Lessons are billed on a calendar month basis and all students are enrolled month-to-month.
Our rooms are stocked with everything you need for lessons, including amps, full drum kits with pads, keyboards, pianos, and more. We have spent thousands of dollars on our studio for everything you need for music lessons!
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. We have recital opportunities twice every year & hold these locally so you don't have to travel far for a top-notch recital experience. Our recital locations have a grand piano, so piano students are not playing on just a keyboard.

"Ms. Khachatryan has been my daughter's music teacher for six years and my son's for a year. She has bestowed her wisdom and expertise upon my children. Through her disciplined method of teaching, my children have learned to not only play the piano, but have become fluent in the language of music. My daughter has flourished under her direction, passing the CM test with honors for 4 years and being chosen to attend CM Convention for 3 consecutive years. We have been so lucky and grateful for finding an amazing teacher and a mentor."
