I can assure you that you will not find a finer facility in the country. Do all the searching you want and nothing will compare to this place. Charles Simon, the GM, runs the best music school in America and it's not even close. Top level instruction, gorgeous facility and state of the art recording studios. Also very accommodating when we can’t make it to a scheduled lesson.
Charles Simon is my current guitar instructor, I look forward to each lesson and am learning all I hoped to.All my experiences at Stages Music Arts have been excellent!!I will continue to recommend Stages to any musicians I know.
