If you have not heard from your teacher within a few days of your enrollment, or it is within 48 hours of your start date, please call us so that we can research the problem, and help ensure your confirmation. Please do not wait until the day before or the day of your class to call, since we often need at least a day to find out why the teacher has not contacted you.

It is our desire that Teachers, Educational Specialists and Parents and Students work together as a team to care for the ongoing fine arts needs of the entire family. If there is a concern that you are not comfortable discussing with the teacher, please feel free to make a phone appointment to discuss any concerns with your Educational Specialist or our office.

Actual Customer Testimonials:

"We have recommended to many of our friends. We love the place. It has totally helped our daughter to not only know the notes but to truly have fun with them! We love the teacher(s) and wish them all the very best. - " -- Happy parents

"Our daughter, Melissa, loves her music class, and she looks forward to the recitals. She's made friends and become more confident. We'd recommend the Music Place to anyone. -- Melissa's parents, Kathy & Matt, Los Gatos" .

I tell everyone who will listen about the amazing introduction to music that our daughter is getting with the Music Place. People are always amazed when a 3-year old explains that she played an oboe last week and is going to play a piccolo next week! Most importantly, our daughter can't wait for music class & asks to go every day. -- The Pace Family
