What people say?

The instructors at Northwest School of Music do a fantastic job with our children. It’s a positive and fun learning environment and we are so happy to be a part of this school.
Amanda Lee
Our teacher from Northwest School of Music is very patient; my daughter loves having her as a piano teacher. It is very convenient to have her come to the house for a reasonable fee. She is prompt and flexible, and easy to get ahold of. I can’t wait for my son to start lessons with her as well.
