Customer Testimonials

Not just a great place for lessons, but a super place for accessories. One time i casually mentioned a gauge of bass strings by a certain manufacturer i like, and since that visit, they always have a pack or two, and the mark up is pretty much non existent

This place is amazing! My 5yr old daughter loves her drum lessons!

Great teachers. My son has drums with wyatt in their paso studio, and all our experiences have been nothing but exceptional with all their teachers as well as management. We've also had our daughters in piano and voice. Great operation.

I've had 2 drum lessons with Wyatt and am having so much fun! He is super patient and obviously loves music and teaching - thanks Wyatt! See ya next week


How playing an instrument benefits your brain - Anita Collins

When you listen to music, multiple areas of your brain become engaged and active. But when you actually play an instrument, that activity becomes more like a full-body brain workout. What's going on? Anita Collins explains the fireworks that go off in musicians' brains when they play, and examines some of the long-term positive effects of this mental workout.
