Need some ideas for last-minute holiday gifts? No worries, we’ve got you covered! Photo by Mel Poole on Unsplash

Give the gift of music this holiday season! It’s not too late to give the gift of an experience that will be remembered for years to come. Whether it’s encouraging a family member to finally learn to play an instrument, helping them take their practice to the next level, getting a group out for a night out on the town, or providing an opportunity for someone to get more involved in their community – we have something for almost everyone on your list!

Gifts The Entire Family Can Enjoy…

  • Music classes: We have lots of music classes for every level and age. Explore classes based on your instrument or genre of interest.
  • Private Lessons: Not looking to start with a group yet? That’s ok! Whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced musician looking to take your playing to another level, private lessons can help you get there.
  • Tickets to Four Mile Historic Park’s December Delights featuring Snow on the Grove series featuring SHM teachers performing live music every Friday. December Delights runs through January 2nd.
  • Plan ahead and have something to look forward to w/ Ukefest Tickets (May 2022)

Gifts For Your Partner (and a future date night)

Give them the experience of a workshop. We have quite the options, whether you play an instrument, sing, want something genre or artist specific, good chance is we have it! Better yet, sign up together and make it a date night!
