Meet The Owner
As a mother of five and music teacher with a master’s degree in music education and more than 40 years of experience teaching music, I understand what parents need to know about helping their children experience real success in music.
Since 2003, I have dedicated myself to offering an exceptional music lesson experience for students in West Michigan. What began as an early childhood music and piano studio is now the largest professional music school in the area and includes both the Academy of Music in Grand Rapids and Jenison Academy of Music. I’m most grateful for our fabulous teachers and hundreds of students in such a supportive community who trust us each week with their music education.
