The Bass(ics): Having fun while learning and performing is what this family-run music school is all about. With locations all over Puget Sound including Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond and Seattle, 4/4 offers lots of instruments and styles of music for your kiddo to choose from. One-on-one lessons start at age 5 for piano, ukulele, violin and drums; young guitarists and bassists can start shredding at 7. While future lead-singers can begin voice lessons at 10. There’s Music for Kids (fun sing-a-long lessons that teach 5-9 year olds pitch and rhythm), plus rock and musical theater camps. When your rock stars are ready to hit the stage, they can perform in a concert for friends and family.
