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.
