At MMS, we infuse strong fundamentals (note reading, music theory, proper technique) with playing by ear, improvisation, and songwriting. The idea is that students have a solid backbone of understanding and execution AND can get creative with music from the very beginning. The end result is true musicianship and passion for playing! And we do this by pulling from the music that our students love and are inspired by. There are also many opportunities within our studio for performance, collaboration, and expansion.
Our 3 pillars are Passion, Performance, and Community. We allow students to play the music they are passionate about, we encourage them to try their hand at performing in one of our many SAFE environments throughout the year, and we have a wonderful community of students that support each other, collaborate together, and give back to the community by performing at local non-profit organizations in the city.
All of our instructors have trained with our founder and owner, Ciara McAllister, and use the MMS curriculum mentioned above, but also have their own unique style and expertise. Follow the links to check out their bios and get a feel for them: Lizzie, Miranda, Joe, Peter, & Brittany
We offer lessons for children ages 3 and up! and adults in piano, voice, piano/voice combo, songwriting, and music production.
