We want to enrich people’s lives through music. We want our students to love learning and find passion in their playing. A big part of any teacher’s role is to excite and inspire you.
So we’ve put together a line-up of skilled, knowledgeable musicians who’ve also got their groove as teachers. It’s not a one size, fit all approach; we’ve assembled the best teachers we could find to teach each instrument, each course, each facet and each particular level.
