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.  At our School, 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 of music instruction comes from some of the most prestigious universities and conservatories of music in the world. 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. Several skills of professional performers can be taught in the first one or two years of lessons, a critical time in the life of a student.  Starting on the right path is important for success so students are prepared to enjoy music for a lifetime.

Whether learning piano, voice, guitar, violin, etc., our teachers do not take a one-size-fits all approach. We have had students who have gone on to pursue careers in music, earn scholarships for college, but most importantly, they have discovered music's ability to stir their hearts, and have developed an appreciation for the love, creativity, beauty, and wonder that only music can inspire.

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.
