What Our Students Say

  • We started with Kollari 3 years ago playing piano with school director Mimosa. She’s a teacher and musician from God. If you are looking for professional approach, build good music taste, personal touch, good relationship between teacher/student and nice musical atmosphere don’t doubt – try Kollari

    Inna Froimovich

  • The Kollari family is dedicated to providing a great experience in music education. They care about their students. My family has been taking music lessons at Kollari for several years. Thanks to the great teachers at Kollari, my kids have completed several RCM levels, have acquired a great appreciation for learning music, and have had many opportunities to perform. Their teachers are professional and dedicated. Fantastic facilities. Great concerts year after year. The string orchestra is great!

    T. P.

  • Staff are kind, courteous, professional, and they make learning about music fun. I’m not sure if there is an instrument they can’t handle – I’m just amazed at all the talent in just one place. They hold annual concerts at professional venues also, which gives the kids a true performance experience. What I like the most is that there has been a good balance of focus on the RC material, mixed with popular music, which has really made learning fun.

    Robert Triffo

  • Not only does the Kollari Institute Of Music provide excellent place of practice and learning but also teacher-student relationships that are genuinely invested in the development of skill.

    Stephanie B

  • Both my children attend Kollari and are progressing well. We are very happy with level of attention and care given towards our children’s instructions. I would strongly recommend Kollari to any parent interested in enrolling their children in music lessons.

    Sandro Pelaccia

  • When an Institute such as Kollari Institute of Music can take an international student who is learning to speak english, has zero knowledge of music, severe stage fright and teach them to play and perform that speaks volumes as to the level of professionalism and knowledge the teachers have.
    I love the variety of programs that are offered at the school. Kollari Institute of Music has allowed me to fulfill my dreams of singing in a band by teaching me how to sing, read music and play various instruments at my age. If you think you’re to old to learn YOU’RE NOT! I’m living proof!
    Thank you Dr. and Mrs. Kollari for making my dreams come true and for making all us students feel like family.

    Mari Faraone

  • It’s smart choice to learn music here.

    Julia Xu

  • We are beyond pleased with the progress our children have made since starting their piano, vocal and drum lessons here. The teachers are passionate about what they do and it is reflected in their teaching. You can feel the love for music just walking through the door. We know we made the right choice choosing Kollari Institute of Music for our children.

    Sonya Zachariah

  • This school demonstrates a very strong commitment to music education. My children have been students of the Kollari’s for almost 10 years and without any doubt, they are by far, the best in the business! They have always encouraged my children to seek their potential and to never give up! Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Kollari for all that you have done and for all that you will continue to do!

    Linda Vitti

  • I give this school a 10! Kollari has developed an incredible music learning community that is second to none! I really like the teachers and the principals. They really care about the kids. Our family has had a wonderful experience with Kollari Music School. The teachers here are an example in excellence. My children have flourished at this school. The education model here is a fantastic way to encourage the kids into instrument and vocal learning cycle. I would highly recommend Kollari! Awesome school! Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Kollari!
