Our students learn to play faster, enjoy lessons more and stick with their instrument longer. This is because we custom-tailor each lesson to the student's learning style and personality. You and/or your child will be playing right from the start and will be set up to enjoy a lifetime of music. Our teachers stand apart through their commitment to give each student a unique opportunity to experience the amazing effects that come with taking music lessons. Students come away with top-notch musical training, as well as increased confidence and self-esteem, enhanced brain and body function, and a greater appreciation for something we can all connect with - music. We go through an exhausting screening process to find and train teachers who are musicians, not musicians who want to "teach" on the side. We also have Music Therapists on staff for working with children and adults that have learning disabilities and special needs.  All this is a testament to our mission here at teVelde Music, Inc. We use music to spread joy. Come have fun with us!

Perfect Absolute Pitch: Our Greatest Mission We consider our greatest contribution to every student and potential musician is the opportunity to work with us develop perfect absolute pitch (AP), or relative pitch recognition in every student. teVelde Music, Inc. specializes in helping students learn to hear "in color". It has long been thought that AP can only be taught before the age of 6, otherwise the ability is lost forever. We are breaking new ground by being able to teach AP to students of ANY AGE! Our teachers specialize in developing this ability in all of our students.

My daughter, Emily, age 8, has been taking piano lessons with Cassidy at teVelde for 2 years. At the start of her lessons she dreaded going, but within a few weeks she started being extremely excited to see him. Cassidy is an excellent instructor, and is very good with kids!

Emily is now also attending teVelde's "School of Rock 1" Summer Camp. She loves it! It is a small group & they all learn different instruments & sing. The kids laugh & have fun, & learn musical instruments... how good is that?! There are 2 instructors for the small group (5-6 kids), who provide a lot of 1 on 1 instruction. Great job teVelde! The kids will never forget this experience!

My daughter has been taking music lessons at teVelde School of Music for only about half a year; but the progress she's made (even at the tender age of 4-1/2 by the way) is amazing. Her teacher is amazing, patient, knowledgeable and VERY VERY good at what she does. The owner, Bonnie (who is not only a wonderful musician and writer) is brilliant when it comes to understanding kids (or anyone who wants to learn music) and what they need to excel in music. This music school is unlike any other on the Central Coast - and in fact, the method they teach (Perfect Pitch) is one of the very few places IN THE COUNTRY that are trained to teach it. If you are serious about music or about your child's education in music (or getting them started and on the RIGHT path in music) - you should experience the best and call them. Thank you te Velde Music for your amazing support of our daughter's "gift" and love for music.
