If you have not had success with music lessons in the past, or might be intimidated by the prospect of learning a new skill, you will want to try taking lessons with us here at The Center on Central. Our teachers work with your learning style and utilize creative techniques to ensure successful musical experiences.

While acknowledging that there is a basic curriculum necessary for musical knowledge and growth, we make sure to provide literature and instruction that is age-appropriate. Students learn the instrument of their choice, but also have the option to use their theory and skills on xylophones, drums and other rhythm instruments we have in our studio. Many students learn chord progressions in a relatively short span of time, and are playing entire songs and even writing songs within a month.

We offer piano lessons to children starting at age 4 ½, guitar lessons beginning at age 7, voice lessons beginning at age 10 – and continuing into adulthood – and have instructors available for other instruments based on your inquiry and a brief telephone interview.

• Once logged in, you will be shown a page with your selected item for purchase. If this is the correct item, you may click on the blue “enroll” button.

(If this is not the correct item, you should be able to hit the “back” button on your browser to get back to the list of choices. If that does not work, you may navigate through the MindBody Inc. site using the tabs at the top of the page to guide you – or close that window and start again on this page. We are also available to help you during our regular business hours at 610-710-1487.)

• Once clicking the blue “enroll” button, you will be taken to the shopping cart, where again the item(s) you selected will be displayed. If an item appears that you did not wish to purchase (or appears twice), you may remove it by clicking on the gray circled “X” to the far right of the item

• Once you are satisfied that the correct items appear, you may either click on the “Continue Shopping” link to find more items for your shopping cart (such as other offerings or adding another family member’s selection to the shopping cart), or you may click on the blue “CHECK OUT” button.

NOTE: YOU MAY HAVE TO SCROLL DOWN A BIT ON THE SHOPPING CART PAGE TO SEE THE CONTINUE SHOPPING LINK AND CHECK OUT BUTTON!

• If you have any applied credit with The Center on Central, such as a gift card on file, those funds will be applied first (unless you choose otherwise in the radio button prompt). If you don’t have applied credit, this is the place where you will enter your credit card information. You have the option to store your credit card information securely on the MindBody, Inc. servers if you choose.

• Once you have completed entering your credit card information, click on the blue “PLACE ORDER” button (you may also wish to take note of our business policies at the bottom of this page). Do not navigate away from the window until your order is confirmed. You should also receive a confirmation email (you may receive 2 – one as a purchase receipt and one as a specific schedule enrollment confirmation).

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if something doesn’t seem right – we are working through this transition and appreciate your patience. We think once we all get used to the new software, it will provide you with a better registration experience!
