Olympia's Premier School of Music

logo_178x127_lightgreybgExpect good things from your experience at The Olympia Studio! We encourage students to reach their full potential and challenge them to a higher standard. We receive a tremendous sense of satisfaction from the learning process. To us, learning/teaching is fun! Therefore, The Olympia Studio attracts students that are driven, competitive, and excited to learn.

Whether you are dusting off your instrument, trying to refine your performance skills, or learning how to write music, The Olympia studio is for people of all types and ages! There is little we can't teach. Jazz, rock, blues, classical and improvisation.

Our monthly interactive music lab classes focus on theory, ear training, scales, cadences, and rhythm, to supplement your private music classes, while our higher education programs are sculpted to suit your personal music goals. We do not simply teach you how to read music, we educate you in how to become a true musician!
