Our School of Music creates a positive environment where students discover their abilities as individual musicians and as members of a constructive, creative community. We believe that all children are musical and will enjoy a lifetime of making music if given a nurturing environment. Our faculty are selected for their ability to nurture their students' talent and abilities.

We Offer Music lessons and classes for all ages.  Recitals are scheduled throughout the year and although students are encouraged to perform, participation is not mandatory. All recitals are free and open to the public.
