The personal instruction you receive at 3rd Street is amazing. Jeff is able to take what would be an otherwise difficult task and transform it into a relaxing, pleasant undertaking. The feeling of community and belonging are unlike anything I have ever experienced.

3rd Street is a top-notch studio! Both beginners and experienced artists will receive great instruction to improve their skills, and the company is as good as it gets. This is truly a no-nonsense organization with reasonable pricing and people who are there because they genuinely love sharing their craft. The schedules are really flexible as well. Come give it a try or just stop by for a cup of coffee and chat about good music and art. You won’t regret it!
