Our real vision as a music school

When it comes to teaching music, our vision here at the Irvine School of Music is different. We empower musical voices. That’s why we don’t sell books or rent instruments. It’s why we cater each and every lesson to each and every musician’s unique goals. Our vision is the music, and from the moment you step inside our studio you’ll feel it.

The faculty is committed to teaching the Irvine School of Music Core Curriculum, which is an integration of healthy technique, listening (aural skills) development, and theoretical knowledge. This strong foundation empowers students with the skills to tackle advanced music as well as a variety of musical idioms, including Classical, Jazz, and Pop.

What makes us stand out is our enrichment programs that are geared towards long term success, which include optional sequenced performance opportunities, unique medal-level programs designed to monitor progress from year to year and incentive programs geared towards motivating students with in-home practice.

Each member of our Faculty is carefully selected based on extensive teaching experience and the ability to work with the specific needs of our students. While music-making is at the heart of the lesson, it is always the unique goals of each student – whether a five-year old beginner piano student, an adult voice student, or budding songwriter – that constitute the focal point of instruction.

Teachers that inspire and engage

We have qualified, caring teachers who are university trained. They are credentialed teachers from some of the best school districts in California. This is because we know that often teachers trained in teaching (and not just all of Beethoven’s sonatas) are better at helping musicians, especially children, achieve each one of their goals.

Our teachers know not only how to teach every corner of music, but how to teach it so that you’re eager to learn, love your music lessons and get a musical education that lasts.


There’s a sense of community and camaraderie amongst the faculty as they frequently share teaching tips that have been tried and tested.

“Teaching and providing the skills for a lifetime is our focus. Enjoyment of music is our mission.”
