Music School in Tampa – About Us

happy students at our music school in Tampa

Healthy and Hopeful Amidst COVID-19

An Innovative Approach to Education

It’s clear we’re all in uncharted territory right now. Everyone is trying to stay safe. We aren’t totally sure what each new day brings. We’re all probably a little bit scared.

However, we choose not to linger here.

Our mission in its simplest form is to make happy homes for our families. We are experts in education and of course in music!

But our existence so far has been face to face. So, how to we continue?

We’re Going Online!

We know music makes us all a little bit happier. And, we can be the key. Also, you know you’re going crazy in your house. Let’s reinvent some structure for our families. As always, our priority is convenience, so we’ve got 2 easy options.

First, you can take traditional music lessons in a non-traditional format via Skype, FaceTime, Google Duo and other formats. You’ll still meet one-on-one with a teacher tailored to your goals. And you can choose any day of the week with a wide array of time offerings. These are weekly lessons, usually lasting 30, 45 or 60 minutes.

Our newest option is a temporary replacement for traditional school. Most schools are now closed, so your children aren’t receiving a structured education. Also, you may be working from home. This combination can be frustrating. Now everyone’s routine is off on top of all that.

We are offering weekly courses when school would ordinarily be – Monday-Friday, 9am-12:45pm. Your student can take classes in that time frame that interest them. Each week the classes reset, so your child can choose new classes, and take the same class with new topics. Best of all, these are live classes. Multiple students with our expert teachers, engaging with each other scholastically and socially.

Where We Teach

Our Tampa Music School offers exclusively in-home music lessons throughout Hillsborough County.

Our highest density areas are first, South Tampa music lessons. This is where our owner, Laura first began teaching with a handful of students from Mitchell Elementary!

Now Laura lives in Seminole Heights, so our music lessons in the heights have grown tremendously to be our second largest services area.

In recent years, our music lessons in Fishhawk, Riverview and Brandon have soared to tie up our numbers in the Heights as well!

Additionally, we teach numerous music lessons in Carrollwood, Westchase, New Tampa, Wesley Chapel and Lutz. And if you are looking for some other area for Tampa music lessons, we’d love to expand to your neighborhood too.

We are the proudest music school in Tampa!

Since 2011, we have coached professional artists across the country, helped high school students get into prestigious universities such as New York University, Marymount Manhattan, Carnegie and more.  That’s why our students have words of praise. They all agree, we are hands down the top music school in Tampa.

But for the most part, our studio is kids and adults who love music and want to learn. We have everything from a 3 year old piano student to a 91 year old voice student and everything in between. And we LOVE to find fun opportunities for them to showcase their talent and passion for music!

Check out this video which shows some of the littlest students from our music school in Tampa having lots of fun singing and being interviewed on tv! They had the chance to go to Telemundo in Miami with their teachers and sing live on a nationally broadcasted Easter special!

Join us; fuel your passion for music, and be part of the best music school in Tampa!
