In-store/in-person lessons now available! Remote lessons remain available too!

The Candyman Music Education Center has begun to phase in-person lessons back into the store while continuing to offer remote lessons through Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, or another video call service to those who prefer them.


During this time, we are taking all of the necessary precautions to keep our store as safe as possible for our customers, students, staff, and teachers. The following protocols have been put into place for all teachers and students to follow:

  • All students and teachers must wash their hands or apply hand sanitizer before entering the studio or touching any merchandise. 

  • All equipment will be sanitized before and after the lesson. 

  • All students should bring their own instrument. (Drums, pianos, amplifiers, and cables will be provided and will be disinfected before and after each use.) 

  • All teachers and students must wear a mask or face covering at all times during each lesson. 

  • Teachers and students will remain at least 6 feet apart for the entirety of the lesson. Studios that do not allow a 6-foot distance between student and teacher will not be used. 

  • A space of at least 15 minutes will be built in between each lesson to allow time for teachers to disinfect equipment. 


Please note: We are not able to offer in-store lessons on wind instruments just yet.
