Music education has been a central theme since our inception.

Whether in classes or private lessons, our teachers make a real difference!

Our staff of over 45 teachers has been the focal point of our development as a leading music center in south Dayton. From pianists and guitarists with advanced degrees in music, to some of the area’s leading  professional orchestral and symphonic musicians, as well as professional performing and recording artists in a variety of genres and music therapy, our staff is simply the best around.  Get to know our teachers through their biographies on the right.
