…I give full credit to the expert, kid-friendly, and always age-appropriate instruction she receives. The best thing about this school is the number one ideal: that the kids enjoy playing music…
Karen B. A mother of a 8 year old daughter
…Willan is an extension of all the dedication put into teaching music from very early ages. We are absolutely positive that our two children are happier, more engaged and sensitive in part thanks to the time that they have spent taking lessons there.

I can’t express with words what an amazing experience this has been for my son. He absolutely loves the guitar class and teacher… my son’s teacher has always been beyond magnificent. I highly recommend this school for any family/children who might be exploring music classes. My son started when he was about 4 year old and now at 9 year old….
