Why we are NOT your typical music school...

We Care About Our Students & Their Goals!

We are deeply committed to nurturing the musical aspirations and well-being of our students. Embracing diversity in learning styles, we avoid a 'one size fits all' approach. Our teaching philosophy (designed by our Founder, Lannie Battistini) and revolves around our 3-Pillar Teaching Approach: learner-centered instruction, project-based learning, and hands-on experiential learning approach. Tailored to individual needs, these approaches cultivate and amplify each learner's unique talents, empowering them to reach their fullest potential.

Our Music Instructors Elevate Expectations!

Our instructors are highly qualified professionals with extensive experience in music education. They hold completed degrees from renowned universities or boast equivalent years of instructive expertise. With well-rounded curriculums, they ensure every student harnesses their musical potential effectively. As experienced performers, they're dedicated to teaching performance techniques that maximize student growth. They provide the necessary tools for efficient learning, prioritizing both professionalism and enjoyment.

Our Students Shine!

Our students have numerous opportunities to showcase their talents with our recital programs, annual "Showtime" concert, and public stage performances throughout the year. These events provide our students with a goal to work towards and an opportunity to shine on stage at their own pace and discretion. We strongly believe in a performance-based approach that encourages confidence-building as students apply their learned skills in real-life situations.
