We offer a wide range of lesson times, which makes our music studio ideal for school kids, home-schoolers, and busy adults. You can choose from morning, lunch time, afternoon or evening lessons. Lessons available as early at 9:00 a.m. and as late as 9:00 p.m.
8. Recitals and Concerts
Student music recitals are held throughout the year to encourage practice and performance techniques. Students are not required to perform, but most choose to. Recitals, concerts and tours require extra instruction, time, organization, preparation and rehearsal. Students never pay for these extras.

Our students work hard at their lessons and practicing, and so we reward students not only for their progress, but also for their time put into practicing.
