Our Mission

Our mission at Sound Source Music is to educate every student in the best way possible by providing the best teachers, learning environment, and materials in a fun and encouraging environment.

Our Experience

Sound Source Music has been in business for over 38 years, and our teachers are some of the finest musicians in the area that specialize in almost every style… from rock to country, jazz, blues, metal, classical, and more. Our annual spring recitals offer students an opportunity to play in front of an audience. We also offer our performance class where we match students in a band setting and mentor them to play live gigs in the community.

Why take music lessons?

  • Music education helps reduce “disruptive behavior” in school-aged students. (National Education Longitudinal Study)
