Dr. Samee Griffith
Owner and Instructor


Welcome to Star City Music Studios! Located in historic downtown Miamisburg, Ohio, we offer private voice and instrument lessons on all major instruments, including piano, guitar, clarinet, oboe, and trumpet. We also offer early childhood music classes for children ages birth to five, and group and academic enrichment classes for all ages. Beginning Fall 2017, we now offer instrument rental and purchase through our partnership with Kincaid’s Music.

At Star City Music Studios, our goal is to offer quality music instruction to the greater Miami Valley, including Centerville, Dayton, Farmersville, Franklin, Germantown, Miamisburg, Springboro, and West Carrollton. Whether you’re just beginning your musical journey or are looking to further refine your skills, you’ll find the teacher you’re looking for and the type of lesson that meets your needs right here.
