About the Studio:

We are a team of private music instructors based in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.  We encourage our teachers to see the studio as an ensemble.  Just like in an ensemble, each teacher brings to the team the general principles of time management, sensitivity to individual musicianship, integrity of music ability and a sense that only 100% effort will yield ideal results.  However, just as in an ensemble, we recognize that each musician brings their own individual capabilities and strengths and respects that everyone be honest about their weaknesses.  It's only when we can listen that we can make the best music.
