4. A proven track record of excellence since 2006.

Every year, aspiring music teachers start their own studio, and a year or two later it’s closed. Elkhart School of Music has a proven track record of offering quality music lessons in Michiana year round. Our full time mission is teaching music lessons trusted by over 6,000 families for over seventeen years.

5. A comfortable wait area for our clients.

We have a parent friendly waiting area with a coloring table/reading area for kids and fresh reading material and comfortable chairs for adults.  Instead of waiting in a music retail store showroom, our clients enjoy free Wi-Fi, comfortable chairs, kids books, coloring books, and magazines. Parents are always welcome to sit in on their child’s lesson anytime they wish.

6. Fully stocked music lesson rooms!

Our rooms are stocked with everything you need for music lessons, including amps, full drum kits, pianos and more. Piano, Voice, and Drum students need only bring their printed lesson materials to lessons. All others bring their instrument as well. One of the things that sets us apart is our focus on providing lessons that are fresh, new, and engaging.

7. Music recitals!

Every parent wants to know how his child is doing. The best way for a parent to understand if his investment in lessons is really worth it is to have his child participate in a recital. At Elkhart School of Music, we hold recitals twice a year (June and December). In approximately one month's time, each performer receives a free DVD of the recital for their personal archives.

Our next recital is scheduled for: Saturday, June 29, 2024

This recital is open to the public.  Admission is $8 per ticket or $10 at the door on recital day.

11. Pictures

Pictures are taken of all recital participants before every recital by a professional photographer. This happens twice a year and adds to the excitement of recital performance. All pictures are displayed at the Elkhart School of Music on our “Wall of Superstars”.

12. Month to Month lessons.

A start up time of two full calendar months of lessons is required for registered students. It is NOT required that the initial two months be paid up front when the student starts.  Neither are students required to start at the beginning of the month.  Rather, payments are taken monthly and students may start at any time.  Partial month starts will be prorated. Once a student has studied for the minimum two full calendar months, he will automatically transition to study on a month-to-month basis.  For those who wish to "try out" a few lessons before committing to a devoted course of study, we've got you covered!  For a slightly higher price, take as many or as few lessons as you like "a la carte".  Scroll to the bottom of this page to see tuition costs.

13. In-House Rental Instruments.

We offer rental instruments to our enrolled (registered) students for at-home practice.  Unlike our competitors, up to 100% of your rental fees are eligible to go toward the purchase of a new instrument.  And you may purchase your instrument at any time during the rental period, even if it isn't full-sized.

- Dominic Bartolini

I take both my children here for violin and voice lessons. The instructors are polite and professional and great with children. I have found them very easy to work with. The owner is kind and professional and was great with helping find the instruments, accessories and supplies we needed. Highly recommended!

Registered Students

Registered Students benefit by having a reserved lesson appointment with the same teacher each week.  We will work with you to find the best time and day for your busy schedule.  You will also receive a discounted price of $128 per calendar month, which yields an average of 4 private lessons.  Lessons are one-half hour in length.

Non-Registered Students

Want to "try us out" before committing?  Maybe you have an unpredictable schedule or only want a lesson every other week. No problem.  You may purchase a one-time lesson as often as you like.  The benefit here is that you are not "locked in" to a specific day and time each week and only pay for lessons as you are able to take them. For lessons done this way, tuition is $42 per lesson. Lessons are one-half hour in length.

Ask about our tuition discounts.  We regret that this discount can only be applied to the actual senior, veteran, or first responder, not to family members.
