Music instruction

In addition to private music instruction, the school also offers classes, workshops and frequent recitals which focus on developing musicianship and performance skills. These unique opportunities offer hands-on experience. Students learn to play instruments as they gain other valuable skills that help them become well-rounded musicians.

All Mike Risko Music School teachers follow guidelines and curriculums to ensure that the student receives the essential elements they need to become musicians in whatever style they choose. In addition, there is always a member of our friendly office staff available to handle scheduling and answer questions.
