We love teaching! Our teachers are all experienced performers and educators. All teachers have many years of teaching and performing experience, with most being graduates of, and having master/D.M.A. degrees, from prestigious institutions.
Many of our teachers have gone on performance tours of the US and Europe and have many years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and strive to bring out the best in every student, whether they are first-time learners or accomplished performers.
We currently have 20+ teachers on staff and we are growing every month. Below you will find bios for our staffs.
