Welcome to Music Suite 408
What began as a dream, is now a reality! For me, Music Suite 408 is a culmination of years of teaching young people, respect, discipline, commitment and joy! As a music educator in the Illinois Valley I believe that music and the arts make people better and foster economic growth in our community.
Music Suite 408 is a community based music and enrichment center that provides quality music, art, creative writing and tutoring, foreign language instruction at a moderate price to students of all ages, ethnic and economic backgrounds. Individualized one-to-one lessons or group instruction will provide you and your child(ren) the opportunity to achieve mastery in both realms. Through a comprehensive curriculum which includes individual and group instruction, classes, ensembles and performances, Music Suite 408 fosters the love of music and the arts, nurtures creative talent, and educates students in the discipline of the arts ~ a discipline that benefits all areas of learning throughout life.
At Music Suite 408, the goal of arts education is ultimately expressed in the comprehensive enjoyment of the arts. Our teaching methods stress a strong foundation and traditional understanding of the arts with an emphasis on expressive ability. Students of all levels and backgrounds learn at a level of instruction that encourages them to perfect current level projects and to welcome new challenges as they gain confidence and expertise. Music Suite 408 instructors impart a variety of practical strategies that ensure confidence, relieve anxiety and enhance proficiency.
Thank you for joining us for a comprehensive adventure in the arts. They are one of life's finest resources. We are eager to participate in the arts education of your family.
If at any time, you have questions or concerns, please feel free to call.
