We are dedicated to a simple, two-point mission:
- To provide quality instrumental music instruction for children and adults
- To make playing a music instrument a fun and enjoyable part of everyday life
Bringing the joy of music to anyone is a gift of incalculable value and the academic and life-skill benefits of musical instruction are well-documented. Those benefits suffer, however, if the process of instruction is not infused with a sense of fun and love of music as well as technical excellence. It is here that the Gasse School of Music excels.
The school provides individual and group instruction with an emphasis on self expression, creativity, teamwork, fun and proper technique. Lessons are given in instrumental music, elementary music for early childhood, chamber music and music reading. The school promotes public performances by its students, faculty and guest artists.
We use both the Suzuki and traditional teaching techniques, including sight reading, audition, and performance skills.
