Inspire Music was founded in 2006 when vocal instructor Victor Cervantes rented out a small studio on Vicente Street in San Francisco’s Outer Sunset neighborhood.  Starting from a small group of Victor’s students, Inspire Music steadily outgrew its original Vicente location and moved to its current site on Taraval Street in 2010.

Today, Inspire teaches an average of 700 private lessons a week to a diverse clientele of all ages and musical backgrounds.  While we still hold onto our vocal roots, we have expanded to teaching a variety of instruments including piano, guitar, strings, winds, and drums.  We also offer ensemble classes such as our ever popular “Hip Kids” and “Voices” choirs.  With over 25 instructors on our staff we are sure to have a teacher who can match your musical needs.

In addition to private and group lessons, Inspire Music provides rentals for a variety of musical instruments!  In fact, we provide over 500 instruments for students of the SFUSD every year with the lowest monthly rates in the city.  Do you own an instrument that needs a little help sounding it’s best?  Drop it off at our store and our in house repair technician can provide a free estimate!  Want to learn to how to take care of your violin, trumpet, clarinet, or flute?  Inspire Music provides video lessons on proper instrument maintenance to make sure you get the most out of your playing.

LetteR FROM Victor

A cornerstone of Inspire Music has always been our desire to provide our students with a positive learning experience, while working with our families to accommodate scheduling needs and facilitate music being a part of our students’ lives.


During this time of uncertainty, we want to take as many precautions as possible while striving to maintain a sense of normalcy. We are making video lessons available through the ZOOM Video Conferencing platform for students who would like to take lessons remotely for the duration of this event.


We ask students and families that would like to use this service to contact the front desk for further information. Our online lessons would take place at the regularly scheduled weekly day and time, via the ZOOM Video Conferencing platform. We will be available to assist our customers in implementing the ZOOM platform, and believe that this will be an easy, accessible solution.


Please feel free to reach out to our administrative staff should you have any questions. We would like to thank you in advance for your continued support of Inspire Music and our educators during this challenging time.


Stay healthy and keep practicing!


Kind Regards,

Victor Cervantes
