What's Makes Us Different

Happy Minds School of Music has been offering music education to students in the Bellevue area for a decade. We know better than others that music can help students mentally and physically develop and improve their academic learning. We also know how to design a music program that fits our student's needs, whether it is for self-improvement or for pursuing an accreditation path. Committed to offering a well-rounded curriculum to students from beginners to experts, we don't quickly teach for exams and competitions; we prefer a step-by-step approach. We are thorough and understand that the joy and beauty of music cannot be fully experienced if students don't understand how to learn, create, and play music properly.
