Greetings! Welcome to our studio’s homepage & to the wonderful & exciting world of music! We’re a small family-run music studio proudly serving Summit & Morristown communities. We’re passionate about bringing music into people’s lives – through teaching, performing & providing opportunities for individuals of various age & abilities to pursue their artistic dreams. Our teachers are competent, enthusiastic & experienced. Our lesson plans are based on methodologies in pedagogy & instrument proficiency developed by the world-renowned musicians & educators, practiced in the US, Europe & Russia, backed by years of experience. We offer opportunities for performance year-round, from the highly competitive regional competitions to friendly, low-pressure recitals for friends & family. We’re thrilled to have students as young as 3 years old (in our Kindermusik classes) as well as adult students, beginner to advanced to professionals who continue working on their trade with our Master teachers.

A Message from the Owner:

"To open a music studio was my childhood dream. There was something about spending countless hours on the marble benches of the old music conservatory where my Mother worked; about doing my math homework to the sounds of violin tuning & piano etudes; about family gatherings abundant in singing & playing a full orchestra of instruments – piano, violin, guitar, accordion. Early on, I knew that my life was going to have an extra dimension – that coveted access into the world of music. I started my formal music education at the age of 7 & went on to complete a rigorous curriculum in piano, solfeggio, music theory & history, performing in numerous recitals on a state & national level in the US & overseas. As of today, I have 15 + years of experience in music performance & education & am currently focused on teaching. I’m a passionate believer that the overall benefit of piano study is not even music itself. It is essential life skills acquired in the course of mastering the instrument such as ability to stay calm & focused under pressure; commitment, hard work, and perseverance in the accomplishment of long term goals; improved analytical, reasoning & communication skills; ability to provide & receive feedback; time management, freedom of expression & confidence. Music is a fun, cultural, creative way to develop fundamental life skills for a healthy, balanced & enriched future."
