Our Program

Paths to Success



Start your Musical Journey

Our Prelude programs provide the foundation for a lifetime of music making.  These weekly 30 minute group classes teach music basics like note names, rhythm and staff reading, and basic terms. Our curriculum sparks musical curiosity as students collaborate and explore their new musical world.  Classes are held in our Lenexa location.


Growing to Your Potential

After graduating from our Prelude program students transition into Crescendo.  These weekly one hour group lessons combine teamwork and personal growth.  Each class includes collaborative composition and improvisation activities and one on one instruction.  Students learn  to play in a variety of styles to allow them to develop their own musical identity, while strengthening their understanding of music theory and history.  Crescendo Lessons are held in our Lenexa Location.



Additional Lessons for Intensive Study

Students who wish to pursue a music career, complete exams,  or simply want to engage in intensive study are invited to add additional private lessons.  These lessons meet weekly for 45 or 60 minutes, and include advanced technique and repertoire training.  Fully dive into music study to see what you are capable of!
Lessons are held in our Overland Park location.
