Our Story

We know what it feels like to be overwhelmed when searching for piano lessons for your child. Lessons that will meet both your child’s needs and your own needs as a parent.

As parents ourselves, we became frustrated when searching for a music curriculum to teach our own children the art of music.

Lessons that would include all of the needed technique, theory, composition, improv, and independence required as a player, while also making it engaging and fun for their age. Since we are both trained educators, we decided parents and children deserved better and set out to change the way music could be taught. It’s then that the group music lessons at Arrow Academy of Music were born, finally putting an end to the boring, uncomfortable, and unproductive music lessons of the past.

If you’re like us, you just want what’s best for your child. Lessons that will teach your child the basic music skills they need to play an instrument. Lessons that will keep them engaged and prevent them from becoming frustrated, bored, and eventually losing interest. We know you just want to be a good and responsible parent who provides your child with the learning opportunities they need to become healthy and thriving adults.

Since 2010, we’ve helped countless people just like you find the music lessons they need so their children can learn to play an instrument. Because our teaching method began from wanting to be good parents first, we are committed to helping you become the parent you want to be as well, so you can stop feeling overwhelmed and stressed.
