We offer private, one-on-one guitar lessons, vocal lessons, piano lessons, bass lessons, and cello lessons here at our facility in the Stonebridge section of McKinney, right in the heart of Adriatica. We also offer student recitals in our Event Center every 8 weeks at no additional charge.

Our faculty is made up of seasoned professional musicians that work in today’s music business. Our atmosphere and environment is one of encouragement and a commitment to excellence while understanding that making music and an inquisitive spirit is essential to creativity. Music is a powerful catalyst for personal growth. Discover your creative journey at the Guitar Sanctuary’s Performance Academy.


We have rolling admission so you can start anytime during the month. If a student enrolls after the beginning of the month, tuition for that month will be prorated at the rate of $40 per half-hour lesson or $70 per hour lesson. Tuition for first month will be collected at enrollment. Tuition
  • $160 for a 4-week month & $200 for a 5-week month
  • $280 for a 4-week month & $350 for a 5-week month
Tuition must be paid by pre-authorized debit or pre-authorized credit cards. Payment will be automatically drafted at the beginning of the month. We have a specific lesson time reserved for each student, thus payment must be made regardless of attendance. This includes illness, holidays, vacations, etc. (Exceptions New Year’s Day, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, & Christmas)


Upon enrollment, a lesson time will be assigned based on the instructors' time available. Since the teachers are contracted and paid per scheduled lesson, students are required to attend all scheduled lessons on time. Please be sure to choose a time that you can commit to on a regular basis. If the student is 10 minutes late, they will be considered absent and the teacher will not be expected to wait. If the teacher has to miss, a qualified sub chosen by the instructor will be provided. For student’s missed or cancelled lessons there are no refunds or credits. Students who cancelled a lesson due to an extenuating circumstance please consult your instructor for his/her individual makeup policy.

Discontinuation of Lessons

You may withdraw with a 30-day notice from the first of the month.
