    The teacher is great to explain what I can do to help my young son practice. The teacher has already allowed my son to "accompany" real MUSIC via YouTube, making my son very excited!

    My sons have been in piano lessons at Forte since 2008 and I can't say enough good things about them. They have teachers for several different instruments, including voice coaches and even a banjo instructor. They are very reasonably priced, everyone is friendly and professional, and I've never had a bad experience with Forte.

    I highly recommend this school. This facility offers a great atmosphere for learning while providing faculty who are experts in their discipline. I compared Forté Music School to other music schools in the area and found that the other schools were either overly priced or, were limited in faculty expertise. The faculty consists of individuals who are very professional and friendly. My daughter has taken violin lessons at this facility since 2013, and soon after she was diagnosed with dyslexia. Upon discovering this disability, the violin instructor has actively worked with us in an effort to evolve with her learning needs. Ultimately, if you are looking for a music school that meets all of your needs and is reasonably priced, then Forté Music School is the obvious choice.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals.

We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach.

Hey seven-year-old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than a 57-year-old taking up piano for the second time after having had a lessons as a The the the the the the thechild.

The main reason to choose the Forté Music School as your music lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual.

If you enroll here for the lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first lesson, your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself for your child.

We teach all styles from rock, pop, jazz, country, blues , and classical.

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

How are teachers have received their education from prestigious institutions such as  New York University, Indiana University,Berklee College of music, Oxford University,University of Northern Texas, Bowling Green State University, Cincinnati Conservatory, University of Toledo, and many others. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of the US and Europe and have many years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly, and strive to get to know each student and their parents on a personal level. 

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

When you come in for your first lesson, you only pay for that first lesson to make sure that you like your teacher, the school, and the environment. 

At your second lesson, we enroll you in our Mont to Month tuition system.  You can start and stop anytime with no long term commitments. 

What types of students have you worked with?

We have worked with all kinds of students, from 3 years orl, to 73, including students with special needs. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We have a lot of performance opportunities throughout the year where students can perform on stage and become the musician they aspire to be. 

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

We are the largest and best music school in the area for a very good reason.  Give us a try and find out why.  We constantly strive to raise the bar in every direction.
