Enjoy an evening of music, see our students, and meet our teachers by attending the next open house recital.  

Our Philosophy -

to provide the best quality education to students by teaching music as an artistic practice.

Music as a Language
We believe that students should learn a music just like they learn language, math, or science. Learning music not only develops their patience but nurtures the ability to work on and improve at any subject.

Performance Centric
We believe that regular performance on stage greatly boosts confidence, motivation, self-realization, and personally rewards students.

We Emphasize

Communication
Just as we teach our students to communicate and share music, we connect with parents to keep them informed and part of the learning process

Creativity
Making music is inherently a creative process.  Students are encouraged to express their feelings through music in creative ways.

Passion
As musicians we are devoted to developing musical talent.  As Teachers we are devoted to developing children's interest in music.

Collaborative Learning
It takes a village of many teachers and parental involvement to develop a well rounded musician.  Our curriculum emphasizes and reflects this.
