Welcome to So i Heard Music! We can’t wait to show you what we’re all about.

Trial lessons at So i Heard are a great way to see if this is the right place for you and your student, without committing to a full month of lessons. A trial is a full lesson, and in most cases, it is with an instructor in a time slot that is available to book.

Here are the most common questions and answers regarding trial lessons, and what you can expect.

Is this just a demo with no teaching? Or is it an actual lesson?

For the most part, a trial lesson at So i Heard is a full lesson. There is an opportunity for the parent to meet with the instructor and discuss goals, as well as time to see where the student’s ability level ranks. After that, the instructor will typically get right into it!

What do I need to bring?

If your student is a complete beginner, they don’t need to bring anything! If they have an instrument already that is travel-worthy, like a guitar, they can bring it. For drums and piano, we have those here, but please bring any music from prior lessons so the instructor can get a feel for the student’s ability.

Do I need to buy anything right away?

For all lessons, we recommend having instruments at home for practice during the week. For the trial lesson, don’t worry about running out to buy something just for the trial. Take a few minutes to chat with the instructor at your upcoming trial lesson about what instrument to purchase, then decide after. Beginner drum students can get away with just a practice pad and sticks for a while, so don’t worry about needing a drum kit right away!

Who is my instructor?

All instructors at So i Heard have passed a background check, and have a music degree or equivalent. All instructors are fun, youthful, and great at connecting with kids! To see information about your instructor, navigate to our website to view teacher bios.

What happens if I don’t like my instructor?

While it is rare, sometimes the fit isn’t there between the student and the new instructor. If the fit is questionable, but still in the right ballpark, sometimes things work themselves out after a few lessons. Many times the student is shy and may take a few lessons for the instructor to gain trust. If the fit really is not there, please let us know, and we can try a different instructor at no charge. We want everyone to be happy!

How do I enroll?

After your trial lesson, talk to the front desk staff to provide a credit card and enroll! If you’d like to take some time to think about it and speak with your child, let us know and we can hold the time slot until the next business day.


We’re looking forward to seeing you and your student at your upcoming trial! Please call or email us if you have any questions.
