The Music Connection is family owned and operated and is dedicated to teaching students the foundation of music that will last a lifetime. Our philosophy is that music should be fun so our program is tailored to teach each age group through an environment that is easy and fun to learn in. Our classes are semi-private meaning that the student gets one on one instruction with the teacher and will be introduced to theory in a group aspect. This creates an independence in each student to learn for themselves instead of using their teacher as a crutch. We believe that music should be a joy to learn instead of a chore that is dreaded. Let us help you discover the joy of music.
