Dean and Leanne Cummings have a desire to create an environment where high quality, holistic music instruction happens every day. It is our goal to ensure that the atmosphere of our music studio is encouraging, energizing and purposeful for our teaching team, our students and their families. We utilize the leadership and business management experience we gained in a corporate environment as a lever to strengthen and coach our staff team, continuously improve our operations, mature our organization and, in turn be the best music school we can be for our students and their families.   

We are founded on the principle that all music instruction should include music exploration, performing, ear training and rhythm training while integrating a variety of creative teaching tools and techniques.  We have a wide range of teachers with various levels of education and experience.  Our teachers find incredible fulfillment in teaching music and the vast majority of them have completed (or are in the process of completing) a university and/or college level music education.

We are convinced that all musicians must be “learners” on a life-long adventure of discovery.  It is our desire to inspire every one of our students by placing them with teachers who know how to bring out their best! This journey often begins with a 3-lesson trial package before you commit to weekly lessons.    

Crescendo Music Studios has grown from 80 students to over 600 students.  When Presto Music Studio and then Toadstool Music closed their doors in 2014 and 2016 respectively, they sent their student base to us allowing us to offer even more diverse music programming.  It has been our immense pleasure getting to know many new families through this experience.

We are so appreciative of all the experiences, feedback and insight that has brought us to where we are today and we hope you will choose Crescendo Music Studios for your music learning needs!  Call us today at 780-570-5699.
