Our teaching philosophy encompasses the finest aspects of our musical training heritage and inspires us to share those with every student. K and M Music teachers cultivate and nurture curiosity and love for classical music creating many wonderful experiences for students through private lessons, performances, and competitions.

The Russian Music School of Performance principles offer a sound pedagogical framework focusing on traditional aspects of reading and analyzing music, critical listening, and developing excellent technical skills. These facets all work together as a full body performing experience.

Although this may seem quite academic, students who enroll in private violin and piano lessons excel because of a solid foundation that enables them to make steady progress throughout their years of study. We believe that parents are the true heroes for our students and encourage them to communicate regularly with our teachers to enhance their students’ success. We hope that classical music will become a part of your family tradition as you explore our children’s music programs. 

K and M Music Company is pleased to offer music classes for our youngest musicians!

Early music education offers tremendous benefits and enjoyment for preschool-aged children. Early musical exposure serves as an excellent introduction to basic skills that will develop as they continue with private lessons when old enough. Our classes help young students understand the rhythm found in all music, foster critical listening skills, and reinforce letter and number recognition when possible. Age-appropriate musical activities encourage good coordination and body awareness as well as improve motor skills. Our group setting also inspires other essential preschool virtues, such as following directions and respect for others.

Young musicians in early childhood music classes at K and M will focus on singing songs and cultivating self-expression through movement. They will learn to recognize the mood and character of music by hearing happy, sad, and lyrical pieces while comparing the qualities of each. The use of percussion instruments, dance, and clapping are incorporated into each class to help students develop rhythm and to encourage maintaining a steady beat. Students can also look forward to getting acquainted with the piano and other instruments as they progress and mature. As children become developmentally prepared, they begin to learn basic music symbols, the musical alphabet, and note values.

Young students will enjoy meeting and interacting with other children while discovering and nurturing their natural musical abilities. Our preschool classes offer a unique opportunity with a positive atmosphere and influence that can ultimately lead to a successful transition to learning to play an instrument.

We offer piano and violin lessons adapted to students of all ages and levels. Also we are working with Charter Schools such as Pacific Coast Academy, Cabrillo Point Academy, Mission Vista Academy. Our yearly events calendar provides students with many opportunities and challenges to grow their confidence as young musicians. K and M Music looks forward to answering your questions and meeting with you and your child as you choose the best music school to enroll in private music lessons.

If you are wondering when to start music lessons, there is no better time than the present to enjoy the gift of music! Contact us today for a complimentary consultation and to see if your child is ready to begin their music education.

The students who choose K and M Music come from diverse backgrounds and they all share a common trait. They are curious about classical music and feel excited to play a musical instrument! Many prospective students have seen concerts, performances, or videos of great musicians and desire to learn that same musical skill.

We welcome students of all ages and levels, as we believe playing a musical instrument benefits everyone intellectually, physically, and emotionally. Our approach to piano and violin lessons teaches students to analyze music, develop self-awareness as they play, and learn self-correction as their technical abilities improve.

The teachers at K and M Music believe that private music lessons should lead to opportunities for personal growth, setting music goals, and motivation through achievement. These aspects develop as students advance through age-appropriate curricula and levels of repertoire and increase performance expectations through their years of study.

Our students participate in 3 to 4 recitals yearly, and they often become inspired to practice as they listen to their peers perform. Each student’s progress and musical accomplishments are important to us.

In addition to recitals, K and M Music students have numerous opportunities for musical growth through events offered by the Music Teachers’ Association of California® and National Guild of Piano Teachers. Participation in the Certificate of Merit® test, plus festivals and competitions, help students set and achieve individual goals.

We value each student as they begin their private lesson experience at our music school. We invite you to learn more about the expectations of our beginner, intermediate, and advanced students and what they can anticipate in piano and violin lessons at K and M Music.

If you have questions about your child’s age or readiness to begin lessons, please contact us for a complimentary consultation. Adults who wish to enroll as students are also welcome and encouraged to contact us with questions or concerns.
