Our staff of music instructors believe music lessons should be fun, yet challenging. We offer styles and songs the student is interested in, while building a strong foundation of important fundamentals necessary for the musical education of each student. We believe the pace should be determined by the student and tailor lessons, whether learning for enjoyment or a career. Our hope is each student will learn for a lifetime of enjoyment!
