The Twelfth Fret School of Music

The Twelfth Fret offers one-on-one music lessons with qualified teachers, and we also host, many in our shop,  a series of events and small group workshops.     These workshops let you hear from great players how they’ve learned and how they approach music.

EVENTS    Click Here to Learn More!

The Twelfth Fret regularly hosts small musical events in our shop, after hours, featuring local and visiting artists, as well as demonstration tours by manufacturers.    Because these are in our shop, attendance is limited, and the price of entry usually gets you an equal-value gift card (redeemable during business hours).   It’s a lot of fun and a great deal!

Below are some of the events we’ve hosted.
