Our Mission

Concert Music School was founded in 2007 with your child's music education and future in mind. We believe that music enables children to better understand the world as music reflects the world we live in. Music provides the children with a unique method of communicating their ideas and understanding. Music gives them a way to express themselves when they can't find the right words that convey their emotions. Music gives them a voice, a means of expression and a chance to be successful that they may not otherwise have.

It’s important that every student have access to quality music instruction. Every student must have the opportunity to create and perform as much as possible. Our school's mission is to provide this access and opportunity. Students enrolled in our school receive a great deal of attention from all of our staff. Concert Music School has nine private rooms and a recital hall, as well as a waiting area with free Wifi, a children’s homework tables, and more.
