Customer Testimonials

Much recommend the place for kids!
Great teachers , highly recommend Mr. Andrew Wygant for Guitar , Very friendly and patient to kids !!!!! CSM is great place and appreciate the timely responses for any questions and informing schedule changes.


Our experience with the Cincinnati School of Music has been wonderful. Staff are extremely courteous and friendly, and communication regarding any updates/changes is very consistent and timely. My son's drum instructor, Doug, is superior: a very talented and skilled instructor with patience and a gift for meeting students exactly where they are in their skills and understanding. My son is pursuing a different instrument in his school band so we must discontinue these lessons soon, but my son delayed this decision solely because he likes these lessons and this teacher so much. We highly recommend this music school and this instructor.


We have taken piano lessons through the Cincinnati School for the past 2 years. It is a great family oriented environment and flexible to meet our schedule. My daughter started with the summer music discovery camp and immediately became hooked on music. We then began piano shortly after and she has excelled. She has had great teachers all of which have been talented, funny, encouraging and patient. We have had Alison, Joe, Mrs. Peg and Jordan. All of them are wonderful!


We love Cincinnati School of music! The entire staff is wonderful! They are also flexible and make it easy to adjust lessons if you have a conflict. My 8 and 10 year old look forward to their weekly lessons even more than sport practices! Thank you Mi-Na, Nancy, and Allie!


I love it hear, staff are extremely nice, schedules are accommodating. The most important piece is my 8yr old loves the drums and is doing an AMAZING job reading music
