"Music Makes a Difference"

The Pied Piper Music School was established in 1988, and currently enrolls over 200 students of all ages.  We offer group music classes for beginners from age 4 to 8, and private lessons on piano, keyboard, flute, music theory and composition for all ages and levels, beginning through advanced.


We are proud to offer the HARMONY ROAD MUSIC COURSE, a nationally recognized music instruction program, with participating schools located throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia.



Numerous studies indicate that parental attitude, support and involvement are important factors in a child's ability to successfully learn to play and enjoy music.  Our classes are designed to assist you in giving your child the best support possible for his or her musical endeavors.  Like any skill, interest  counts far more than talent.  With the right support from you, playing music will become a natural part of your child's life.
