Our Method

Our "Big Idea" is Simple

Playing the music you love makes learning a joy rather than a chore. More importantly, when you play with other musicians something magical happens - you start to "catch the bug" and begin developing a passion that serves as a launchpad for the rest of your learning and development. Our goal is to help your kids ignite their passion for music and unleash their inner artist!


Not Every Student Responds to the Traditional Method

Many schools try to fit students into a particular "box" that has been created for aspiring musicians. It goes something like this: If you want to learn piano you have to study Bach inventions, learn Fur Elise, and you eventually graduate to Beethoven Concertos. A lot of schools use this method and rely on parents to be heavily involved in their child's musical journey (aka. to make sure they practice). For some students (and parents) this works, but for others it can make music a chore.


So We Created an "Outside the Box" Approach

Not every student is the same. Some kids love playing Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff as soloists. Others may not be inspired by the classics, but still want to learn an instrument, and the idea of playing in a band excites them. We built Arts & Minds Academy to meet these young learners where they are, help them fall in love with music, and begin a lifelong relationship with their instruments! We believe music should inspire and ignite a passion, so we built our approach as another pathway to musicianship!
