"To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan, and not quite enough time." - Leonard Bernstein


  • Children who study music have higher self-esteem and better success in school, in developing their mind and intelligence, in society, and in life.

  • For the adult beginner it is a timeless hobby that yields a lifetime of enrichment; a fun and exciting journey for students of all ages. It is never too late to learn the universal language of music.

  • Music is invaluable, shaping the musician’s abilities and character. It is a wonderful means of expression and release; physically, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually therapeutic.

  • Music speaks what words cannot and is the sound of emotion. Music is of eternity. “Why music lessons?” The real question to ask is: “Why not?”
