Primary focus

With an emphasis on one’s musical progress and intense work-ethic, our teaching philosophies revolve around innovation and encourage an individual’s different interpretations of art. Our students are trained to acquire thought-provoking, ready-for-action mindset that set them apart and helps them emerge as proficient practitioners in the music industry.

Quality mentors

Students are mentored by internationally renowned faculties who have spent a majority of their lifetime practicing and mastering various instruments such as piano, guitar, violin, cello and clarinet. Collectively, they all hold impressive portfolios with high-ranking universities and world-wide recognized institutions including, to name a few, Johns Hopkins, Codarts, Ville De Luxembourg and Mahidol…etc.

As a matter of fact, students tend to expect much more from the faculties than just their technical and musical skills. For that reason, the teachers are always willing to be each learner’s personal counselor who gives advice on various topics such as educational choices, music-related activities, picking a right instrument to play and all other aspects of our student’s growth.
