Join us to make music this spring!

Spring term runs January 3-May 29
For YouthFor Adults

A world-class community music school — and more!

Sure, we have exceptional faculty who can teach you or your child how to play violin, but we also believe in the value of all types of music, the inclusion of every student, and the power of community. 

Individual Lessons

We offer lessons on all instruments (except for bagpipes and organ) and voice for all ages.

Your Child’s Musical Journey

Our music lessons and classes grow with your kiddo from birth to… forever!

Make Music With Us

Dust off your trumpet, sing with friends, play with jazz musicians, join a choir, and more.

Music For the Young Ones

It’s proven: music education at any age provides numerous benefits — and it’s also tons of fun. We offer musical experiences for kids of all ages, even newborns! Just don’t blame us when you wake up to them practicing their violin early on Saturday morning.

Summer Camps and Classes for Kids

Summer should be all about fun in the sun, pool parties, and violin lessons. Slather up that sunscreen and see what musical hijinx we’re diving into this summer.

Music For Adults

Do you have a French horn gathering dust in your closet? Have you always felt drawn to the piano but have never tried a lesson? No matter your level of musical experience, you’re in the right place. Join a band, sing in a choir, or start those piano lessons today!
