Come to Starwish Music School and “Discover the Magic in Music”

Starwish Music School is located in the heart of historic Occoquan Virginia. We provide Virtual and socially distanced lessons for Guitar, Bass, Ukulele, Mandolin, Banjo, Percussion, and Piano. We provide the highest quality music lessons available in the region! We do this by providing high-quality chairs specifically designed for musicians which optimize comfort and proper playing posture. This leads to an overall much more pleasant experience than sitting in your conventional folding chair. The room is an open space full of sunlight that is well ventilated and kept very clean. Much better than your usually cramped studio room with no windows that are in most music stores. We also have individual music stands for each student with a music stand light also optimizing playing comfort and performance during the lessons. Not to mention fun decor that inspires creativity!
