Naptown Sings…and Plays!

We have one main goal: to make music fun and inspiring for people of all ages, abilities and financial situations. Music lessons often get a bad rap for being boring, stuffy, and sometimes uninspiring. 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.

Not Your Average Music School

Quality

Fun does NOT sacrifice quality. We engage our students in high-quality music education programs that help students grow both individually and technically, and with confidence.

Community

Annapolis is a musical community with many musical wants and needs. At Naptown Sings!… and Plays! we listen to the community and create classes and programs accordingly. Additionally, we work with numerous organizations to bring scholarship programs to students who cannot otherwise afford music lessons and classes.

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.

In the spotlight for Spotlight Saturday is Sean Pietras!! 🎸

Sean is a passionate and confident guitar teacher, vocal coach, and singer/songwriter. These are two qualities that go a long way when instilling musical values in students. When asked what teaching means to him, Sean replied “Having the opportunity to share my gifts and enrich the lives of others, has become the most fulfilling element of my life.” Sean’s love for the performing arts has been evident since his first lead role onstage as a fifth grader. Participating actively in his school’s orchestra and choirs, it was at the age of 12 that his true love was realized, when he received his first guitar… After years of rigorous study, dedicated practice, and hundreds of stages, Sean began sharing his unique style as a guitar instructor and vocal coach at age 27.

He never looked back. Some of his past students have gone on to attend the Peabody Conservatory, and Berklee College Music; as well as record and produce their own original music. We brought Sean on to the Naptown Sings and Plays! team not only to teach guitar and ukulele, but to guide students interested in writing songs. Sean is out there gigging, and sharing his own songs with the world on the regular. He has shared the studio and stage with a ton of great acts. From playing BB King’s Blues Lounge in Nashville with Marcell and the Truth, to solo appearances at SXSW in Austin; his music has allowed for some very special experiences. His real-world experience, paired with his passion for teaching, is a perfect combo for our budding singer-songwriters of all ages, here at the studio. You’ll see for yourselves after just one lesson.

Auggie was definitely the wild child in Musikgarten today. 😆

But it was fun being a parent instead of the teacher, watching Mr. Freddy do his thing! -Mrs. Sophia
