Happy Minds School of Music (HMSM) opened its doors in Bellevue, WA, in July 2013.

We began as a small music school with three instructors providing 1-on-1 violin, viola, piano, and guitar lessons to about 40 students.​  With the incredible support from our customers via referrals and our dedicated music instructors, we have grown to 16 instructors and over 150 students, offerings music lessons in string (violin, viola & cello), piano, woodwind (clarinet, saxophone & flute), and guitar, ukulele, drums, and voice.


HMSM also offers three different formalized accreditation programs for students wanting a challenging curriculum with or without the intention of pursuing college credit or music school applications. In the past decade, we have helped over a hundred students receive their performance certificates via RCM, RSL, and Trinity College London. 

With the growing demand for music lessons on the East Side, we're pleased to announce that Happy Minds School of Music will be opening in Redmond in the Fall of 2023, bringing the same high quality music lessons closer to our customers in Redmond, Sammamish, Kirkland, Bothell, Carnation and other areas.

We pride ourselves in cultivating the love and appreciation of the benefits of music exposure and its effects on the lifelong pursuit of personal development

"Music can change the world because it can change people." Bono
