Welcome to Star City Music Studios! Located in historic downtown Miamisburg, Ohio, we are YOUR comprehensive music education center. We are the only certified Musikgarten Early Childhood Education studio in the area, which means that we can start students at birth (yes, really!), nurturing their natural curiosity and love of music. As your child grows and develops her musical skills, our professional artist-instructors offer vocal and instrumental lessons on most major instruments, and we offer instrument rental and purchase through our partnership with Kincaid’s Music. We also offer private lessons and academic enrichment classes for adult students of any age.

At Star City Music Studios, we believe that EVERYONE is inherently musical, and that your life is better with music as an integral part. Our students come from all over the 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. Use the menu at the top of this page to get started.
