Get to know Mike Kurtz

Hey, folks! From the beginning, I found myself on a musical journey due to my parents.  Growing up, we had guitars and a piano for us to experiment with at home.

I chose the trumpet and then piano to get started with, playing in the school band and eventually adding string and electric bass to the list.  That earned me many

friends and garage band experiences.  Teaching was the natural progression as my mom was an elementary school teacher in NY.  The best part of teaching for me is

watching students progress, building confidence and getting excited as they learn to love music in a more meaningful way.  As I was learning to teach I was also learning 

how to entertain children with Magic, Balloon Art, Face Painting, Foam Parties and more.  You can learn about my company at
