Welcome to Tucksedo Studio- a hybrid instructional Music Studio. We offer music lessons online in Zoom or in-person in our brick & mortar location in Salmon, Id. Our students choose which format works best for them or a combination of both.
Tucksedo Studio is owned and operated by husband and wife team Terre and Jennifer Tuck.
Hello, we are Terre and Jen. We met in 1991 and started playing music together. We were married in 1994 and have been teaching as a team ever since, opening our first studio in our home in North Idaho. Next we taught in Salmon, Idaho, and then in the Treasure Valley of Idaho. We had a successful studio in our home in Star for the past 16 years.
When our two musician sons grew up, we decided to move back to Salmon (Terre’s hometown) to teach in the beautiful mountains. We continue to teach many of our longstanding students virtually in Zoom, while teaching new students locally in Salmon.
We Teach Consistently-
Over the years, we have taught hundreds of music students and we love doing it. Last year, we taught over 2800 music lessons! Our music studio is designed with intention to promote a solid music foundation for today’s student. We especially love teaching students the skills to play with others. Covid 19 didn’t stop us from teaching. In 2020 we moved our entire studio of 75 students online in Zoom in a week without skipping a beat. We then reopened our in-person studio in Salmon. No one has been left behind that wants to learn music.
What We Do-
In a comfortable, resourceful environment, we partner with students and families to promote a lifelong relationship with music and creativity. We build musicians. As we are doing that, positive character traits and skills take shape. Learning an instrument naturally enhances creativity, perseverance, and fine motor skills. It also builds IQ, personal excellence, and even kindness… all amazing and important things!
But, above all these benefits…we have fun with music! We like sharing the joy of music with our students and encouraging them to share it with others! That’s why we not only develop solo skills, but also group playing confidence.
We believe in the power of genuine community in a mom and pop enterprise, and investing in the next generation.
Speaking of community- over the years, many lasting and beautiful friendships have grown from our studio. You can find many of our former students, playing in bands, writing and recording their own music, or playing for their church community. Some are teaching others. In whatever way they choose to enjoy their music- all of their lives are truly enriched. We love that we have been able to play a part in that.
We offer group instruction in piano, voice, guitar, bass, drums, ukulele, and garage band and limited private and semi-private openings.
Making and sharing music together in fellowship is one of our top priorities. We have two Big Recitals a year that are for the whole studio to come together and celebrate. Our recitals are multi-instrument, and we showcase many student group performers, and soloists.
We offer several in-house mini-recitals throughout the year in the form of studio class performances. These studio class jams are for students to mix and perform for other students. We love developing performance confidence!
Tucksedo Studio is fully decked out and ready to rock! We have multiple digital pianos, a baby grand piano, a large gathering drum, and classroom percussion. We have on-the wall monitors, drum sets, and a sound system.
We embrace the music of all eras and genres. Classical, Blues, Gospel, Country, Jazz, Broadway, Rock, Pop- we enjoy good music. We are deliberate in choosing great sounding music for students to play and sing that motivates.
Our students not only learn to play music well, but they understand the theory behind what they are doing. They learn to improvise, and are given the tools to create their own music. We would love to make music with you!
