Musical Surprise is the largest music studio in the west valley! We also provide a variety of classes and music programming in our studio and for several local schools, preschools, arts organizations and recreation programs.
Check out our studio and find out why we are the west valley’s #1 choice
1. We provide a variety of lessons, classes and services in one location.
We offer private lessons in almost every instrument, group classes in the most popular areas of singing, piano, guitar and percussion, and have music programs available for ages 2-92!
2. We have the most qualified music teaching staff in the west valley.
We hire degreed teachers, board-certified music therapists and professional performers. We have someone available to teach almost any music style and genre to all levels of students. All teachers must have a fingerprint clearance card or background check before teaching lessons.
3. We have a professional music studio – this is our business!
No more waiting in the car (or someone’s living room), or standing in a music retail store showroom waiting for your student. We have a comfortable waiting area and everything we need at our fingertips to give your student a quality music education in a comfortable, professional environment.
4. We Encourage parent participation and feedback!
Many studios do not allow parents to sit in with the student during their session. We encourage parent involvement because it is one the most important indicators of a students’ success.
5. We have everything you need to get started.
Our lesson rooms are stocked with amps, guitars, pianos, keyboards, stands, full drum kits and more. We have method books, strings, reeds and supplies in our retail section and instrument rentals are available as well– all we need is YOU!
6. Proven track record of excellence.
Every year, aspiring music teachers start their own studio and then close it down soon after– not us! Our full time mission is teaching music lessons, and we’ve done so successfully for more than 25 years in the various cities. We are privately owned and operated, and moved into Surprise in 2006. We opened Musical Surprise in 2008, and have experienced significant growth yearly, and have become the “go-to” place for music programs in this area. We currently provide services for 8 preschools, 2 Prep Schools, the City of Surprise, Dysart Community Education and the West Valley Arts Council.
7. Music Lessons should be educational AND fun!
We believe a strong theory-based foundation is essential to any student’s program, but we also know that our students are taking lessons because they think it would be FUN to play! That’s why we supplement our lessons with music that students WANT to play. We even incorporate Performance PARTIES into our teaching schedule so that students learn the joy of sharing their music with others in fun, low-pressure situations that celebrate music!
8. Music should be accessible to everyone.
That’s why we offer lessons for ages 3 and up, classes for toddlers to adults as well as music therapy services and adaptive lessons for those with special needs. We have worked with clients age 2 years to 92 years and welcome all ages, levels and abilities.
9. We offer lessons at times to fit almost ANYONE’S schedule.
We currently book lessons during the following hours: Mon-Thurs 10am-8pm, Fri 10am-7pm, Sat 9am-2pm & Sun by appointment.
10. No long-term contracts, we bill tuition on a month-to-month basis or by group class term.
We don’t think long-term contracts are necessary- our students make good progress and tend to stay because they want to!
