WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
" I lucked into this fabulous music opportunity when a friend invited my kids. Fast forward two years and we are ALL taking music lessons here. I've always wanted to learn piano, but who has the time? Waiting for my kids in their own lessons, I realized I now did have the time. They squeezed us all into the same day and time, and accommodates my work schedule. When a child in drums was desperate to quit, I sent them to chat with the front desk. The response was better than great - and that same child is now taking DJ lessons (that really have become piano, but since I didn't approve piano is much more exciting for them to sneak out in their way... Of course I'm thrilled!) My piano lessons are fabulous and all the instructors are equally awesome! I've been tapping my novice instructions on my steering wheel when caught in traffic every morning... And am surprised I'm finally doing what I never thought possible. A++++!!!!"
"Kids did a week long summer camp; music + art. They loved it and want to go back for more next year!"
"We LOVE Music Makers. My 6 year old daughter takes piano lessons weekly and has also gone to camp there. She is learning so much from the amazing Mrs. Shelley every week! The camps are wonderful. They get to learn three different instruments of their choice in small groups. All the teachers at camp were fantastic. They did a super cute performance for the parents on the last day of camp and we got to go to the different classrooms and see everything they learned that week. Definitely recommend Music Makers!"
"Music Makers Workshops is the ONLY camp and weekly lesson that my kids get excited about. The instructors are patient, knowledgeable and FUN! We always look forward to seeing the same instructors year after year and getting to know the new ones. As a parent, I am so pleased to see my children's enthusiasm for learning to play different instruments and watching them fall in love with music - thank you MMW!"
"My daughter has taken piano lessons at Music Maker Workshops since she was 4, and she is turning 13 this December. Mrs. B. and her family, as well as Jess have always EXCEEDED my EXPECTATIONS, and have been a crucial part of my daughter's musical life. Key points are them recommending teachers who motivate and stimulate my daughter vs. me having to NAG her to practicing. Mary is her current piano teacher and has EXCEEDED our expectations with teaching my daughter how to write in and improvise by adding melodies and harmonies to make the piece more difficult. Mary helps motivate, yet diversify my daughter by having a classical piece, jazz piece, and popular piece for flexibility. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Music Maker Workshops!"
