“When we opened Main Street Music we were faced with the question “do we want to try and build our own teaching staff or do we seek out the areas best teaching outfit and partner with them to run the lesson program?” It was a no brainer when the opportunity to work with Drew Bentley of Bentley & Romito Professional Music Lessons presented itself. Most music stores offer music lessons, Bentley & Romito specialize in them! Their teaching staff is the best in the area. We are all glad to be working together, with the common goal of bringing music to people of all ages and skill levels. Have a child who wants to start their first instrument? Maybe you’ve always wanted to play but just never got around to it? Have you been playing for a while but just feel stagnated? Drew and the staff can help your kids grow through music. They can get you started doing something you’ve always wanted to do and they can help you get over roadblocks and take your playing to the next level. There is a buzz of excitement in the air, as we all go about our day. In addition to our personnel, we offer soundproofed lesson rooms and a comfortable waiting lounge with WiFi. We also strive to go beyond an individual lesson experience by offering a variety of different programs that bring students together. Our dream of operating a different kind of music school keeps us always striving to improve.”
With Teachers as experienced as ours we should be able to create the next generation of real musicians.
