Benefits of becoming a Paper Moon Student. . .

  1. The most qualified instructors.
    Our teachers are all university-trained with tons of performing experience. Not only that, Paper Moon instructors are friendly, professional, and dedicated to learning about your music goals and helping you achieve them, while playing the style of music you want to learn. With multiple teachers per instrument, we are confident that we have the right teacher to meet your music lesson needs.
  2. Widest range of lesson times available - for kids to retirees and working professionals.
    Don't have a 9 to 5 job? Perfect! We teach from the mid-morning all the way through the evening, so if you're retired or have a day off during the week, we can accommodate your schedule! If you are a homeschool parent, retiree, college student or working professional who has a flexible schedule, take advantage of our morning and lunch time lesson spots.
  3. Excellence in learning since 2004.
    Paper Moon Music has stood the test of time, teaching hundreds and hundreds of students over the years. We have a proven track record of offering quality music, piano, guitar, ukulele, banjo, and bass lessons in San Diego year round. Our full time mission is teaching music lessons; visit our testimonial page to see what our students are saying - our stellar reviews and satisfied customers attest to our dedication to teaching music.
  4. A comfortable waiting lounge for students and parents.
    Relax while you wait for your child or warm-up for your lesson in our lobby/lounge with comfortable chairs, Wi-Fi, and magazines. We also provide large observation windows on every door so that you can watch your child's lesson while you wait. Or if you prefer you can sit in on their lesson anytime you like.
  5. Technologically advanced and fully-stocked music lesson rooms!
    Our rooms are stocked with everything you need for music lessons, including amps, stereos, smart phone/tablet connections and more. All you need to bring is your instrument (or we can even rent you an instrument if you don't yet have one). Feel free to "Bring Your Own Device" to your lesson in addition to your instrument!
  6. Recitals for performing experience.
    We offer bi-annual recitals for a low-pressure, non-mandatory opportunity to play in front of an audience and meet other like-minded music students.
  7. Month-to-month lessons.
    Paper Moon Music does not require semester minimums for lessons. Every student here is on a month-to-month basis. If you are ready to start, you have nothing to lose: we only want students who truly want to be here, so we will not commit you to a long-term contract.
  8. Our location.
    Located in beautiful Point Loma near the merge of Interstate 8 and Interstate 5, we are easily accessible from these freeways. With coffee shops and fine dining nearby, many of our students make a day of their music lessons and enjoy nearby Ocean Beach, Sunset Cliffs, go for a surf or swim, and enjoy an evening out. On Wednesdays you can shop the OB Farmers Market just minutes from the studio.

All Ages and All Levels Welcome!
