"It has been amazing to see my son tranformed through his discovery of the violin. Since starting at the School of Dance & Music, he has gained a deep sense of accomplishment and confidence."
"My 7-year-old son LIVES for his weekly electric guitar lesson! We have to ask him to stop practicing!"
"I love the School of Dance and Music! I have danced there for years and I always love my teachers. They are always willing to listen and are open to what the students have to say. I like that all the teachers are friends and are nice. The teachers and students works well together (we are a team) and when I am there I feel at home."
"My daughter has met lots of friends at the school and has a great time coming here. She loves the teachers and staff and looks forward to the fabulous dance & music recitals they put on every year. The school is very well run and very accommodating to stressed out parents with ever changing schedules."
