Quality music lessons for people of all ages
Guitar & Ukulele
One of the foundational instruments of contemporary music, our guitar instructors teach across genres and will equip you to play for yourself or as part of a group.
The piano is both approachable for young beginners and richly complex for advanced players, and is perfect for learning to read music and building a strong musical foundation.
The vocal instrument is a complex living system and healthy technique is the key to lifelong enjoyment. Let our instructors guide you on your journey of expression and discovery.

Praise for Velocity Music Academy
Ulrich is a fabulously patient teacher! We enjoy the time he invests in teaching our daughter and we are enrolling our other kids in classes because of the great, positive experience Cayli has had at Velocity.
So, my experience is be sure to have a teacher that your kids have “fun” with. If you start out hard core with someone who “raps on their knuckles”(euphemism) they can lose interest quickly. Make sure the teacher plays games with them and uses “apps” to engage their interest where they can write their own songs, etc…. Most importantly – have a teacher that lets them play familiar songs and can write simple music to popular songs they know. This will ensure they are engaged with the process and hopefully maintain their interest. It’s not until they realize they can play “actual” music that they really begin to enjoy it so “fun and engaging” from the get go is key. Beethoven can come once they’ve mastered the basics and have a love for making music happen. We love Kathy Rabago at Velocity Music.
I wanted to ping you to let you know how pleased I am with G.’s progress under Tom’s teaching. Tom’s very skilled and engaging and G. is blossoming as a student – he lovs guitar and counts the days between his lessons.
We love velocity. The facility is always very welcoming and cheerful. My 3 y.o. Enjoys the music together sessions. I feel like it’s encouraging him to develop a love of music and even helping with his rhythm in gross motor skills. Shane is teaching my 6 y.o. Beginning piano. He’s very patient and adaptive to meet her needs depending on the day. I really appreciate how kind and courteous he is and how he makes things easy for her to understand and practice. We are definitely happy we chose velocity!
Shane has been a wonderful piano teacher for our 6-year old son. He is extremely patient and has a great rapport with children. He has a great judgment and ability to provide right balance of instructions and challenges, and keep his classes enjoyable. It has been our pleasure participating in his classes, and we highly recommend him.
For the last 3 1/2 years Kathy Rabago has been my daughters piano teacher. She has excelled in her piano skills and abilities due to this teacher’s patience and knowledge. Thank you Kathy for all you’ve done!
Thank you, Velocity School of Music. Your wonderful guitar teacher, Ulrich Ellison, has inspired and nurtured our 7 year old in his love for the guitar and he loves going to each lesson. Your school is friendly, welcoming and top-notch!
My son is working with Abby to learn to play the cello, and we are both so happy to be working with such a talented and kind person!
The kids are having a blast doing music this summer with Jonathan, Sarah, and Josh. The boys tell me they wish their lessons were longer! Great teachers – just what they needed this summer- they are playing some really fun pieces. They each love their teachers.
Velocity has changed Dalton’s life and he has gained so much confidence and loves the piano.
Mercer has really enjoyed his first couple of lessons and Ashley is just awesome! He looks forward to the rest of the summer and hoping to continue into the next school year. Thanks!
