What students and parents are saying about lessons at Centre Music House:

"My daughter Emma looks forward to her weekly piano lesson with Lauren, it’s one of the highlights of her week. Lauren is doing a great job engaging Emma and making piano fun."

- Bethany L. (Parent)

"Don't be deceived by its small size, they have what you need in music, instruments, mics, service, strings, lessons, etc. I drove by this place so many times in the past 3 years, and wish I had taken the time to visit earlier instead of driving to Newton or getting things online."

- MaryAnne T. (Student)

"Great piano lessons for our 5 year old daughter. Erin is excellent and teaches all ages and is great with children. We have been so lucky to have lessons during a time where we need something to look forward to and offer some structure for little ones to express themselves and grow."

- Shelly A. (Parent)
