Why Choose Us?
Letter From the Executive Director, Kristin Yost
Welcome to the Centre for Musical Minds! We are thrilled that you are taking the time to read about who is educating your children, or maybe even you.
The Centre for Musical Minds was founded in 2008 by myself, Kristin Yost, M.M. and Dr. Sam Holland, who is Dean of the Meadows School of the Arts, Southern Methodist University.
Dr. Holland and I wanted to create a music lesson center to educate and excite the inner musician of students young and old. Most importantly, we want to make music (in particular, piano study) relevent to the community. We believe that there is music in every person and through music we all can lead happier, more confident and creative lives. With this focus in mind, in just three short years we more than doubled our enrollment!
The word is getting out about how rewarding music study can be at the Centre for Musical Minds. It is a fun, creative music lesson environment where piano instruction is tailored to each individual student. Our student-focused approach moves beyond just turning to the next page in a lesson book every week, it encourages students to develop their inner musical voice through solid fundamental studies combined with exciting music ranging from Bach to the Beatles and beyond. With traditional recitals, CMM Pop Showcases where students perform with a professional, live rhythm section, composition and CD production with Garageband, Lyric Writing for aspiring song-writers, group activities like African Drumming and so much more, studying music at the Centre for Musical Minds is a thrilling journey. So come join us and let us help you find your inner musician!
