About Us

What makes us so special?

What makes us so special?

We believe a lot of things make us special. The 10 River Academy of Music is a small group of seasoned, professional musicians with years of experience in the music industry ranging from private music education to live musical performances. We understand the ins and outs of the instruments we love to play and teach; and share a burning passion for educating musicians of all ages, levels, and musical styles. Although we are incredibly serious about the education that we offer, we do not let that come at the price of a friendly, comfortable environment. Make no mistake! We do not ever make a compromise when it comes to the quality of the education that we offer, but we want our students to feel at home when becoming part of our growing family here at the 10 River Academy of Music.
