A series of instrumental music videos for both teachers and students, aimed at giving beginning students the greatest possibility of being successful on their chosen instrument.  Teachers, you can shave years off of your own learning curve! You'll see the difference this makes for your students, not only by the great sound they create, but by the smiles on their faces!

Steps to Successful Practicing

Giving your students the tools to succeed!


From day one, give your students a PROVEN way to be successful on their instrument.  Watch their pride and confidence grow with their success, and watch your retention rates year over year soar!

Students to through each of these steps, staying on a given step until they are truly an expert. Then (and only then!) do they move on to the next step! Students learn the steps to successful practicing, rather than just playing over and over again.  This one sheet, done well, makes an ENORMOUS difference!

Music Philosophy For Your Parents


It's More Than Just Music!

Dear Parents

Learning to play an instrument or learning to sing is such a wonderful gift for your son or daughter. Additionally, we want you to know that there is more to what we are trying to do on behalf of your son or daughter, other than “just” learn to play an instrument or learn how to sing. It’s about helping your son or daughter learn about self-discipline and long-range planning, developing the patience and tenacity to work on musical selections for an extended period of time. It’s about helping them with goal setting skills, and setting a personal standard of performance that sets a very high bar…and then achieving or even surpassing that high standard. It’s about helping your son or daughter understand about team-work and dedication, and learning that good old-fashioned hard work reaps wonderful rewards. And it’s about building great friendships that often carry on years after they leave high school. Yes, we “teach music”. But we want you to know that what we teach your son or daughter “through” music are also lessons that are so very important; lessons that will build a certain strength of character in your son or daughter that will serve them well throughout their years in high school and beyond.
