Candace P. Alley, DMA


My mission is to instruct the student in various areas of music so that he will develop a deeper appreciation of the art, and to become a more well-rounded individual.  Over the past forty years,  I have enjoyed working with many dedicated students of various age and skill levels. It is vital that parents are supportive and committed to their child's study of music to help insure a more rewarding experience in music.


Music study plays a crucial role in the social and emotional growth and development of children. Adults greatly benefit in these areas as well. It is my goal to guide all students to fine tune their skills so that they can reach their maximum potential in their study of music.

        "Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything."


Since each student is unique, each private lesson plan is customized according to the student's ability and objectives. Each weekly 30 or 45 minute private lesson includes an additional 30 minute segment consisting of music theory and ear training study through computer, games, cd tapes, and hands-on aids. Individual instruction is offered in piano, music composition, and/or vocals.
