Meet our instructors

“When I chose to learn bass, the teacher I was assigned was Matthew. We played together once a week for nearly two years; every time we met in person and every time we got on a skype call, I improved every time. ”

— Ian

“My 7 year old started her second year here playing piano. Kathleen, the owner, is great with answering any questions, concerns, scheduling requests you have, in a VERY timely manner. The studio is clean, on time, and very professional. The teachers really care!”
