At Naptown Sings…and Plays! our teachers are upbeat, keep it fun, and cater to the interests of the students, all while ensuring a high-quality music education for all. Located in the heart of Annapolis we strive to be a staple in the community where anyone can go to be musically enriched.

Music Programs for All Ages in Annapolis, MD

We are so happy to be able to offer music programs from birth through adulthood. Our Musikgarten: Family Music for 0-3 Year Olds, parent and me style class is a great way to instill music at the earliest age. As the little ones progress, we offer a Music Immersion class for 3-5 Year Olds, designed to teach musical skills before taking up an instrument. As students enter Elementary School, we offer leveled Glee Clubs, a Ukulele Class and Private Voice and Instrument Lessons, to nurture your child’s musical development in a more technical way, while inspiring each child through his or her interests. Glee Clubs and Lessons continue throughout Middle and High School to allow students to hone their musical proficiency. Private Lessons at the studio are available for students of any age. Yes, you can still pick up guitar at 70! Learning an instrument is great, but putting that instrument to use is equally important. At Naptown Sings and Plays! we have created a community of music through regular open mics, bi-yearly recitals, concerts at the end of each Glee Club session, Rock Band classes, regular gigs at the BEST Annapolis festivals, outreach to local schools and beyond. We are proud to be a one-stop musical resource for Annapolis music. Join us to see why the hype around us is so real!

Our daughter has been taking a small group lesson for three years and we can really tell the difference in her awareness of the songs she hears on the radio and whether or not they are a song that would work for her.

The Latest from Naptown Sings!

It’s National Jazz Appreciation Month! Today we are honoring John Coltrane! 🎷

John William Coltrane was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Working in the bebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes and was at the forefront of free jazz. He led at least fifty recording sessions and appeared on many albums by other musicians, including trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk. Over the course of his career, Coltrane's music took on an increasingly spiritual dimension. He remains one of the most influential saxophonists in music history. He received numerous posthumous awards, including a Pulitzer Prize in 2007, and was canonized by the African Orthodox Church.
