Why should my child study music at an early age?

An exposure to music early in life helps children develop social skills and build confidence. It also helps make neural connections in the brain to develop memory and foster creativity!

Why study at Market Street Music School rather than a private teacher at home?

Students have access to highly qualified faculty and exposure to students at all levels in many instruments.
Students have the opportunity to attend and perform at professional quality recitals.
Market Street Music School can schedule two or more family members at the same time to make lessons more convenient.
By having lessons at our school, there are no distractions (text messages, ringing phones, Facebook or sibling interruptions) so we can provide 100% individual attention to our students.

I am an adult – can I take lessons at your school?

Yes! Our adult program is designed to help adults start any instrument. Emphasis is placed on music for recreation and opportunities to perform or learn in a group setting as well. Did you know that music has many health benefits too? We also provide lesson times on weekends and evenings to accommodate your busy schedule.

How do you choose your teachers?

All of our teachers have vast experience in teaching and instrument specific university degrees. After a lengthy interview process and background/reference checks, we only hire those teachers who are caring, nurturing, and imaginative educators passionate about their teaching.
