FEATURED MUSIC STUDENT
FEATURED MUSIC STUDENT: CHRISTOPHER, AGE 12 ~ PIANO
“There are so many life skills that I have learned from the piano, some that I just take for granted. I have learned how to learn faster, and how to recognize different patterns in music, math, and science.“
The Myriad Music School & Dance Academy has taught thousands of students since it was established in 1997
A community favorite, our school provides a magical staircase approach to curriculum, ensuring success and confidence in all music and dance skills, from our youngest to our most advanced students.
