Online Lessons with Zoom 

As we follow the Staunton City Schools with regards to closings, we are offering online lessons at this time, and a few teachers are offering one-on-one lessons in person with masks, or outside weather permitting. For more information and to get signed up, email Molly at makemusicmaker@gmail.com


At Queen City Music Studios, we seek to stimulate the next generation of creatively-empowered critical thinkers and provide educational support to musicians of all ages and skill levels.




Queen City Music Studios is located in the heart of downtown Staunton, VA at 16 W. Beverley St, on the second floor above Warehouse Miniatures. The entrance is the arched-top wooden door. Take the stairs up to the first landing and make a right into the foyer that we share with the Staunton Yoga Co-op. Our door is on the right.
