The school was founded under the name Concert Music School with your child's music education and future in mind. The study of music has been demonstrated to significantly enhance intellectual and artistic development of a young person and to help them develop confidence and a positive outlook about who they are and what they can accomplish.
From September 2017, Concert Music School has changed its name to Huntington Beach School of Music.
We believe learning to sing or play an instrument should and can be fun. It’s very important that every student has access to high quality music instruction, also given the opportunity, encouragement, and supportive environment to perform regularly. Our school's mission is to provide this access, opportunity, and the environment where natural musical growth can be nurtured.
