Another one of our young students performs Sonatina on the Piano in Glendale Arizona. Russell attends music school weekly at our Piano studio in Glendale and continues his training at home. Our students learn to read music and perform in front of a live audience. Students learn music theory, note reading, chords, scales, and performance. Families from all over the valley attend our affordable music classes and learn from some of the best piano instructors in Arizona. Students travel from Phoenix, Glendale, Peoria, and Surprise to learn music at the Note Room Academy of Music. We offer Piano lessons, drums, guitar, bass guitar, stringed instruments, and voice lessons.
