Month Lessons

Our desire is to inspire our students with the love of music. We do this through caring teachers who are committed to teaching the music that our students love! Unlike other programs, we do not require semester minimums for lessons. You can begin anytime! You can also stop lessons in your student portal at anytime up until the last day of each month. No long-term commitments ever!

Nationally Recognized Standard of Musical Excellence

Lakeland School Of Music participates in the Royal Conservatory Music Development Program. This program provides a nationally recognized standard of musical excellence through graded assessments which students are able to earn merit certificates at each level of study. Participation in the assessments are optional, and usually will begin only once students have completed 1-2 years of private study.

Trophies, certificates, and award wristbands to celebrate achievement!

We are the only music school in Lakeland that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies, AND certificates for passing musical tests. No other music reward system inspires students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder® is our unique method of music education that you can only get here!
More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins! You can only get the Musical Ladder® here. We also specialize in lessons for adults.
