Teacher Christine is an excellent teacher! She puts all her passion in every class she teaches. It’s really hard for 6-year-old boys to take an hour music class and never get bored. But Christine has successfully accomplished The Mission Impossible. My twin boys love the classes!

“I am a professional, classically trained singer who has performed regularly at the New York Metropolitan Opera for the past 10 years...I have spent a lot of time in music classes for my young daughters, and The New Mozart School of Music is ABSOLUTELY UNIQUE in its approach to teaching music to young children...

unlike other classes, every song and game is building a solid foundation, teaching the language of music that can be applied to any form of music that a child will undertake in the years to come...

I am thrilled and happy that my children have access to these classes at such a young age. We are so fortunate to have this amazing school in our community.”
