The Music House is...

...a community of young musicians and adults pursuing their passion, and an incubator of the next generation of performers and audiences.  

 

We connect students to their instrument, each other, and to the community.

 

We are active creators: engaged in mastering new music, improvising, songwriting/composing, recording, music production and recording technology.

We grow through practice, performance, workshops, and collaborations.

Ms. Larson holds Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the University of Texas at Austin,  and her songwriting has been recognized by the Woody Guthrie Songwriting Competition (2nd Place, 2019), as well as by  the Austin Songwriter Group (finalist, Spring 2016 Austin Songwriters's Group Song Awards) and the B.W.

Individual lessons are the cornerstone of our studio.  Weekly lessons include sightreading, improvisation, theory, composition, and technique.  Students enrolled in weekly lessons will choose between 2 tracks of concentration,  Performer or Creator, and experience a combination of one-to-one and workshop/masterclass instruction.

 

Our music is as eclectic as our students. Beginning and intermediate students combine traditional method books selections with other music that inspires them, with guidedance by Ms. Anna.   Classical, rock, country, broadway, folk- we're open to it all.

Experience the Performer or Creator track workshops without the weekly individual lesson time committment. Any of the 4 workshop topics will be available for young musicians, both online and in-person. These are open to all in the community. 

This  monthly membership gives you access to online classes, PDFs & instructional videos, one-on-one coaching support, and monthly performance opportunities (whether you're playing or hanging out!). Tap into your creativity in a way that fits your busy schedule!
