Our History. Your Future.
Since 1995, our mission has been to inspire musicians through training, education and performance. We’ve challenged hundreds of musicians to question where they’ve come from and where they are headed. And as part of our unique musical lineage, we offer a method to guide musicians throughout their musical life.Learn More
Our philosophy is built upon a uniting belief that through training and mentorship, you can free your inner ear and create something new. The conduit of this uniting belief is that our philosophy is method-centric. We do not judge by means of style or aesthetic, but offer a proven set of methods that encourage an ultimate awareness of musical elements. These will guide you on your path to musical discovery forever.Learn More
Our faculty embody our philosophy in the method by which they engage their own music, colleagues and students as master teachers. They are representative of our unique lineage as American composers and offer a diversity of perspectives and approaches to gaining an ultimate awareness of musical factors. We aim for our approach to be welcoming, and we evaluate you for who you are and what you do.Learn More
