The concept of Music Annex LA is simple: we make many of the world's greatest musicians accessible to you for full-day classes that inform and inspire. And we do it at an affordable price.

Some of the world's greatest musicians live in Los Angeles or perform here regularly. This includes players in jazz, rock, metal, r&b, and more. Many of these players love to teach and interact in a classroom setting! Music Annex LA is well-connected to these musicians and we work with them to create classes you will love.

Classes are held at the incredible Phantom Recordings studio. Owned by legendary drummer Simon Phillips, the studio is conveniently located in Sherman Oaks on Van Nuys Blvd. just north of the 101 freeway.

In addition to drums, guitar, bass, keyboards, and vocal classes, Music Annex LA will be scheduling music and sound production/engineering classes wih world-class people. Join our mailing list and social media for announcements about programming.

Music Annex LA is owned by Orkin Marketing Consultants. OMC manages business and marketing for several top artists, and also owns and operates the annual Drum Fantasy Camp in Chicago.
