At the Imperfect Music Studio, students learn, explore, and create, while discovering that music is a vehicle for expression, community, and joy. 



With a strong emphasis on fundamentals and musicianship, Annaka Helps her students to foster a sense of love for music while developing musical literacy.
Instrumental music lessons typically include:
  • Music Theory
  • Aural Skills
  • Singing
  • Sight reading
  • Technique exercises
  • Performance Opportunities


First and foremost, by enrolling in the Imperfect Music Studio you are taking music lessons, with the goal to develop musicianship, learning to play an instrument is just the channel for that musicianship.

Annaka teaches the following instruments:

In addition, Annaka also teaches private music theory lessons.


Lessons are tailored to the individual student's interests and goals. When starting music lessons, and annually in the fall, each student needs to submit a completed student information form, which helps me keep current with the student's interests, experiences, and goals.

I then discuss with the parent or the student a plan to work towards these goals and incorporate their interests into the music lessons.
