At Wall of Sound, we strive to provide students with fun and practical instruction from professional, dedicated musicians. Students will not only learn the fundamentals of music but also learn invaluable lessons about being a musician from instructors who are out there touring, recording and performing!
Beyond instruction, we are focused on becoming a musical community center. We offer rehearsal space for established and professional bands, a place for musicians of all ages to make connections and find other players, and perhaps most importantly, a place to be part of a community!
As we grow, we plan to host performances on our stage and many other special events and programs...stay tuned!
