A proven record of excellence
Every year, aspiring musicians start their own studios and a year or two later they close it, “change careers” or move away. Some independent teachers do not show up for their lessons and many enroll students at the wrong age just for “an extra income”. Others do not teach music notation or provide consistency at all. The worst is that parents are usually the victims, choosing the “nice guy that comes to our house” or “the lady that lives down the street” without being able to check their background, information and verify degrees and experience. We know music and music is what we do. Therefore, we know if a teacher knows how to teach notation or not, etc. Dedicated Music Teaching Staff.

A comfortable and spacious waiting room
Instead of waiting in a music retail store with no seats and feeling the pressure to purchase something, our families and students enjoy our spacious and professional waiting room with comfortable chairs. You can relax, work on your computer or even watch a lesson! A comfortable waiting room for parents and family members, Or if you prefer you can sit in on their lesson anytime you like (for private students).

Ideal Environment
Our facilities are designed to be the ideal learning environment. Rooms are large enough for you to sit in on lessons if you like. There are no pets, younger siblings, televisions, or other distractions in the lessons.

We offer complete musical instruction featuring ear training, note reading, theory, improvisation, and more. Private lessons are tailored to each student’s unique learning style and group activities provide real-life performing experience and social skill building.

Opportunities for performances & recitals
Recitals: Every May & December, our students perform in our recitals. We have so many students choosing to participate, that we have to rent a hotel conference room to host our recitals. Performance opportunities at each level of study, the level of confidence you get performing cannot be achieved anywhere else. Plus, preparing for a performance motivates students to work toward a goal. Also Competitions, Music Festivals and much more!

Two to three times a year we volunteer at Nursing Homes, giving our students an opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life using their music talent. With our “More Than Music” campaign we get the students involved in multiple community giveback organizations.
