Our 9 year old daughter has taken piano lessons from KMS since she was 5 years old. Her teacher is exceptional by challenging her skill level, offering plenty of coaching and encouragement, and expertly prepares her for every aspect of recitals and festivals.

Happy Piano Parent

I am an adult student at Knox Music Studios. My teacher could not be more perfect for my needs. She manages to balance just the right amount of high-bar-setting with patience to make me feel both encouraged and energized to practice so that I can reach my personal goal of re-learning the piano.

Pleased Adult Student

My children have been taking guitar, piano, and voice lessons from Knox Music Studios since 2009. Their knowledge of music theory and ability to play their instruments has continued to develop by leaps and bounds. Thank you, KMS, for instilling a love of music in my children!
