My experience with Music Center has been fantastic. I'm currently a board member with a four year old daughter taking Music Together clasees. Because she sings / plays music night and day, I can safely say the staff at Music Center is fantastic.

I returned to violin playing when my children were taking music lesons. I took lessons myself and played in a community orchestra, but felt I was not learning enough. Through friends I asked to join the string orchestra (Hildman Strings) at Music Center. Then I took lessons there and participated in chamber music wokshops, finding this my favorite activity. They asked me to join the Board of Directors, which I did.
