Whatever your age or music interest, the El Dorado Music Studios have expanded to include lessons on piano, drums, guitar, recorder, violin, as well as voice training. On any given afternoon, while strolling through the Gallery El Dorado waiting for your order of sumptuous cuisine offered by Allez, Jennifer and Christian Masse's busy French take-out restaurant, one delights in the convergence of multiple musical strains coming from studios located at the back of the 147 year old building which opens onto the garden patio. Five instructors are busy Monday through Saturday in three studios located in Gallery El Dorado in the historic town of El Dorado. Each of the instructors can be contacted personally or through the gallery at 530-622-3593.
