Connecting music students & teachers.

California Music Schools is dedicated to improving and facilitating the music education experience.

Students need great teachers. Teachers need great students.

California Music Schools connects aspiring musicians with talented music instructors that want to teach them.

We match students with teachers based on their mutual musical interests, skills & goals, since this results in a better and more rewarding learning experience.

Students benefit from the free match with local teachers that have been vetted – with both professional and personal background checks.

Teachers benefit by getting more students to teach, but also they retain their freedom. When a potential match is made by California Music Studios, we inform the teacher, who always get to choose the students they want to teach, as well as when, where and how they want to teach.


Local focus.
