Happy Students and Parents Alike.

We loved attending Beebopper music classes (and now Pianorama as my daughter is older) at ISM. I love the way their program is able to teach kids the foundations of music, including the basics of reading notes, whilst being super fun and engaging. My daughter also made friends there and always looked forward to going. Music is such a wonderful thing for kids to learn and I highly recommend ISM. I should also mention that both my older kids also did the Beebopper and Pianorama courses, and I/they had equally positive experiences..”

Jessica Kent

Miss Mara gave my daughter an great, well-rounded introduction to the piano and musicality in the ‘Pianorama’ group classes. Fun and engaging, she learnt great little ‘Finger Gym’ keyboard exercises in the bass and treble clef, singing and rhythm exercises with percussion..”
