About Us

Centre for Musical Minds is a piano school in Frisco, Texas that has been nurturing talent and providing a culture of achievement since 2008. Created by Kristin Yost and Dr. Sam Holland, the aim for CMM has always been high standards and rewarding experiences that create meaningful connections. CMM provides piano lessons for all ages and stages with Certified Royal Conservatory faculty members and Nationally Certified Teachers of Music where lessons are primarily taught on top quality grand pianos. Additionally, we offer guitar lessons, voice lessons, beginning violin lessons and songwriting/production workshops.

CMM is the first music school in Frisco to incorporate AI in the learning process. With technology doing some of the heavy lifting, our students are able to learn more music, at a faster rate and more thoroughly, than any other music school in the area.

In addition to being results-driven, we’re a warm learning environment where inspired and caring teachers come together to guide each student to become the best version of themselves. Through our five pillars of what it means to have a musical mind (literacy, interpretation, performance, arranging or composing and theory), our experienced and highly trained teachers aim for extraordinary results in every student. Whether that means learning music for fun or to prepare for the possibility of a career as a musician, we explore more, create more and perform more than most schools.

If you are looking for a music school that has high standards, an incredible faculty of teachers, a variety of musical experiences and a commitment to the community, we encourage you to contact us today!
