About this pro

Our academy has 16 to 18 teachers at any given time who teach a wide range of instruments including piano, violin, viola, guitar, wind instruments, drums, and we have a youth theater program.  Our concert showcases are unique in that students of all instruments and skill levels participate.  Even though a student is taking piano or violin lessons, there is intangible value in the constant exposure to other instruments and students.

Like most music teachers our instructors are professional, degree musicians.  Most are active performers as well as teachers.

150 seat theater!  We have our own concert hall where we host many events including our own recitals, concerts, and theater performances.

Music and teaching is my passion and life's work.  I want to make as many musicians, of any skill level, as possible.  What more needs to be said!?

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Ji-Eun Lee as a Master of Music from Indiana University as well as 25+ years of teaching experience from beginning students to college students.  We also have 16 to 18 professional music instructors at any given time who have have at least a Bachelors of Music degree -- roughly half of our instructors usually have a Masters of Music and we have some who hold a Doctor of Music degree.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Our lesson rate ranges from $27 to $30 per 30 minutes lesson.  One lesson per week.  Lessons are paid monthly at the start of every month for the scheduled number of lessons for that month.  If lesson is cancelled with 24 hour notice the lesson fee you paid will be credited to following month's lessons or refunded if you unenroll from our academy.

The variable lesson rate is based on type of instrument and experience of the teacher.


How did you get started teaching?

Music and music education has been my life's passion and work.  I think I have been a teacher even before I started teaching :-)


What types of students have you worked with?

I (and my instructors) have worked with all types of students ranging from the youngest beginning students (4 years old) to elderly beginning students to advanced high school and collegiate students.  We also have a decent amount of experience teaching students with learning or development challenges such as autistic and Asbergerg's children.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Accompanying some of our students in the annual ISSMA competition.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Before selecting a teacher understand your goal -- what is the purpose of learning to make music?

Our passion and interest is to teach students, young or old, to make music.  We want our students to not only be able to play music, but to leave our academy with a deeper understanding and enjoyment of music.  Some of our students go on to college to become professional musicians, but most students learn to make music for recreational purposes and will only spend 2 to 4 years in lessons. We think this is wonderful and in the context of one's life that is not much time to spend learning a new skill!  Therefore, you should look for hightly trained teachers with teaching experience, because that training and experience will translate into faster growth.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Will I commit to 30 minute lesson per week?

Will I commit to 15 to 30 minutes of practice every day?

What is my goal in learning to make music?

Do I want to perform publicly while I learn (recitals, concerts, community events)?

Did my teacher study music and have experience teaching students?  Is my teacher friendly, fun, and encouraging?
