Affordable Pricing and Convenience -- For about the same price your local studios are charging, WE COME TO YOU! You'll save gas money and you'll save lots of your valuable time. Instead of driving 15 minutes to a studio, waiting for 30 minutes or more, then driving 15 minutes home, you could be at home checking things off your to-do list or sipping a cup of coffee while your child has their music lessons and you won't spend a dime on gas!
And guess what? No registration fees!
We're Local and We're Small! You'll meet the owner at your recitals. When you call us, we know who you are! No annoying Customer or Account Numbers here! We know the nuances and uniqueness of the DFW area. Find out the areas we serve here.
Did you know Starlight was started and is operated by a Music Teacher-- Not an investment firm? Decades of teaching experience are behind everything we do!
The right teacher fit for YOU-- Because we are small, we get to know our teachers, their personalities and how they roll! That means that when you ask for a teacher with lots of patience, that's what you'll get! And if the teacher we match you with isn't quite the right fit, just let us know and we'll make it right.
We've got your instrument right here! We are known for our piano lessons, voice lessons, and guitar lessons. However we also offer lessons on strings, wind instruments, or percussion in some areas.
FREE LESSONS – We are the only in-home music lessons studio in the area offering an entire FREE MONTH OF LESSONS for each family you refer! That’s incredible! Refer 12 people each year and you could get a student’s lessons completely free. See details about our referral program here.
Our office is staffed by music teachers and parents of music students -- NOT SALES PEOPLE! We walk you through every step. Not sure of the right fit for your child? You'll get advice from people who are in your shoes and are knowledgeable about how to get the most out of lessons. Need a keyboard or guitar? We have an instrument buying guide for you and can point you in the direction of where to get a good beginner's instrument.
Lessons when YOU want them -- our teachers are available when you are. When you enroll, we'll ask you what your availability is for weekly lessons. We will place you with a teacher who can accommodate your schedule ... however non-traditional that might be!
The Cure to Practicing Troubles -- Having trouble getting your child (or yourself) to practice? Starlight has the cure! Chase your practice blues away with our Practice Pals program. You've never seen anything like it before, and your child will actually enjoy practice time! (Yes, that really IS possible!)
You haven't been to a music recital until you've been to a Starlight Recital!-- We hold a formal recital each spring, and a theme recital during the year. Starlight is known for our amazing recitals because we hold them in professional recital halls with real sound equipment and a baby grand piano or better. You'll get beautiful and professional programs to save as a keepsake. We've been doing this a long time, so we know how to prepare you or your child for the big day and positive experiences are the focus. Most of our shows are only 60 minutes long, so you'll walk away from the recital with a smile on your face, rather than a sore back!
Safe and Thoroughly Vetted Teachers – Your family’s safety is our number one concern. All of our teachers have 100% clear background checks completed by the nation's most trusted background check company, backgroundchecks.com. We do not work with any teacher who has any criminal background – regardless of the type or severity.
Additionally, our application process is very thorough, and consists of auditions, theory tests, thorough reference checks, and at least one interview (sometimes more). We don’t just look for good musicians; we look for musicians who have the heart of a teacher, and who show professional communication and a sense of urgency.
Give us a call or email today. Tell us what you are looking for, the student's personality and learning style. We'll fit you with an awesome teacher who is the right fit for you!
