Instructors

Always take lessons from a qualified teacher. Just because someone is able to play an instrument doesn't automatically qualify him or her to be a music teacher. It is very important to take music lessons from a teacher who has a formal, university training as well as professional performance experience. All of our instructors are University-trained and many have 20 + years of performance experience. They are all dedicated to providing the highest quality formal education on their instrument of specialty to students from age 5 to adult, and at all skill levels. All lessons follow a set curriculum that is based on the foundation of proper technique and music reading skills.

  • Each teacher uses customized instruction to inspire and encourage students to reach their full musical potential.
  • Instructors are hand selected through recommendations from the professional music community.
  • To ensure only the highest quality instruction available, instructors go through an extensive interview process including background checks.
