What We Believe
The best way to learn music is with one-on-one, private instruction.
Each lesson individually tailored for the way the student learns best, taking into account age, experience, personality, and learning style.
We believe that a college education makes for a better teacher, as the instructor can draw not only musical pedagogy but also from other fields such as psychology and sociology.

WHAT DAYS AND TIMES WILL I BE TEACHING?
The school offers lessons six days a week from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm. You submit a list of days and times that you would like to teach. We will fill those over time. There is no minimum or maximum number of hours, and you can add extra time or days down the road. You must be consistently available for the days and hours you select.
ARE THERE BUSY AND SLOW TIMES?
We are a year round school with minimal summer withdrawals. This enables a more stable income year round. The majority of our students are grade school aged, so weekdays 3:00 pm to 7:00 P.M. are the prime lesson times, as well as Saturdays 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
