Both of my girls have attended classes (piano and guitar) and camps at RMC. The teachers and staff are top-notch! Above everything else, my girls learn to love music here...that is worth more than 5 stars!

My family has been loving the music classes, music lessons, and parents night out opportunities at Recreational Music Center since moving to San Diego just over a year ago. My 4 year old son has looked forward to every Musical Friends class with tremendous joy, and has been enthusiastically taking 1-1 violin lessons with Mr. Michael for a few months. My 8 year old daughter has been taking Music Theory class with Mr. David, as well as violin lessons with Mr. Michael, for nearly a year now. She truly enjoys her classes and lessons due to her wonderful teachers. She is proud to be "a violinist" and is happily planning her next performance. Teachers at RMC wear their enthusiasm and passion for music on their sleeves--and their excitement is contagious. I treasure the teachers' positive guidance and the warmth of the entire RMC staff. Their joy for what they do has been a gift to our family.

We've been receiving music lessons for nearly 3 years now. All the staff have been fantastic and very friendly. The parents love the Parents Night Out and the children love the seasonal music recitals, playing at senior centers, and the awesome summer camps. RMC does so much for our community and our children.

I would like to thank Recreational Music Center for giving me and my 5 year old son first violin lesson experience. We are taking lessons with Michael and he's absolutely wonderful. You can tell he loves what he does and strives for the success for his students. I highly recommend him and entire studio!!

I'm a new volunteer for their Music4Change program and I love it here! The staff is so nice and really inspires me to want to work with kids more. Right now I'm a student that is studying teaching. Every day I come to volunteer, I learn so much about life, love, and music. It is so wonderful to be involved with such passionate people that really care about community involvement! Today I set up a display that advertises our Autumn Outreach event. I hope you will join us for our community outreach events!

Both of my children take piano classes at RMC. The teachers are great and they have both enjoyed playing in the student showcases which are low-key but give the kids a chance to show off what they are learning. We've also had a couple birthday parties here which were a lot of fun!
