Find Your Groove
Groove House offers private music lessons designed to take your musicianship to the next level.
About Groove House
Husband and wife team Justin and Amie Nunez stand behind the curtain of Groove House, a business that provides private music education to all ages in Hattiesburg, MS and the surrounding areas. Groove House was born out of the idea that musical education absolutely needs to be rooted in strong theory and technique, regardless of your instrument; but it needs to be equally balanced with freedom to play any style. Justin states, “The driving force behind Groove House is the goal of creating musicians. Being a musician requires being creative, flexible, and skilled. With Groove House, we have created an environment where anyone can have fun learning to play music that they love.”

How much do lessons cost?
We have worked hard to make paying for your training as easy as possible. The Fall and Spring Semesters run for 16 weeks each (August-December and January-May). Each semester costs $540 total for a weekly 30 minute private lesson and at least 1 performance opportunity. The Summer Semester runs for 8 weeks (June-July) and costs $270 total for a weekly 30 minute private lesson and at least 1 performance opportunity. Payments can be made in full at the beginning of a semester, or students can sign up for quarterly auto drafts.
What if I start lessons in the middle of the semester? Will I still pay the same amount?
Here at Groove House, we will only charge you for the amount of lessons you are enrolled to take. If you start in the middle of the semester, your total price will be a prorated amount to fit how many lessons remain in the semester. For example, if you sign up and there are only 10 weeks left of the semester, your new semester total will be adjusted accordingly.
What if we have to miss a lesson?
No problem! We can request a video lesson from your instructor before the missed lesson. Your instructor will use your lesson time to create a personalized video and we will send it to you through YouTube! That way, you wont miss a beat.
What musical styles do you teach?
We teach a broad range of musical styles and focus lessons around each individual student’s desires and goals. Our instructors teach rock, jazz, blues, classical, pop, country, and anything in between!
Will I perform a recital?
We offer many different types of performance opportunities including in-house shows, gigs at local venues and markets, and our students are requested to play local events all throughout the year. Our biggest events are our showcases at the end of each semester. Performances are not required.
Do I need to own an instrument to take lessons?
Each student should absolutely have an instrument at home to practice on. We do not have any instruments for rent.
Do you teach adults?
Yes! We have a large number of adult students. Some of our adult students are trying an instrument for the first time, and some are long-time musicians just looking to improve their skills.
How Do the Quarterly Auto Payments Work?
If you do not want to pay for the semester in full, it’s really easy to sign up for a direct debit account with us! The semester total of $540 will be divided into 4 equal payments. “I don’t like giving out my card/bank account information! Can I make monthly payments without setting up a direct debit account?” Unfortunately, no. If you do not pay in full, you are required to put a card or checking account on file as an insurance to our instructors.
What if I want to take two instruments. Is the price double the semester amount?
If you wish to take guitar and voice, you will need to reserve two different time slots with two different instructors. This will create two semester charges of $540.
What instruments do you teach?
We offer piano/keys, voice, electric/acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, electric/upright bass, ukulele, and percussion.
What will I learn in my private lessons?
Whether you are a beginner or a long-time musician, Groove House instructors are prepared to take you to the next level. We teach music theory, ear training, and offer performance opportunities that will allow you to take your new skills to the stage. Each student’s lessons are 100% personalized to fit their individual needs and goals.
Can you help me with my school auditions?
Absolutely! Our students do exceptionally well through audition processes because they are accustomed to performing and receiving critiques. Auditions can be stressful and intimidating, we love coaching and preparing our students to shine their brightest!
How old does my child need to be to take lessons?
Every child is different, and a trial lesson will give both the instructor and parent an idea of whether or not the student is ready for private lessons. An ideal age to begin lessons would be around 6-7 years, however, we have successfully taught students as young as 4!
Why Groove House?
Groove House is committed to providing completely personalized private lessons that will help any student, regardless of age or skill level, reach their own goals. Students often get to collaborate with others on music projects, and we partner with local venues to provide real-life performance opportunities and gigs that cannot be found with any other music school in the area.
