Music for all.

Turtle Bay Music School strives to spread the transformative power of music by providing the highest quality music education and experiences to all in the community who seek them.

Turtle Bay Music School is a space to play.

At TBMS, we believe music is an integral part of daily life. We offer classes for all ages and skill levels, and our community is inclusive, fun, and focused on meeting each student’s individual needs. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a strong financial aid program, free public concerts, and community programs in public schools and senior centers, TBMS works to increase access to music education, appreciation, and performance.

Our philosophy is grounded in flexibility and attention to the individual. That means meeting the needs of each student, from scheduling and class placement to coaching and evaluation. We also offer monthly performance opportunities open to all students, plus master classes, concerts by guest artists, summer camps, and more.

For us, cultivating a nurturing, vibrant community is what music is all about: connection, support, and inspiration. We strive to stand out and make a difference. But don’t just take it from us – check out a sampling of recent testimonials below:

“Turtle Bay music school is a wonderful environment for any child or parent who enters the building. Everyone is professional and friendly and interested in the child's success. We were very fortunate to have our son accepted, and were delighted as he developed some skill in playing. His instrumental teacher was not only a skilled musician, a patient teacher, but also a very good model for Bernard.” (Lois, TBMS Parent)

“Ms. Diane is like one of the greatest teachers I’ve had. She’s so caring and supportive of me. Without her I probably wouldn’t even be in high school right now and I wouldn’t be where I am right now. I believe that I grew so much, practicing music and reading and being able to understand music, thanks to her. – (Karla, TBMS student)

“The Saturday Music Project program has had a really big impact on our family. I learn through my children that music is not just about playing an instrument. They need dedication; they learn how to respect by listening to others, and waiting for their turn. I can see that their mind is more open to possiblity.” (José, SMP parent)
