The Firehouse CAC offers music lessons in the following areas of music production:
  • Acoustic and electric guitar
  • Bass
  • Drums
  • Keyboard
  • Recording/engineering
  • Songwriting
Firehouse Community Arts Center believes that a person’s first experience learning music should be relatable, relevant, and comprehensively geared toward developing the skills to make music. Through private instruction, we focus on learning through the music that excites and inspires each individual. Ultimately, we seek to bring students with similar passions together to create in an environment that showcases the full range of opportunities that music can afford. Students are paired with FCAC Teaching Artists who teach the basics of how to play an instrument with a focus on the students’ unique interests and needs.

In addition to offering private lessons, FCAC is committed to serving as a community center for the Avondale neighborhood and surrounding areas. The facility is open after school and is staffed and welcoming to students and community members.
