Welcome to MUSIC AUTHORITY. We are excited to share our mission with all of you!
MUSIC AUTHORITY is dedicated to providing qualified music lessons that help children and adults develop a life-long appreciation for music and encourage them to succeed in all aspects of their lives
Children who take music lessons develop brain areas involved in language and reasoning. Our students learn to think creatively and solve problems by imagining various solutions.
Adult students at MUSIC AUTHORITY have the privilege to work with knowledgeable and patient instructors who understand the challenges that a student faces when starting his/her musical education as an adult. Our teachers’ goal is to find the unique way to convey material to any adult students in a comprehendible manner. MUSIC AUTHORITY teachers implement various teaching techniques in order to fit and enhance each student’s individual style of learning so that progress is spread in time but ultimately palpable.
