7. Free, all inclusive music recitals!
We are one of the only music schools in San Diego that offers free recitals with a grand piano in a first class professional recital venue and modern rock 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. Each June and December, our students have the option of performing in our recitals. Students are not required to perform, but many choose to. For our students and their families/fans these recitals are free and unlike many schools in San Diego County we do not charge recital participation or admission fees.

We are the only music school in San Diego County that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests.
