Do you hold any performances?

Music is made to be shared and there is no better feeling than taking a bow for a well-deserved performance. Whether you are playing at a formal recital or just sharing a favorite piece in our coffee shop, all musicians love applause! We also participate in community outreach and benefit concerts.

How can you encourage my child to practice?

We encourage our students with a ladder of accomplishments signified with an arm band and certificate, as well as regular performance opportunities and open mic nights in our coffee shop.
