My wife, Katherine and I started MusicalArts in the fall of 2001. Katherine and I hold Bachelor and Master degrees in classical guitar and composition. We began the school to foster a community of passionate well trained teachers to empower student’s creativity. The arts are a powerful tool to create happiness, peace, euphoria, and process pain and stress to name a few. It is vital to our human nature and well being.
We began the school in 2001 teaching guitar, piano and music classes in Exeter. In 2006, we moved to the Historic Tuck Building. With the new location, MusicalArts was able to expand to accommodate dance and theater programming. What began as a school with just two instructors grew a community of over 30 talented instructors. To accommodate the demand for classes, we opened our second location in Dover.
As proud parents of Oliver and Zoe, we realize how hard it can be to juggle a busy schedule and find quality worthwhile programming for your child. We strive to host the very best instructors on the Seacoast with unique programming. We created the MusicalArts community with your family in mind. One child can be in dance while another takes music lessons.
We strongly believe in your child’s potential and creativity. MusicalArts’ instructors will foster their budding interest to a lifelong love of the arts. Please stop by and try us out!
