Like The Drawing Lesson, The Music Lesson is set in an interior with a view through to another space. Above the door is a marble relief of the Greek god Apollo playing his lyre. The two women are practising a duet for guitar and voice under the direction of their music teacher. According to tradition, the painter himself served as the model for the teacher.
