The Kanack School of Musical Artistry has had a rich history in the Rochester community for over 20 years. We provide students of all ages a warm, disciplined, and non-competitive environment in which to develop their musical artistry. We offer private lessons in violin, viola, cello, piano, voice, flute, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, ukulele, and banjo. Because the school was founded on a combination of the philosophy of Creative Ability Development and the Suzuki Method, we strongly believe groups classes are crucial to the growth of musical artistry. Any day of the week students have access to many classes. CAD improvisation classes, Suzuki repertoire classes, orchestra, fiddle, bluegrass bands, music theory and composition, chorus, opera and musical theater scenes, and piano duets are all available to our students. These classes not only help to develop their musical talent, but also to develop social skills that will aid them in life. We offer our group classes at no addition charge to private lesson tuition so that every student has the same access to these important opportunities.
KSMA also offers a wide range of summer camps including traditional orchestral and chamber music, musical theater, fiddle, adult chamber music, and fiddle.
KSMA offers scholarship and barter opportunities to students in need to ensure that no student is turned away due to their economic circumstances.
Creative Ability + Music = Musicality
Musicality + Technical Facility = Artistry
At the Kanack School of Musical Artistry we strive to create true artists. These are students who are not only able to play their instruments or use their voice at a very high level, but are able to use those skills to express their own musical personality with confidence and creativity.
