organization, we've been
teaching students to play since
1997. Every year, some
well- meaning home-based musician will start teaching a little bit "on
the side", and a year
or two later they've stopped. But
our "real" job is teaching
students to make music.
A wide range of lesson times.
You don't have to wait in a retail showroom or sit on someone's living room couch; we have a
nicely appointed waiting room with tables, comfortable chairs, magazines, free wi-fi and a bottled-water cooler.

We are the only music schools in Kansas that gives their students the opportunity to earn
special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other
schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them
full color, really cool "Musical Ladder" wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder is our
unique method of music education that you can only get here.
Trophies, certificates and award wristbands to celebrate achievement.
More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud,
their teachers are proud, and everybody wins. You can only get the Musical Ladder here.
We are the only music school in Kansas that offers Garten's Music discount cards for our students. This
saves them money all throughout the year.
Garten's sells music books, supplies and accessories. All of our current students receive a student
discount card that saves them money on all of their music supply needs.

Since we are a full-service music school, we offer lessons as early as 9 a.m.,
and we see many students between the hours of 11 a.m.-2 p.m. If you are a home school parent, retiree, college student or working
professional who has a flexible schedule, take advantage of our morning and lunch time lesson spots.

our studios have
observation windows in every door so you can watch your child's lesson
without disrupting the educational process. (Of course, you can sit in
on their lesson anytime you like.) All of our teachers have undergone four state and national background checks. We take our students' safety seriously.
A secure lesson environment.
No one finds it inspiring to play on an old clunker with keys not working. Lesson rooms with pianos get new instruments every year.

(You will want to bring
your own instrument if you're not studying piano or voice.)
parent wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really
progressing. And every child deserves the opportunity to
perform in front of others. The best way for this to happen
is with one of our biannual
Student Showcase concerts. A far cry from the "recitals" of old, these
concerts are fun, optional, low-pressure and stress-free. And,
they are free. Unlike some music schools, we don't charge
admission fees for concert participation.
Free Student Showcase concerts.
In conjunction with our concerts, we offer a free picture
day, using professional backdrops and lighting. This is a service
that you will love. Adult students are welcome too!
Students can bring their instruments to the photo shoot and wear
whatever they like
We also shoot video of our students' performances for the benefit of friends and family that cannot attend our concerts. (See link above.)
