Guitars for Rent and Sale What other services do we offer? Instrument sales and rentals, from keyboards to violins to guitars and drum pads with sticks.
($20.00/mo. + $20.00 deposit)

Rentals are great for testing the waters before investing in your own.

We also offer piano tuning (Discounted for our students, of course!) If your piano hasn't been tuned in more than a year, call us! Playing on an out of tune piano will affect a student's developing ear.

Help your piano keep its value - Have it tuned annually!

Several students have received music scholarships...
Our latest, Edward Gallagher, received $16,000 for one full year of tuition at an engineering school.

As they progress in their studies they can advance into ensemble playing. This takes good concentration and dedication to fellow musicians. It provides enjoyment and entertainment as well as an excellent source for rhythm study.

Every lesson is video and audio recorded.

This provides security for our parents as well as enabling our master instructor to view each and every lesson and provide valuable feedback to our other instructors.
Our instructors are very skilled and work as a team so that they are interchangeable. This makes it easier for us to work around your busy schedules.

Proud Recital Participants What kind of events do we have? We have two annual recitals and they are fabulous! Students and instructors perform and are always wonderful.
