The Staump musicians are more than just amazing teachers, they are really good people. We completely trust Tim, Wes, and their teammates for our son’s well being and growth.
Music is challenging, and Wes makes it fun and rewarding. He’s always positive, patient, and encouraging. We plan to continue with Staump until our son heads off to college.

We’ll help you hit all the right notes, whether you’re singing in the shower or belting it out on stage.

“You will not find a better place to pursue your passion for music. I started taking lessons when I was 16 in 2012. At first it started as something to occupy my free time, but the longer I stayed the longer my love for music flourished. I started out too scared to sing aloud with anyone in the room and here I am 6 years later performing in front of hundreds of people regularly because of the support I received from all the teachers.
Whether you are looking to get your kids involved in music or looking to pick up that instrument you have always wanted to try, this is the place to go.”

“My kids have been taking lessons at Staump for about 12 years now. My daughter (now 21) plays piano and guitar and my son (now 15) plays piano, drums and guitar. The environment is so welcoming, it’s almost like a big family. We couldn’t be happier.
Music lessons at Staump have contributed to my kids confidence, to their success in school, and their appreciation of life long learning; it has been a very good investment. We love Staump Music School, and we love the teachers.”
Melissa H. – Parent
