• Our approach •

Music can be a demanding endeavor. No matter your skill level, there is always more to learn. In this way, studying music and becoming proficient on an instrument will enrich your life, for your entire life. Music celebrates your joys, and offers solace through your darkest times.

But hey, it’s about the most fun thing out there, too. If you’re not having a good time, why do it? We aim to instruct our students to be the absolute best they can be, using pedagogy and techniques that have proven to yield the greatest success for hundreds of years. But we’re modern musicians, too. We adapt. We won’t limit you to one style, one approach, one perspective on music. We strive to instill in you the ability to create your own voice. We want you to be you, not a carbon copy of everyone else. We may get you into Bartok and Hendrix, but you’ll be the one taking their stuff to the next level.

And hey, the world will be a better place because of you.
