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. From a collaborative concert with visual artists, to a combined concert with 9 other studios and 150 violinists, to Bach in the Subway which is an international event bringing the music of Bach to public places around the world in celebration of the great composer’s birthday, students are given a vast array of performance opportunities.


The Flying Colors Performance Program offers masterclasses with extraordinary pedagogues to our advanced students. All students are encouraged to attend these masterclasses. Clinicians for the 2019-2020 school year include Ron Patterson in November and Elisa Barston in February!   

International Tours

Due to the 2020 pandemic, we are postponing our studio tour to Cusco. We hope to rebook our tour for the summer of 2022. Contact us for more information or link to family login if you're a current student.
