At Lyriq Music School we believe in nurturing the whole musician from technique and musical knowledge to interpretation and performance.
By creating a collaborative environment between students and teachers we cultivate our students' musical abilities alongside their confidence and happiness.

Experienced Instructors

Our teachers are highly qualified academically and also masters of their instruments. We strive to hire the best and support their growth as teachers in their professional development.

Curriculum & Approach

No two musicians are alike and neither are their goals. At your first lesson the student and teacher set attainable goals and revisit them regularly. Your lessons are tailored to your individual needs.

Lyriq Music School strongly believes consistent teaching of Music Theory fundamentals is paramount to a musical success, which is why our students use supplemental theory workbooks in their studies.

Personalized Attention
for All Skill Levels

Making music can be many things: Fun, Stress Relieving, Personally Rewarding, Exercise for the Mind, for both young and old. At Lyriq Music School we strive to provide an individualized experience that coincides with your goals.

We have students from 4 years old to 65 and above, from those who are just getting started to those looking for a professional tune-up, or coach. Refer to individual instrument requirements for minimum age recommendations. voice, piano, more under "instruments" above.
