What Parents Are Saying About Stages Music Arts:

I have had an amazing experience at Stages. From my incredibly knowledgeable and talented teacher Emily G, to the customer service staff (shout-out to Caitlin) - if you're in the market for voice/music lessons, I don't think you can make a better choice than Stages. Super talented teachers (and students!), incredibly helpful/responsive staff, and a beautiful, state of the art environment. 5 stars!!

I recently started taking lessons at Stages Music Arts in Baltimore and I’m so impressed with their teaching programs, amazing staff and musical community. My teacher, Evan Cooper, is not only incredibly talented, but has a gift for identifying the best teaching style and method for each student. He is kind, patient, and truly cares about each of his students. He encouraged me to join the Stages adult band program, and one year after my first lesson, I had the opportunity to perform with my Stages bandmates at a local live venue. The instructors and staff are very friendly and care very much for every student who comes through their doors. I highly recommend joining the Stages Music Arts family!

My daughter has taken several different lessons at Stages over the last few years. We have yet to have a bad experience. The instructors are friendly and seem to know their stuff. She is currently taking drums with Taso and has made tremendous growth. Highly recommend Stages for music lessons!

My daughter has been taking both vocal & guitar lessons for about 18 months now. We are extremely happy with the results. Stages has not only taught her how to play the guitar and helped with her singing, they have also provided opportunities for her to play and perform in the community with one of their various bands that they put together with students. Stages also hosts an open mic night periodically that also allows my child the opportunity to perform in their state of the art performance hall.

If you are looking for a "30 minutes and out" kinda place for lessons, go somewhere else. BUT, if you are looking for a community of musicians who are committed to cultivating musical growth and excellence, friendships and fun- then stages is your new tribe!

Stages manages to be both professional and like family. Everyone is courteous, friendly, and knowledgeable. My daughter has been in piano lessons for years and has made tremendous progress. They were amazing with hybrid options during the pandemic and this was so helpful!! The best part is she really looks forward to her lessons with Ms. Molly each time. Thank you, Stages!

I love Stages Music. I started taking guitar lessons last year and every instructor is an expert in their instrument. Sometimes more than one. The customer service is great, the facility is top notch, and the performances are great. If you love music so much you want to learn to play, I highly recommend this place.

Although I am an instructor at Stages Music Arts, I am also a client!!! My daughter takes voice lessons with Shannon and is having a blast. My wife and I are very pleased. I’ve also brought in my own group to record at Stages Music Arts. Dave Nachodsky is a wizard of an engineer and I would recommend his services to anyone interested in a professional recording!
