Testimonial

  • My children both started at Milder Musical Arts at 18 months of age. My daughter is now a senior and my son is a sophomore in high school. Between the two, they take piano, guitar and voice. I highly recommend the school to any parent interested in a serious musical education provided in a joyful, nurturing environment. The program is solid and the teachers are amazing.

    Beverly has a gift for recognizing and hiring teachers. These are not simply musicians who teach for some extra cash. They are trained, talented professionals who are passionate about music and have the skills to pass it on to their students. Through the years and many conversations in the waiting area, I have always been amused that everyone wants to keep their teacher. I will even admit to being concerned when a teacher change was necessary due to an out-of-state move or maternity leave. I have never been disappointed and neither have my children! Milder Musical Arts is worth it!

  • When I first moved to St. Louis, I worked at Milder Musical Arts. Not only was it a great place to teach, but it is a great place to learn. As a music teacher at Holy Redeemer Catholic School, I apply many of the techniques I learned from Beverly to my every day teaching. This is a great school and I highly recommend it for your musical needs.
