I love the concept of music gym. It's innovative and different. I believe that it will build a good music community as well. Anw, I currently enjoy all 3 classes with the team. All the teachers are enthusiastic and friendly. Not to mention that they provided the high end roland pianos and taylor accoustic guitars 😍. I believe that if you come everyday, you'll be better before you know it. Keep up the good work guys!!read more

I have been going to lessons for a few weeks now and it is a great way to learn. They have you playing songs each lesson to keep you motivated while they teach you the more advanced stuff as well. The facilities and equipment are great and the coaches are really patient even with the musically challenged like me. It's a music school for adults and a really comfortable way to learn something I have always wanted to do with people who are at the same level as me.read more
