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

Teaching All Instruments and Voice.  With a highly qualified faculty, we offer lessons in piano, guitar, voice, violin, viola, cello, bass, flute, clarinet, saxophone, drums, ukulele, trumpet, other brass instruments, and more.

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 4 locations to choose from, we are just minutes away.

Catering to the Individual Needs of Students.  Our teachers have university degrees specializing in their instrument or voice, some with awards in international competitions.  They understand the needs of new students as well as advanced and use methods to adapt to their way of learning.  Motivational rewards are also given for reaching goals.

Providing Private One-on-one Lessons.  Students have the undivided attention of their teacher in order to make their best progress.

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.

Performing Opportunities.  We offer regular low pressure recitals and performing opportunities that students can participate in if they wish.

Providing From the Start What Many Only Learn In College.  Even young beginners are learning what students often only learn when they go to college.  With our Foundation, students progress faster 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.

*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.  All 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 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 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.

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.
