Praise for Hix Brothers Music

  • I take trumpet lessons with Mr. Baldin. He knows so much and can teach you in anyway that works for you. I even got into the world class drum corps I was auditioning for with only two months of lessons!

  • My son takes Saxophone lessons at Imperial School Of Music and my daughter takes Violin and we couldn’t be more pleased with the instructors and the service at Imperial. My daughter qualified for Honor Orchestra at her middle school, and my son prepared and played a saxophone solo at the holiday concert that Imperial presented, and we were able to bring his grandfather who couldn’t have been more proud. We are so pleased with the progress for both of the children, and the owner, Mrs B is always friendly and accommodating – especially when helping with our crazy schedules and occasional conflicts. We have recommended Imperial to friends and will continue to do so.
