MUSIC IS

A fun and pressure free approach to music

Twelve Tone Music School has created a unique music program that allows kids to come together in small groups of 6 students or less to create bands, collaborate and have fun. We combine that with one-on-one learning to create a program that is more effective than traditional private music lessons or large house bands.

Our bands are built with students who play different instruments coming together in a small consistent group that allows them to build relationships, learn and thrive.  We have created over 50 bands and counting.

Our Jam/Band program helps students learn how to communicate, work as a team and help each other.  Because it’s a small consistent group kids are able to forge friendships and genuinely have their own band.

WHAT IS TWELVE TONE ALL ABOUT?

Twelve Tone is an integrative music program designed to be a collaborative approach for faster progress.  We don't believe in the standard old-school system that focuses exclusively on 1-on-1 private lessons, nor an intimidating, performance-based method that piles on tons of pressure, rather we approach music the way it's meant to be, collaborative and fun.  Click play to watch our video.

WHAT SETS US APART? 

We take top-notch instructors with a profound passion for music and a love for teaching, mix in some individually-tailored 1-on-1 private lessons, add our secret ingredient: Small Squad Jam Session, giving kids the unique ability to learn improvisation while teaching them to thrive in an ensemble. From this, out comes amazing little musicians who radiate joy and a sense of pride.

Both of my kids love their teachers.  We cannot say enough great things about Sandy. She has really inspired our daughter to love to play and practice.  The night and day difference in our son's playing after joining a jam class is incredible."
