Our Process

an individual approach

The Garrett Park School of Music was founded on the belief in sharing our passion for music with our community.  Lessons began humbly in the '90s as Garrett Park Guitars customers would come to us to sharpen their skills.  As the years went on, the school gradually grew to what it is today.

 

Through cultivating an environment for creative expression, our hope is to give back the freedom that music has given to us.

Our teachers take the time to understand the goals of each student and will set a plan to achieve those goals during their lessons.  As with any type of lesson, students must be prepared to practice their instrument every day and prepare questions for their teacher as they learn.
