Why Choose Performance School of the Arts?

Not all studios are the same, so come check us out and see why! We continuously renovate and make improvements to our facility, including the use of new pianos in all of our private rooms and the addition of a student library and book room. We have recently expanded our school to include more classrooms and instruments available for music lessons, better soundproofing, a large recital hall, and more spacious dance/art/acting studios with natural lighting. Also, our staff is provided with ongoing professional development to ensure that our students and families are provided with the best experience possible.

We know that you have other choices when it comes to music, dance, art and theater instruction. At Performance School of the Arts, we continually strive to provide the best learning experience to our students for all fine arts programs. Whether you are looking for beginner music or dance lessons, group art classes, want to rock out in a rock band, or star in a musical theater production, we are here to help you achieve your goals in a positive and motivating atmosphere!

Finding a teacher is simple with us, as we have many university-trained and qualified professionals on our staff. No matter what your age or skill level, we can guarantee that we have a teacher who will be able to provide quality instruction for both children and adults.
