Overview

We’re so glad you’re here!

Our music lessons for young children are full of fun, interactive activities with iPads apps and traditional methods that not only help develop a strong musical foundation and build essential life skills, but offer a unique bonding experience for you and your child.

Discover for yourself why families love our innovative music lessons for kids.

YES! Music Matters!

Our curriculum is built on research that proves MUSIC MATTERS. Music affects virtually every aspect of development and when young children are consistently engaged by music during the “musical window” they benefit at many levels.

What about private lessons?


Do we believe in private lessons? You bet! But we know from experience that private lessons are most valuable for older kids who have the ability to concentrate in a one-to-one setting. Private teachers LOVE getting our graduates because our grads have a solid foundation in keyboard skills and music theory and typically excel quickly in their continued music education and when learning other instruments.The education and experiences a child has at our music program sets them up for success with private instruction.

George, was very patient, kind, and seem very knowledgeable. He seems to understand the pedagogy of teaching to kids and realize they all learn differently. I personally think he went above and beyond for my Son first class and for our first introduction. He offered a more modern approach method of teaching music and Piano to my son who so far seem more receptive in learning and practicing. Will se where that take us but I am very please so far.

George is a gifted teacher. He's patient, friendly, very knowledgable, and encouraging. You can see his love and passion for sharing his knowledge in piano. He's great with my daughters and I'd highly recommend him for any age or level.
