Rieman Music Lesson Center

Books, DVDs, and YouTube videos are all excellent educational resources. The one thing they can’t provide, however, is feedback. When you’re learning to play a musical instrument, a teacher can help keep you on track by monitoring your progress, offering feedback, and answering your questions. Working with someone who cares about your success helps you stay motivated and focused.

At Rieman Music, we have taken every precaution possible to ensure that you, the customer, is safe. We have revamped the studio space to include ventilation, Plexiglass room dividers, and have many large rooms where social distancing is possible. Also, we now offer online lessons for various instruments via Zoom!

Lessons are 30 minutes long and are the same time and day once each week. To get started, contact the location nearest you! Instrument choices vary by location. To find out what instruments are currently offered in our Des Moines and Urbandale locations, Click Here
