I’d recommend Sage because – my child’s social awkwardness and initial resistance to music class nothwithstanding – his teacher quickly developed a good rapport with him.

Although the school’s approach to music is, I think, fundamentally serious, the teachers wear their learning lightly – the tone of the school is unpretentious, unstuffy, unrushed, friendly.  This tone – and my and my son’s comfort with the school – is helped by the fact that a little time is left for talk before and after lessons.  – Paul J.
