“The New Mexico School of Music has been such an amazing experience for our family!  The school teachers are very talented and creative.  My daughters loved learning the musical instruments at the school and could not wait till the next lesson.  They also participated in the recital, which was carefully planned with attention to content and made everyone happy and excited.


Tatiana and all the teachers in the school not only teach music, but also organize and participate in unique series of theory classes and faculty performances.  We truly believe that this school provides an incredible opportunity to any young or experienced musicians.”
