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.

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.
