Every lesson and class are led by instructors that we purposely call “mentors.” We take the responsibility of training the next generation seriously. Each of our mentors are trained and empowered to develop the student’s gifts and talents, but also to build trusted and reliable connections. We believe that if the students trust the environment and mentor, they will thrive and grow faster. You can meet our Music Mentors here!
