What Instruments Do We Teach?
" I’m an adult who wanted to learn guitar, but didn’t know anything about music. Since I started lessons at Music on Magnolia, I’ve learned how to read sheet music, understand music theory, how to play in a band with other musicians, and last but not least, how to enjoy the musical journey. "
" Where to start?! Michael is both an amazingly talented musician, as well as an equally talented teacher. He is able to connect with students in a way that allows him to not only teach the material, but also foster a love of music within them. We're so grateful to have found him and for the growth we’ve witnessed in our son as a musician. "
" Music on Magnolia provides a safe, fun way for kids to explore music and instruments. The teachers meet kids where they are, giving lessons and assignments appropriate to the age and ability of the students. The lessons aren't limited to traditional classical instruction. The ‘recitals’ are actually shows at local venues. The kids team up to form bands and play pop/rock/country songs in a real music venue, for a real audience. My son loves it! "
" My 9 year old son has been with Music on Magnolia for over 3 years now, learning piano and drums. Not only is he learning how to read music, but he loves the process. Music on Magnolia knows how to inspire a child and maximize their potential. "
" Music on Magnolia is a vibe! The atmosphere Michael has created for his students with the magic of music is so welcoming. In just three short lessons, I watched my son build confidence as he overcame frustrations in learning something new because of the coaching and encouragement from instructors who are sharing their passion for music with the students. We look forward to watching our musician grow and continue working towards his big goals. "
" Our sons started Music On Magnolia three years ago. Our friends had recommended them, and with just the intro lesson, we were hooked. My youngest being on the Spectrum, I was a little apprehensive. But the boys hit it off with Michael and his staff right away. They have come a long way in 3 years. We are very appreciative of Michael and the instructors at Music On Magnolia and hope to continue coming for many years. "
