Dedicated to providing the highest quality music instruction since 2004...

Award-winning School of Music.  If you're looking for music lessons in Northeast Ohio, then you have come to the right place.  Since being established in 2004, The School of Music has taught over 4,000 music students from preschool through adult.  Some have won scholarships for college, some started a career in music, but most importantly they have discovered the love, creativity, beauty, and wonder that only music can inspire.

Teaching Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Drums, Ukulele, Trumpet, Brass, and More.  With a large variety of instruments to choose from, students can learn the instrument or voice they desire.

University-trained Teachers.  We have a highly qualified faculty of over 35 teachers from the U.S.A. and other parts of the world with bachelors, masters, and other postgraduate degrees. They provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to enjoy music for a lifetime. Not everyone starts a career, but everyone receives all they need to pursue one if they like. Above all, the most important goal for everyone is to enjoy making music.

Prestigious Faculty Background.  Our faculty have received their education from the following prestigious colleges, universities, and conservatories of music:

Indiana University, Cleveland Institute of Music, Michigan State University, Oberlin College and Conservatory of Music, New England Conservatory of Music, University of Illinois, Boston University, University of Hartford, Capital University, Cleveland State University, Kent State University, National Conservatory of the National University of Colombia, Staatlichen Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Stuttgart (Germany), Morehead State University, Otterbein University, University of Mount Union, Temple University, Case Western University, Baldwin-Wallace University, University of Akron, Ohio State University, Shenyang Conservatory of Music, Hong Kong Baptist University.

Save Time with Our Matching Students and Teachers. Since 2004, with many teachers on staff and with your preferences, we match students with a highly qualified teacher that works best for a student's particular age, ability, personality, and interest.

All Ages and Skill Levels.  From preschool ages to adults, our learning approach provides the Foundation everyone needs to succeed whether at a beginning, intermediate, or advanced level, 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 adapt to their way of learning.  Parents are also welcome to attend lessons, especially for those with young children.

Rewards!  We provide these to students for a job well done and reaching milestones.  These rewards encourage our students but the most important reward is found in the joy of playing or singing music.

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 nice, we make music outside with our fun outdoor recitals.  We offer indoor recitals as well.  These are free, enjoyable low pressure events that students can participate in if they wish.  They provide motivational, tangible goals in addition to lessons.

Flexible One-on-one Make-up Lessons.  No Group Make-up Classes.  All make up lessons are private lessons with 100% attention and help from your teacher so you can continue making your best progress.*

In-Person or Virtual or Both.  Students can choose from in-person or virtual lessons or a combination.  Our remote program is developed with some preferring virtual over private.  Students can try one lesson in-person or virtually before committing to monthly lessons.

Theory and Group Music Classes.  Optional classes for additional learning with others.

Providing From the Start What Many Learn In College.  Even our young beginners are learning what students often only learn in college.  With our Foundation, students progress fast and enjoy music more.

Directed by Professional Board of Musicians.  To ensure proper learning, the School of Music is run by more than one individual.  Since 2004, the school has been run by a board of musicians to ensure the quality of teaching of each instrument so students progress at their best and enjoy music.

Morning Times for Home Schoolers.  For your convenience, we have morning times available for piano, violin, voice, guitar, and more (if preferred, we also have Christian teachers available).

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

*If a make-up lesson is needed, these are offered at flexible times for you.  They are not a group class of other instruments at a pre-set time with another teacher, which can impede progress.  Make-up lessons are private one-on-one lessons with your teacher.

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 surface 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 4, or not at all.

International Standards with our Successful Learning Method that Produces Results and Accelerated Progress 

Since 2004, 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 which no other school enjoys. Other studios imitate our approach but it is not the same. At our school, each student benefits from our approach 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, Avon Lake, Westlake, Bay Village, Rocky River, North Ridgeville, Sheffield, North Olmsted, and more.  Visit us at a location nearest you.  Call to register at (440) 934-9988.
