Award-winning School of Music. If you're looking for music lessons in Northeast Ohio, then you have come to the right place. Since 2004, The School of Music has taught over 4,000 music students from preschool through adult. Some have won scholarships for college, others started a career in music, but most importantly they have discovered the love, creativity, beauty, and wonder that only music can inspire.
We Teach Piano, Guitar, Singing, Violin, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Drums, Ukulele, Trumpet, Brass, and More. With a highly qualified faculty of over 35 teachers with bachelors, masters, and doctorate degrees, we offer music lessons for all instruments and voice.

All Ages and Skill Levels. From preschool to adults, we teach beginners, intermediate, and advanced levels making learning both fun and rewarding.
Saving Time for Family and Friends. We have music lessons at a variety of times so families can book lessons for different children at the same time to save you hours of driving and waiting time. With 3 locations to choose from, we are just minutes away.
Catering to the Individual Needs of Students. Our teachers are friendly and work with each student (or parent) to create a lesson plan that fits their unique needs and favorite music. They understand the needs of new students as well as advanced and use methods to adapt to their way of learning.
Rewards! We provide these to students for a job well done and reaching milestones.
One-on-one Lessons. Students have the undivided attention of their teacher in order to make their best progress.
Outdoor Recitals and Other Performing Opportunities. When the weather is beautiful, we make music outside with our fun outdoor recitals. We offer indoor recitals as well. These are enjoyable low pressure events that students can participate in if they wish.

How to Start Right and Avoid Future Struggles
The answer is to begin with the right Music Foundation. Over 85% of music students who come to us are struggling, and often not enjoying music. Then old habits have to be replaced with new ones so that they can get on track.
Like a house, if there are cracks in the foundation, problems will likely show in the future. We ensure every student receives what they need from the start so they can improve faster and have fun making music for years to come. Learn in 2 years what others take to learn in 3 or not at all.
International Standards that Produce Results and Accelerated Progress
Our students do well because our Music Foundation for instruction comes from some of the most prestigious universities and conservatories of music in the world along with our successful teaching system. Our experience has been that without this approach, students often have difficulties, and our goal is to spare them of this. At the School of Music, each student receives this instruction in a fun environment, learning at his or her own pace.
Learning music requires a good teacher-student relationship. Our teachers are selected for the gift of working well with children, being a good role model, and understanding how they learn. This, too, helps give them the best experience they can have in learning music.
With multiple locations, our goal is to bring high quality music programs to your neighborhood. Most of our families come from local suburbs including Avon, Avon Lake, Westlake, Bay Village, Rocky River, North Ridgeville, Sheffield, North Olmsted, and more. Visit us at a location nearest you.
