The Private Lesson Curriculum

Our original curriculum supports the growth of a child's confidence, creativity, and communication skills.

At EchoKids, we balance use of traditional music competencies such as music theory and performance skills to reinforce non-traditional elements like exploring children's interests through writing original music and building communication skills through game play.

The "Secret Sauce"

One of the things that makes EchoKids truly unique is our mentor system. Rather than simply teach, our mentors encourage growth in communication skills, creativity, and confidence. We play, we sing, we perform, and we grow.


Happy Parents and Students!

Father of 7 year old
“Our son’s piano teacher happened to be the last person in our house right before we started social distancing, and as she left we were sad that he probably wouldn’t be able to keep learning. But the combination of FaceTime and some extra custom material she prepared has made virtual lessons surprisingly effective and fun. And since we are both always home we now get to listen in!”
Mother of 5 year old
“We can't go outside much during this difficult time so she practices more and loves the online piano lessons. We're so happy and proud of her progress!”
Mother of 5 year old
"Finding EchoKids has definitely been a stroke of luck for us, especially in these times of lockdown. It was easy to schedule, find a tutor who is great at what she does and is also extremely patient with a restless 5yr old. We highly recommend them to any parents who want their children to start on their musical journey."
Mother of 6 Year Old
"Even online EchoKids has been an engaging, creative, structured experience for my daughter. I appreciated the instructors suggestion to divide our lesson into two shorter lessons. That helped with providing more continuity of contact. It seems like my daughter has progressed much more than even the in-person lessons."
Father of 6 Year Old
"EchoKids has found fun and creative ways to incorporate our son’s interests in learning about music and the piano."
Father of 3 Year Old
"Our mentor has been absolutely wonderful. It's really nice to see my son learning new musical skills every week and also learning to sit still and listen to Joyce's instructions.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is EchoKids?

We believe music is the most important tool in a child's development. That's why we gather passionate, qualified collegiate level mentors to provide the most affordable and engaging private music lessons. More than 90% of kids who begin private music lessons quit within their first 2 years because the teacher is a much older expert, making the class boring for kids.​

So we took a Buddhist teaching, Shoshin (the beginner's mind), and related it to music lessons. Having collegiate students as mentors creates a relaxed, welcoming community for all while teaching in the most efficient way. We teach music as vegetables and have students PLAY their instrument and create incentives to complete tasks such as stickers, toys, and other simple rewards.

We strongly believe music learning is for all, and nobody should be discouraged from entering something so powerful and personal for any reason. Music creates an inclusive community, as music is the universal language.

Do you offer afree trial lesson?

What kind of lessons do you offer?

We offer private music lessons (30 minute or 60 minute lessons) for the following instruments: Bass, Clarinet, Drum Set, Flute,Guitar, Oboe, Piano, Saxophone, Trombone, Trumpet, Violin, and Voice. Each lesson follows a road map of what should be covered within 6 months, designed by students from the Music Education department from Berklee College of Music. In order to be certain each student grows as a musician, we provide this basic program for mentors to follow; keeping the parents, the students, and the mentors on track of what each lesson should cover.

Are there any age restrictions?

No - our focused age group is 0-18 years old, but we welcome all ages as long as the learning age is under 3 years on an instrument.
