Business Details



in Business

Our students learn to play faster, enjoy lessons more and stick with their instrument longer. This is because we custom-tailor each lesson to the student's learning style and personality. You and/or your child will be playing right from the start and will be set up to enjoy a lifetime of music. Our teachers stand apart through their commitment to give each student a unique opportunity to experience the amazing effects that come with taking music lessons. Students come away with top-notch musical training, as well as increased confidence and self-esteem, enhanced brain and body function, and a greater appreciation for something we can all connect with - music. We go through an exhausting screening process to find and train teachers who are musicians, not musicians who want to "teach" on the side. We also have Music Therapists on staff for working with children and adults that have learning disabilities and special needs.  All this is a testament to our mission here at teVelde Music, Inc. We use music to spread joy. Come have fun with us!

If you answer "yes" to 3 or more of these, musical talent is there. Everyone is welcome! We offer lessons in all instruments and voice, as well as music therapy. Our teachers are highly trained and specialize in all types of learning:  1) Intro to Music (2-4 yrs)  2) Beg-Adv Lessons for Youth (5-12 yrs) 3) Beg-Adv Lessons for Teens (13-17 yrs) 4) Beg-Adv Lessons for Adults (18-54 yrs) 5) Older Adult Learning (55 and over) 6) Music Therapy for ADD, ADHD, Autism, TBI, and other learning & physical disabilities.  7) Music Therapy for the elderly and handicapped.

Mission Statement: To help each student develop their unique musical talents in a way that motivates them to achieve their highest goals. We want our students to love music! To make sure each student connects with their teacher, and have the most positive learning experience possible. To make sure our teachers love to teach every student they are given! To make sure that our students love to learn music from the first time they have a lesson at our school! To insure that every teacher and every student has the support they need to achieve personal excellence! To provide opportunities for brain development at every stage of life! To teach teachers and students the process of setting and achieving goals. To teach parents and teachers about the benefits of starting lessons as young as possible. To teach parents how to support their children effectively at home. To teach teachers how to help their students develop Perfect Absolute Pitch (AP). To make the best musical education affordable. Perfect Absolute Pitch: Our Greatest Mission We consider our greatest contribution to every student and potential musician is the opportunity to work with us develop perfect absolute pitch (AP), or relative pitch recognition in every student. teVelde Music, Inc. specializes in helping students learn to hear "in color". It has long been thought that AP can only be taught before the age of 6, otherwise the ability is lost forever. We are breaking new ground by being able to teach AP to students of ANY AGE! Our teachers specialize in developing this ability in all of our students.

My son started lessons at teVelde when he was just 3 1/2. At the time, I thought that he would be too young, but Bonnie assured us that he would learn Perfect Pitch if he started. Now, 6 years later, at 9, my son not only has Perfect Pitch, but he plays piano beautifully and reads music fluently! My 4 year old daughter started lessons about 2 years ago, and at 6, she also now has Perfect Pitch. Our family has been so blessed by Bonnie teVelde and her wonderful team of teachers. She mat...view moreched both of my children up with exactly the right teacher and instrument for their personality types through a site called As a result, they LOVE their lessons every week.

I just can't say enough about teVelde Schools of Music. Lessons of this quality should be a lot more expensive. Every teacher takes personal care to see that my children get fun, motivational, and thorough music lessons. Their concerts are twice a year, and teVelde spends the extra money to rent the Clark Center with the Steinway Piano just so our children will get an opportunity to play in a beautiful concert hall on a professional piano!

teVelde is a first class experience in every way, at a price that fits into our family budget. Parents are encouraged to participate in their children's lessons, at no extra cost. My son did the School of Rock Summer Camp and the Piano Boot Camp this last summer. Now he can play a song on 4 instruments he never played before, and I can't believe how motivated he is to play. My daughter is continually singing and playing her songs on the piano. They have 2 schools, one in SLO, and one in Arroyo Grande, and we can have lessons at either one! Our kid's schedules change every season with sports and scouts, and teVelde works with us to find lesson times that are convenient for both of our children.

Last Spring, 2013, my husband and I made the decision to start lessons ourselves. My husband takes guitar, and I am taking banjo. Our goal is to play music together as a family. This is a dream Bonnie had for us 6 years ago, but at the time, I had no idea it could actually happen. If you have big musical dreams for your family, take lessons at the school that can make them come true!

What a blessing to have schools of this caliber in our Central Coast community!

My daughter, Emily, age 8, has been taking piano lessons with Cassidy at teVelde for 2 years. At the start of her lessons she dreaded going, but within a few weeks she started being extremely excited to see him. Cassidy is an excellent instructor, and is very good with kids!

Emily is now also attending teVelde's "School of Rock 1" Summer Camp. She loves it! It is a small group & they all learn different instruments & sing. The kids laugh & h

My daughter has been taking music lessons at teVelde School of Music for only about half a year; but the progress she's made (even at the tender age of 4-1/2 by the way) is amazing. Her teacher is amazing, patient, knowledgeable and VERY VERY good at what she does. The owner, Bonnie (who is not only a wonderful musician and writer) is brilliant when it comes to understanding kids (or anyone who wants to learn music) and what they need to excel in music. This music school is unlike any ...view moreother on the Central Coast - and in fact, the method they teach (Perfect Pitch) is one of the very few places IN THE COUNTRY that are trained to teach it. If you are serious about music or about your child's education in music (or getting them started and on the RIGHT path in music) - you should experience the best and call them. Thank you te Velde Music for your amazing support of our daughter's "gift" and love for music.view less
