Want to become a real musician? You've come to the right place!

The average length of musical study in the US is only 8 months. Students we refer to private, independent music teachers stay in lessons for almost 2 years, and students who perform in recitals stay in lessons over 4 years (6.5x the national average)!

How do we do it? We’re different! Unlike an online database where you just search and click, we personally refer you to the RIGHT teacher for your interests and personality. Trust us, the quick chat is definitely worth your time!

How do you know it works? We’ve been in business since 1987, have an A+ BBB rating, and have a 97% satisfaction rating with our students!
