  The Janow's 
Founder’s Notes 

We offer music instruction in Piano, Band, Choir, Guitar and Strings in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Included in each workshop and one-on-one lesson is the study of “Music Theory”. 


Any student from any school is welcome to enroll and participate in any of the workshops offered. Some workshops are geared towards a certain age group.  However, students at all skill levels may be accommodated through private lessons.


The option of our one-on-one lessons is a great way to get the undivided attention of our world-class instructors. If private lessons are appealing to you, we welcome you to reach out. 


We enjoy spreading the joy and beauty of music in the world, and cannot wait for you to be a part of it.
