About Our Studio

Little Dell Music Studio was established in 2017 after professional musician and educator Charlotte Littlehales saw a need for a “music school” in the little-big village of Fallbrook. It’s been a long-time dream of Charlotte’s to run her own music school, with the goal of instilling the same love of music into students of all ages.
As a music school, Little Dell Music Studio aims to build musicianship, facility and a love of music while keeping lessons fun. We focus on contemporary styles (pop, rock, folk, jazz, blues, country, musical theatre).
