facility currently teaches in excess of 400 students every week and
we cater to all students, no matter the age, whether your musical aspirations

for relaxation and fun we can help you! We strive
to bring out the very best in all our students and offer many fun opportunities
throughout the school year for us to all get together and make some music in a
relaxed environment. We also host a mid year concert in June and end of year
