Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is to provide high quality education at an affordable price. We strive to connect young, dedicated and aspiring students with skilled educators to foster and cultivate their education pursuits in an encouraging manner.

To reach this achievement, we offer free private music lessons to those that cannot afford them. The scholarship program has been in existence for 15 years, and has served over 250 students during this time. We wish for children to be productive, and through our music lessons we try to foster the discipline necessary for our students to succeed later in life. We would like music to be prevalent in the community and believe that by offering these lessons, we are doing our part to accomplish this.

Our capability in teaching youths powerful and beneficial skills in music and in science is certainly formidable with our carefully chosen and handpicked tutors and instructors. Each one is dedicated to the program and every single one of their students, not only facilitating the advancement of those who need the most help, but also furthering the instruction of those who are working at their potential to make their best better.

Instructors at this school have become members of the California Music Teachers Association, both a good organization for the teachers to be a part of and a very reputable way of evaluating students utilizing its Certificate Merit Test to test those up for the challenge. Most of our students receive excellent scores as a result of our dedicated training and a effective increase in both musicianship and morale. Also, our students are encouraged to join various music competitions for their invaluable experience and most end up winning with their musical knowledge and talent cultivated by this institute. Many of our students also message us here from extremely respected and esteemed schools with solid support, such as Harvard and Yale.
