What I / we help young people achieve
We've been running since 2005. Our longest retained student has been twelve years, and many have been coming for 10+ years. We have many great players who are benefiting from being in our Tribe with their tangible skills achieved on their instruments, as well as their emotional well being. We feel very strongly connected to the families we work with and they provide us great feedback on what ways to work with our students best.
We make it FUN, we make it EASY...we make YOU AWESOME!!

Our Training & Development
We believe in putting a candidate with the right character and skill set into an environment that will bring them, us and our students the most success.
All teachers are put through a series of video and document based training to learn our philosophy and systems.
We then give face to face training and questions on all of our tools, techniques and philosophy.
We then have them give trial lessons with both children and adults, getting further feedback and training until at the level needed to teach their students.
Teachers are further trained as their students develop and systems/policies change.
