Testimonials

Below are some glowing testimonials from our students and parents:

We love this school! My daughters are taking piano and flute and both of their teachers have been very motivating and patient with them. The teachers make the lessons fun and tailor the lessons to each students level. While Kathleen and Scott are always very professional, their kindness towards all the students and parents really make this school extraordinary. We love the family-like atmosphere that Northwest School of Music provides and would definitely recommend it to anyone!

A no-pressure environment. Great place for music lessons. My son has been in guitar classes since 2008, and didn’t miss a class (except for prior arrangements), which Kathleen is very helpful and accommodating with missed classes. Super friendly, professional staff! Highly recommend Northwest School of Music. Oh, and the hot tea in the lobby is always nice on those chilly mornings and afternoons! Thank you, Kathleen!

Really wonderful teachers and staff!!! My children loved their terrific teachers. Kathleen was always smiling and caring about everyone. She was also highly professional and did everything to make us happy! We also appreciated the cozy waiting room with a variety of cold/hot drinks and tons of magazines. It was very sad to leave them for our personal reasons, and we will try to come back in the future. Without hesitation I would recommend this great school to any family seeking quality music lessons.

A wonderful nurturing space for children to learn and cultivate their love of music. My daughter went from being shy about performing in public to singing in front of an audience at recitals. This really helped boost her confidence in singing in front of others. Thank you for such a wonderful and caring staff.

I have been blessed to know the teachers and Kathleen and Marie at Northwest School of Music. They have worked with us over the past two years in providing the best Customer Service possible.They have accommodated every request and have listened to our feedback. Our kids enjoy learning there. The recital was conducted professionally. Hospitality and caring attitude of Kathleen and Marie is to be appreciated very much. Communication is superb. Even though we moved far from the school, we are continuing there for all the above reasons. I am very happy to refer the school to anyone who is looking for a good music school in northwest Austin.

We love this place. My five-year-old who takes her piano lessons here, always enjoys going to the music school. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for good music school. Both the piano teachers that my daughter had are very good in what they do. The management is very professional, but loving and kind as well. My daughter gets to watch movies in the media room or draw or play games that are provided by the school in case we arrive early for the class. Kathleen and Marie are always helpful in case a change of schedule is needed and try their best to do what they can. The place is clean and parents can have coffee or tea while waiting, I like to use the free Wi-Fi while waiting. Overall, I think that I would not have been able to find a better place for my five-year-old to have her piano lessons. This school has been a blessing!!!!!

My family has been taking music lessons from Northwest School of Music for about three years. My son takes piano, clarinet and electric guitar lessons and my daughter takes acoustic guitar lessons. All of the teachers that my children have had so far have been amazing musicians, patient teachers and great influences. Kathleen gives personal attention to each family, remembering little details that make the kids feel important. The school itself is inviting and friendly, with art supplies and a media room for younger siblings. My youngest child is anxiously awaiting the time when she is “big enough” to play an instrument.

We have had the most positive experience at Northwest School of Music. Brett’s teacher has not only taught him how to play the guitar, he has allowed him to explore and challenge himself while making it so much fun. It is incredible what my son, Brett has learned in 3 years! The school has also been very welcoming to my younger daughter who has to wait around every week for her big brother. They offer movies, books, and coloring, which keeps her very entertained. She loves going too!! It is a warm and friendly environment. We absolutely love Northwest School of Music.

First I want to say how much my children enjoy learning and playing music because of their experience at Northwest School of Music.  We have been with the school for over three years, and from day one Kathleen and her musical family have been accommodating and understanding of our busy family and schedule.  They are extremely professional and create a welcoming atmosphere for parents, siblings, and students.  They go above and beyond to make learning music stress free and fun.  No stone is left unturned, and that is most evident at the Christmas and spring performances.  Not only do the students get to showcase their talents, but you get to see how talented the teachers are.  You won’t find a better school for any child that is interested in music. A big thanks from a very satisfied parent.

In my time at Northwest School of Music, I received professional training from very qualified teachers. My musical ability grew exponentially while attending the school. Northwest School of Music is the school for any aspiring musician to attend.
