Momentum Music School is built on a community-centered

approach that includes many opportunities for students and their families to build relationships with each other and the art of music. 

From group classes and concerts to master classes, retreats and international studio tours, our students flourish both musically and personally when engaged on multiple levels.

The joy of sharing music with appreciative audiences is one of the greatest sources of motivation for musicians. We give recitals and concerts in many different venues and contexts.

The Flying Colors Performance Program offers masterclasses with extraordinary pedagogues to our advanced students. All students are encouraged to attend these masterclasses.   


International Tours

Musical tours are one of life’s great experiences. There is something about connection through music that reveals both commonalities and magnifies the beauty of each unique individual. We will be traveling to Barcelona for a series of performances and a musical exchange with the students and teachers of the Suzuki Music Institute in Barcelona in July of 2024. More information and registration found here:

Barcelona Tour 2024
