Pleasant Street Music Studio

Quality Music Lessons: Teaching students one note at a time

About Us

Pleasant Street Music Studio officially opened its doors in Manchester in 2012, offering private piano lessons. Founder and Director, Alexandra Kirby, had been teaching piano lessons and music classes across the North Shore since 2005, and wished to build a vibrant musical community. Since then, we have expanded our offerings to include a variety of instruments and classes, thanks to our team of experienced instructors. In 2018, we added a location in Beverly which has given us more room to make and share music! Today, students and faculty continue to enrich our community with their love of music through outreach, concerts, and the sheer joy of learning to play an instrument.

Check out our group class and ensemble offerings or contact us for more information about private lessons.
