Why Queen City Music Studio?
We are family owned music school. We strive to provide the highest quality of music education in every instrument we offer. Unlike some other music schools our focus is not on the size of our student body but on the quality of our education.

Our instructors are handpicked by QCMS Director and undergo rigorous screening and (upon acceptance) training.

We draw our staff from the best and brightest of top music schools and conservatories across the world.

Recitals are a crucial element in musical education. We strive to provide our students with opportunities to perform on the stage frequently. Performing is a way to reward each student with the commitment and work they put into learning the instrument. It is also a great opportunity for parents and families to see the progress their child has made. However to some performing is fun, to others it could be a stressful experience. At QCMS we will also teach you how to overcome stage fright and enjoy performing on the stage. We believe that frequent public performances help students overcome a fear of public performance. We offer minimum of one recital per each semester (Spring, Summer, Fall Semesters) and provide many other performance opportunities to students seeking more frequent stage appearance.
Also, unlike other music schools in the area, QCMS offers music lessons at the comfort of your own home. If you are seeking a professional and positive teacher to provide music lessons at the convenience of your own home you are at the right place. Our In-Home Lessons are designed for busy parents, adult students and young professionals that do not have time to commute to lessons every week. We know how precious time can be therefore we created In-Home Lesson Program that saves you commute time by providing lessons in your home. Please note that In-Home lessons availability is limited and In-Home lessons are $10 extra per each lesson.
We are the only music school in area that offers private music lessons for children with special needs. We are fortunate to live in a world where children with learning differences have equal access to education opportunities. Each special needs student is different, unique and requires a child-specific approach to learning which QCMS is proud to offer.
