New Mexico School of Music company logo

The New Mexico School of Music was founded in 2005.  We offer instruction on virtually all instruments, including voice, for people of all ages and and musical backgrounds, from beginners to advanced musicians.  We feature a unique and comprehensive curriculum for students of all musical interests, including classical, pop, jazz, and rock and roll.

The school’s philosophy is to make the study of music engaging, fulfilling, and fun. We want all of our students to come away from their lessons with a positive experience and love of music.  Teaching music is much more than giving instruction on how to read notes or play a few pieces.  It is an opportunity to expand students’ life skills:  communication, patience, discipline, self-confidence, and joy.  We realize that most students will not be professional musicians and we want to provide students of all levels with a program that adds value and joy to their lives.  Each year we expand our curriculum and continually improve our facilities.

“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.”
