About Our Studio
Mode Music Studios began life as Erin Rubin Piano Studios. After four years, and with an ever-growing clientele and continuing community interest, we decided to move into a new, bigger space: creating more opportunity for young musicians to find their musical voice through piano, guitar, percussion, vocal, ukulele and woodwind instruction.

Our Teachers
All of the teachers at Mode Music Studios are working musicians getting paid to write, perform and record. Our teachers also have a passion for what they do. We feel fortunate to be able to pass that down to the younger generation and get them excited to play music in the same way we have been throughout our careers. All Mode teachers have passed a Washington State background check.

Our Locations
West Seattle Location
Located at the northern end of Delridge Way SW, right next to the Skylark Cafe.
Vashon Island Location
Located in the Vashon Village, next door to the Vashon Brewery.
We offer Virtual, Hybrid, and In-Person lessons to accommodate families during this time.

Now available in-person: Piano, Guitar, Bass, and Drums, and some group classes
Online only: Voice, Brass, and Woodwind

What to expect for In-Person sessions:
To ensure we have the space to safely socially distance, we will primarily only be opening our large studio spaces, and courses will have limited capacity.

Masks will be required to be worn at all times while on the property without exception. If you are not comfortable wearing a mask, we ask you to please continue with lessons virtually.

We will take temperatures upon entering the building to guarantee the safety and health of our staff and students.

Hand washing will be required at the beginning and end of each session and sterilization of shared materials. Lessons will run 25 minutes/55 minutes to accommodate these changes.

After dropping off students, families will be asked to wait in their vehicles to keep our lobbies safe and distanced during the lesson and pick up outside of our main studio door.

Mode Music Studios and Mode Music & Performing Arts (MMPA) instructors are eligible for the vaccine through Creative Advantage’s partnership with the Seattle Public Schools. All teachers will have been fully vaccinated before their voluntary return to in-studio instruction. More information about The Creative Advantage Program is available here.
