A proven track record of excellence since 2013.

Visit our testimonial page to see what our students are saying. Every year, aspiring music teachers start their own studio, and a year or two later it’s closed. The Studio has a proven track record of offering quality music, piano, guitar, voice, woodwind, and brass lessons in Dayton, Ohio year round. Our full time mission is teaching the creative arts and have been trusted by over 1,000 families.

A comfortable parent’s lounge for our clients.

Instead of waiting in a music retail store showroom, our clients enjoy a spacious, professional parent’s lounge with comfortable chairs, Wi-Fi, magazines and water service. Or if you prefer you can sit in on their lesson anytime you like.

Free music recitals!

We are one of the only music schools in Dayton that offers free recitals.

Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital.

For our students these recitals are free and unlike many schools in Dayton we do not charge recital participation or admission fees.


All Your Music Needs

The Studio also sells music books. No matter what music you are looking for we have a well stocked music collection and can order anything else.

Early morning and lunch time lessons for home schoolers, retirees, college students and working professionals.
