  • My 9-year old son learned to play the piano here for the last few months and I couldn’t be happier. The teachers are very professional and knowledgeable, and the staffs are very kind. I recommend Green Brooms to anyone around Santa Monica who’s interested in learning music .

  • My kids take piano lessons here and they just blew me away at the winter recital. My son is perfecting Beethoven and my daughter is entertaining us with holiday songs! This is such a great place for learning how to play instruments (and to sing). They make learning fun while they help students to strive. The teachers are incredibly talented and knowledgeable and they are always accommodating and encouraging.

  • I’ve been taking guitar lessons with Rob Garland at GBMA since March (’13) and have found the entire experience to be wonderful. From their facilities to Rob’s teaching style, I can’t believe that there’s a better way to invest in music training whether you’re a kid being forced by your parents to learn an instrument to an adult (like myself) that just always wanted to learn guitar. I highly recommend them.
