Natasha Mason: A great place for young and old to learn or improve in music. Staff are so helpful and patient and the pride they take in their students really shows.

Karen Branzoni-Farley:Great customer service and incredibly friendly staff and teachers.

Jodi McComb:  My daughter loves her piano lessons here. We started off with one teacher but sadly the teaching style did not work with my daughter's learning style. Wendy was able to help us find an instructor that fit my daughter's style a bit better. Now my daughter is wanting to learn the guitar, violin, and flute! No stopping this kid when you have such great teachers and an owner that cares.

Peter Meyer: A creative space to learn, play and collaborate with other musicians. I wish Wendy and Chris continued success with this business.

Pat Bradley-White: I can't recommend this music school highly enough. As an older adult returning to piano, I very much appreciate the openness to a blend of self and instructor directed learning.
