When people are curious about our school they often have a lot of questions. We have many students who had the same things on their minds before they began to study with us.

See below for answers to some of the more commonly-asked questions that we receive.

We have carefully designed our programs with the needs of our many valued customers in mind, in addition to the input of countless years’ worth of experience shared between our instructors. Students are invited to participate in all our learning programs, or focus on the ones that work for them. We also afford our students flexibility as they develop. For example, it’s not uncommon for students to start with private lessons and then move to group lessons once they become comfortable and ready to take their skills to a different level. And yes! We offer Kinder Music for children nine months to five years!

We want YOU to get the most out of your lessons here, so before we get started, we want to meet you and understand your goals. This is a time for us to answer any of your questions, discuss how we can tailor a lesson plan for you, and for us to pair you with your ideal instructor. To maximize your full potential, we need to work together.

This is also a chance to discuss your responsibilities as a student, the expectations of the school and the responsibilities of the parents (if the student is a minor).

The consultation is free!

No experience is required! We excel at teaching students of all levels and backgrounds because our lessons are tailored to suit each person’s specific goals and needs.  In fact, students who are beginners have no pre-established bad habits to overcome, so they often progress quickly!

We don’t believe in delayed gratification, so we start you off playing music right away.
As your abilities develop,  we ensure the music you’re playing is challenging, fun and advances your growth as a well-rounded musician. Throughout your education, we ensure that you’re playing using proper technique and posture to achieve the best possible outcome. Much of your progress, however, depends on dedicated practice outside the classroom. We supply the tools and the blueprint but you will need to put in the work. We firmly believe that the only difference between a beginner and a master is the difficulty of the music.  As a beginner, you will play easier music, but play it well.  As you progress, the level of difficulty will increase as we want you to be rightly challenged as you continue to advance.
You will be always proud of your referral so make a friend happy! Receive a big thank-you from them and receive a $50 gift certificate from us.

Of course! We are always proud to share our specially-designed facility with newcomers and members of the public. Please understand that we can not always get up from what we are doing in order to do this effectively, so please call ahead and schedule a time with us, and someone will be waiting to meet you when you arrive.

If parents wish – and if it doesn’t distract the student’s focus – they may attend lessons with their child. This can help both parents and students learn, especially if parents are helping their children practice while at home.

While different levels of students require differing intensities of practice and instruction, it is recommended that all students come for lessons at least once a week.

During your consultation, be sure to let us know what other activities take up the student’s time, and how much time is available for practice at home.

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
