The Crescendo School of Music is proud to offer top quality music instruction to students of all ages and experience. Our highly motivated and accredited instructors teach all styles of music while educating our students with the necessary fundamentals and tools they will need to enjoy music for the rest of their lives. Our goal is simple; give every student a musical gift to cherish a lifetime. While most of our students will simply enjoy the benefits of music, some of our students have and will continue to go on to be much more; such as professional musicians, actors, school band and choir directors and even Crescendo School of Music instructors.

Our objective is to provide a total music resource for beginners, amateurs and advanced musicians. We have created a safe, family friendly environment where students can learn, perform, make new friends and have fun. Students learn with instructors who are currently practicing their art and have established respect and reputations in their fields. Our instructors are dedicated to teaching the skills necessary in music to nurture and inspire a lifelong enjoyment of music.

All private lessons are scheduled by our lesson coordinators who will carefully place the student with the proper instructor based on ability level, musical preference and availability. Sight reading, theory and technique are part of ALL instruction and recitals are scheduled twice per year in which all students are encouraged to participate.
