Blue Balloon offers in-home private and small group music lessons for kids and adults in NYC.
Students learn to play an instrument through writing their own songs.
Anyone can be a songwriter! Music lessons are much more effective and fun when students are given the chance to express themselves creatively. That's why so many of our students learn how to play an instrument through writing their own songs. While most of our students learn through songwriting, our teachers can also design a curriculum around your musical tastes. Our extremely personalized lessons will be the highlight of your child's week!
Ages 3-9 Students at Blue Balloon Songwriting for Small People learn to play an instrument through writing, singing, playing, and even recording their own compositions.
Ages 10-18 Students are part of our Pitch & Propeller division. Some students focus on learning to play an instrument through writing their own songs, while others learn to play songs they know and love.
Adults Learn to play an instrument either by learning the fundamentals of songwriting or by learning how to play your favorite songs.
Our founder, Rachel Lipson, is an accomplished teacher, performer, and songwriter. She will personally use her musical matchmaking skills and educational expertise to match your child with one of our 35+ incredible teachers to ensure that your child’s lesson is their favorite part of the week!
