Award-winning School of Music.  If you're looking for music lessons in Avon, Avon Lake, Westlake, Bay Village, Rocky River, North Ridgeville and more, then you have come to the right place.  Since 2004, The School of Music has provided music lessons to over 3,500 students from preschool through adult.  Some students 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.

Convenient Scheduling.  We have music lessons at a variety of times so that families can book lessons for different children at the same time to save you hours of driving and waiting time.  We offer lessons in piano, guitar, voice, violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute, clarinet, saxophone, drums, ukulele, trumpet, all other brass instruments, and more.  With 4 locations to choose from, we are only minutes away.

Highly Qualified Faculty Catering to Needs of Students.  Our music teachers have university degrees specializing in their instrument or voice, some with awards in international competitions.  They are very experienced in understanding the needs of new students as well as advanced. We also offer regular low pressure recitals that students can perform in if they wish.

Directed by Professional Board of Musicians.  To ensure proper learning, the School of Music is not run by one individual.  We believe, for example, a guitarist may be an excellent teacher but this specialty would not qualify him/her to oversee the proper learning of other instruments such as piano, violin, flute, voice, trumpet, drums, etc.  Since 2004, the school has been run by a board of professional musicians to ensure the quality of teaching of each instrument so students progress well and enjoy learning.

Public School Recommended.  “I highly recommend The School of Music's outstanding staff..." - Director Doug Day, Bay Village (more testimonials)

Teaching Philosophy.  Our approach is a blend of international standards and our highly successful teaching system to ensure students have the Foundation they need to enjoy music for a lifetime.

Convenient Make-up Lessons.  Offered at times convenient for you, these are not a group class at a set time with a different teacher for the same fee as your normal lessons.  All make-up lessons are private one-on-one lessons with your teacher.

Private or Group Lessons.  Have a friend you want to study with?  We offer small group lessons for friends and family members.

Regular Recitals.  Optional low-pressure opportunities for performing and sharing your music.

All-day Personal Assistance.  From 9 am until 8 pm, weekdays, 9 am until 3 pm, Saturdays, we have staff ready to help with any questions.  Call today at (440) 934-9988.

How to Start Right and Avoid Future Struggles

The answer is to begin with the right Foundation.  Over 90% 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.

What's the solution?  The right instruction.  If there are cracks in the foundation of a house, 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 4 or not at all.

International Standards that Produce Results and Accelerated Progress 

Our students do well because our Foundation for music 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.

Personality Match

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, Westlake, Bay Village, North Olmsted, Sheffield, Rocky River, and more.  Visit us at a location nearest you.  Call to register at (440) 934-9988.
