Can I rent a musical instrument from FSM?
Yes. Instrument rental is $20 (or less) per month.

Does FSM offer any discounts?
We offer many discounts to choose from for summer camp enrollment. We also give current students a reward when a friend enrolls.  There are random discounts available throughout the year.  Make sure to follow our social media pages for your chance at winning!

How often do I come for music classes?
If you’re serious about learing music, weekly classes are the best in order to gain momentum through your learning. Spacing your classes too far apart will lead to having to “RE-learn” much of the last lesson during your current class.

Can I pay for tuition by credit or debit cards?
Yes! Having your banking institution set up a bill pay for your monthly tuition will save you the card transaction fee. Each teacher is paid directly by their students, and sometimes are able to take a card, but mostly we like bill pay.

Does FSM have gift certificates available?
Yes, we do! Just ask Bonnie when you come in. Great gift idea!How do I get a FREE class?

Does Flagstaff School of Music require students to participate in recitals?
It is our goal to give students the skills to become ‘performance ready.’ We want to help people feel comfortable performing in front of others, whether that performance is on a stage or at someone’s home. Quarterly recitals will give students the opportunity to perform and showcase their knowledge in a casual atmosphere.

What instruments can I learn at FSM?
We are providing a quality musical education program including piano, drums, bass, guitar, mandolin, flute, trumpet, violin, clarinet ,viola, cello, ukulele, and vocal instruction as well.  (I guess it’s almost easier to think of what we do NOT teach.)

Are you offering group classes as well as private?
Yes! We occasionally have group guitar classes, as well as a few workshops.

What ages do you teach music lessons?
We believe each person is different.  Sometimes private classes can begin as early as five.

We will be offering a community group for families with kids’ up to age six, called Intro to Music, in January 2018.  This group will use a variety of resources within the music school, and its studios to explore the idea of music and which instrument your child may navigate towards as they grow.

How long has FSM been in business?
Flagstaff School of Music evolved in three years from teaching out of the house, to renting a small studio, to our current, and much larger location. Stop by for a visit in person, get the full tour, and register for your FREE class.

Are you locally owned/operated?
Yes, Terry & his wife Bonnie, have lived in Flagstaff since 1994. We have two great kids, a mascot named Crescendo and 3 cats: Sunee, Mr. Blue and Adonia.

We are blessed to add a son-in-law as of June 2013. He’ll be the newest addition to the FSM family as well, greeting you at the front desk, and taking care of tuition.  Although he has moved on to follow his passion in animal science, we get to see them almost daily.  They added to our family in Sept. 2016 with the birth of our first grand child.  We love stopping whatever it is we are doing to play with Moira Wonder Haviland!

Can I watch my child while he/she is in class?
Yes! Each studio has enough room for someone to observe in the room if desired. Otherwise you may observe through the studio viewing windows.

Will I get a discount for referring a friend?
Yes! Let Bonnie know when your referral joins, and she’ll make sure you get a great gift! Friends can get a discount to summer camp too.

Do the instructors teach from other books?
We may use other curriculum as well as our own material. Our goal is to make each class as individualized as much as possible, teaching you the songs you want to learn while keeping it FUN and fundamental. Often times we are teaching your kids the music YOU like.

Can I bring my other children to the music school while we wait?
Yes, the front room has plenty of seating, a few games for the kids, and Wi-Fi is available. You may leave your student and run those much needed errands too.

Does FSM have any social networking sites?
Yes! You can find us in Facebook, Yelp, Twitter, LinkedIn, Allignable & Local.com.

Bonnie is also found at community networking groups.  Lately she’s on the Board of Directors for two groups:

  1.  Northern Arizona Blues Alliance
  2. Flagstaff Independent Business Alliance
