Parents are always on the lookout for the places they can trust completely to give their kids the absolute best. The library that has their kids clamoring for books. The gymnastics school that helps kids attain both athletic skills and discipline . . . while being fun. There aren’t many places like this—that’s why they’re so treasured—but The Music Studio is one of them. As soon as parents experience a class there, they know they their kids’ music education will be taken care of.
Partly that’s because of The Music Studio’s long and distinguished history: it has been providing comprehensive music education to Capital Region families since 1977. Thousands of students have learned to make, understand, and love music in its historic building on Central Avenue in Albany. But the reason it’s still thriving, still producing terrific musicians and devoted alumni after more than forty years, is its unique approach to music education.
When founder and director Noel Liberty established The Music Studio, she was determined to teach music differently. She believed that children have not only an innate love of music, but also an incredible capacity to learn. So she developed a curriculum that tapped into both, using fun, high-energy musical
activities to teach skills and concepts fundamental to making and understanding music. She wrote textbooks appropriate for students beginning as young as age 4, added grand and digital pianos and myriad other instruments, and hired more teachers, expanding the school to the celebrated Capital Region institution it is today.
The heart of the Music Studio is The Foundation, a school-year program of group lessons for children as young as age 4, after which our students continue in The Piano Program through high school. But we also provide the highest quality music classes for very young children, classes and individual instruction
for students with special needs, group classes for adult students, and a variety of popular summer camps. Underlying all of these programs are a deep love of both music and learning and the belief that everyone has the capacity to attain musical excellence.
