La Quinta Music Lessons

Violin, Piano, Guitar and Voice Lessons in the Coachella Valley

“Making music and inspiring talent.”




Brian and Lara Marriott


La Quinta Music Lessons” was created in 2016 when Brian and Lara Marriott relocated back to the desert where they met and married. Brian had a long career as a Music Director for organizations in the Seattle area, Salem Or., and the San Francisco Bay area. During this time Lara was a performer, piano and voice teacher, and songwriter. Brian and Lara gained experience as performing musicians and instructors, and now teach out of their home studio in La Quinta, Ca. They have a passion to help aspiring musicians grow in their musical journey. Whether it is preparing for a talent show, coming back to a long-lost love of music, or following a dream, Brian and Lara tailor their lesson plans to help each individual reach their goals.
