“In my time at Northwest School of Music, I received professional training from very qualified teachers. My musical ability grew exponentially while attending the school. Northwest School of Music is the school for any aspiring musician to attend.”

“First, I want to say how much my children enjoy learning and playing music because of their experience at Northwest School of Music. We have been with the school for over three years, and from day one Kathleen and her musical family have been accommodating and understanding of our busy family and schedule. They are […]

“We have had the most positive experience at Northwest School of Music. Brett’s teacher has not only taught him how to play the guitar, he has allowed him to explore and challenge himself while making it so much fun. It is incredible what my son, Brett has learned in 3 years! The school has also […]

“We love this place. My five-year-old who takes her piano lessons here, always enjoys going to the music school. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for good music school. Both the piano teachers that my daughter had are very good in what they do. The management is very professional, but […]

They have worked with us over the past two years in providing the best Customer Service possible.They have accommodated every request and have listened to our feedback. Our kids enjoy learning there.

“A wonderful nurturing space for children to learn and cultivate their love of music. My daughter went from being shy about performing in public to singing in front of an audience at recitals. This really helped boost her confidence in singing in front of others. Thank you for such a wonderful and caring staff.”


“Really wonderful teachers and staff!!! My children loved their terrific teachers. Kathleen was always smiling and caring about everyone. She was also highly professional and did everything to make us happy! We also appreciated the cozy waiting room with a variety of cold/hot drinks and tons of magazines. It was very sad to leave them […]


“A no-pressure environment. Great place for music lessons. My son has been in guitar classes since 2008, and didn’t miss a class (except for prior arrangements), which Kathleen is very helpful and accommodating with missed classes. Super friendly, professional staff! Highly recommend Northwest School of Music. Oh, and the hot tea in the lobby is […]

“Out two kids have taken lessons here for more than 3 years. The school is so well organized and we have always appreciated the communication they extend to all their students and parents. My daughter now has a love for piano that she did not have when she started. This is a fabulous school and […]

“Instructors are knowledgable and patient and the school is very well managed, with a wide range of disciplines. They are willing to adjust the material to keep you interested yet make sure you are continually progressing. The school always seems to be busy and that’s the best indicator that they are doing things right. The […]

“My son has taken percussion lessons at NW school of music for 3 years and has enjoyed every minute of it. His teacher, Paul, has been great. He’s patient with a 10/11 year old. He takes into account our goals — the most recent was getting my son into the percussion section at the middle […]

“We came to Northwest School of Music two years ago, after having a parent recommend them. I love that they offer so many different instruments and even voice lessons in this location. With several teachers to choose from for piano we signed up with Sarvar because he had an opening. We have absolutely loved having […]

“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!”

“I would highly recommend Northwest School of music for anyone interested in professional and quality music instruction.

“…I have not slowed down with music since ending my lessons at Northwest School of Music, and have continued to learn new things from all sorts of avenues…I know I’ve said this before, but thank you so much for all that you and your school has provided for me. I would most likely not be […]

“I have been taking piano lessons from Thomas at Northwest School of Music for almost 3 years now. I started as a complete beginner in my late 20s and simply chose the closest place I could find, which happened to be NW School of Music. I couldn’t be happier with my decision. Thomas is a […]

“We were blessed to have David Pencil as our piano teacher. He is a consummate professional and an exceptionally good teacher. To say that we were pleased with him would be an understatement. My daughter learned and progressed so much under his tutelage. Not one minute was wasted during his lessons. He will review the […]


“I admit I haven’t been a student here very long, but if anything changes, I’ll edit my review accordingly. Here’s what I have to say about the experience I’ve had: I have David Price as my teacher, and I am utterly grateful for his instruction. He is fantastic–always involved in every step of the lesson, […]
