7. Free, all-inclusive student showcases with NO participation fees!

Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it is to have their child participate in a recital.

Your participation in recitals is optional. However, they are a great way for you to grow your talent. Your instructor will help you or your child prepare for any recital you sign up for. The Musicians Learning Center will provide you at least two free recital opportunities each year.

We hold these at prestigious auditoriums such as Meredith College, as they have a grand Steinway piano and world class acoustics. Unlike other schools, parents never have to pay admission or any related fees for these recitals. Performers receive a free recording of the performance as well as a framed photograph.

9. Trophies, certificates, and award wristbands to celebrate achievement

We are the only music school in Raleigh that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces (see pictures on left) by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder® is our unique method of music education that you can only get here.

More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins. You can only get the Musical Ladder® here. We also specialize in music lessons for adults.

We have had a great experience with The Musicians Learning Center. Very friendly staff and great instructors. Jessica teaches my 6 year old son piano and we absolutely love her. She is great with the younger kids and very patient and professional. Definitely recommend if you’re looking to learn an instrument.

-Cayla Ozturk

I first started coming to The Musicians Learning Center three years ago for violin lessons for my daughter. Her teacher has challenged her to improve while driving her interest at the same time. I can’t be more enthusiastic about the methods, passion or credentials.
