If you want to take your musical talent to the next level, you've come to the right place. We offer lessons in voice, piano, organ, guitar, flute, drums, bass, music theory, composition, and improvisation. Our friendly, highly qualified and experienced teachers are here to help.

Located in the Des Moines metro area, we are near West Des Moines, Waukee, Urbandale, Johnston, Grimes, Granger, Dallas Center, Clive, and Van Meter as well as other communities in the area.

Whether you just want to explore your innate musical gifts and have fun or you're preparing for an important audition, it's never too soon to start and never too late to begin experiencing the special joy only music can bring to you and your talented family members.

As you probably already know, many of us feel more complete only when we train to make music we enjoy. Often students like to participate in our recital experiences. As they develop, they sometimes decide to prepare for auditions, win level awards(for example, ABRSM, RCM), and even enter competitions or tackle the AP Music Theory Exam.

Whatever your musical goals, we do our best to make your experience with music a most rewarding part of your life.

Fun Lessons Plus Proven Results

Everyone wants to look forward to their weekly music lesson. That's why we encourage students to practice, but we are understanding of busy schedules and life's unforeseen circumstances. You will find us ready to encourage you to persist in your musical pursuits.

Developing musicians need highly qualified music instructors to take them to the next level. With Amberlight's teachers and adequate practice on the part of the student, progress is virtually assured. Our methods and choice of learning materials have proven over and over again to yield solid improvement. We have used many methods, including Suzuki. Rest assured, your curriculum will be designed especially for you.

Some of our more serious students enter grade level examinations in instruments or voice, theory and musicianship. One of the more internationally renowned curricula we have used is ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music). Higher levels of achievement are encouraged, but certainly not expected of everyone. We gladly step up or slow down the pace, depending on the ever changing needs of the student.

Virtually all students who study with us for any length of time develop musically, technically, spiritually, and intellectually. The happiness, confidence, focus, concentration, self discipline, mental development, and sense of mastery can lead to a more fulfilling life.

Experience You Can Count On

Our teachers are highly trained, qualified in their field and come from respected institutions such as Stanford University and San Francisco Conservatory of Music. They have extensive experience teaching students of all ages.
