We’ll offer you a new student only if we have one that is a good match for what you told us you want.

Music teachers love California Music Studios.

It’s a better way to find great students.


Teaching for California Music Studios has freed up so much of my brainspace to focus on what I really care about—music. It’s such a relief to leave the recruitment and the fee collection to someone else. The recitals have been so much fun for my students—instead of seeing only other pianists, they get to see…


California Music Studios makes it easy to balance my teaching with my other responsibilities. CMS sends me students and I am able to coordinate lesson days and times with them directly. The CMS office staff is always helpful and great to work with.
