Comments from current corporate students:

“I was feeling very stressed at work. It was awesome to have this lesson today. I really enjoyed it and it was just what I needed. Afterward I literally bounced up the stairs back to my office, two at a time in excitement.”

What better way to inspire creativity than to offer private music classes for our employees to take time away from their desks to relax and use their brain in a totally different way! Our employees are thrilled to have this program for their work/life balance and continued personal development.”
