I have been learning to play the cello at Prestige Music Studios for over a year now and I am very happy with their services ! My instructor is wonderful and is helping me reach my dream of becoming a cellist. I recommend Prestige to anyone looking to take private music lessons!

I have been an adult student at Prestige Music Studios for over a year and I love it !! My instructor Rita is wonderful and is helping me achieve a life long dream of becoming a cellist. Office staff has been very helpful and professional. I think their lesson fees are more than fair and I would recommend Prestige to anyone needing private musice lessons!

I never took a lesson at Prestige but I did pay the ridiculously overpriced $40 fee to "get me in the system". I ended up not being able to take lessons because I found out I was moving. When I called to tell them that I had to move, they criticized me, called me immature, and literally yelled at me for wasting their time. Mrs. Brenner is one of the most unprofessional and immature owners i have ever come in contact with. I suggest you turn the other way.

The teachers are not truly Suzuki trained. To become a certified Suzuki teacher, you must endure weeks of intense training. Prestige claims to train their teachers in the Suzuki method, but in actuality they just hand the teachers one of Suzuki's books to read. As an instructor for Prestige, they had me teaching Suzuki lesssons even before I received their so called "training."

They also require the teachers sign over their teaching rights exclusively to Prestige. That means the teacher cannot accept new students in their own private studio if the teacher needed more of an income outside or Prestige, placing a glass ceiling on the instructor's career. Prestige pays the instructors HALF of what the instructors would make teaching on their own.

Prestiqe also had me teaching beginning piano lessons when I had little piano experience and told them I was uncomfortable teaching piano.

The establishment is fraudulent to both the students and its employees. I believe its only a matter of months until their doors our closed. I am now teaching on my own and am extremely happy and successful, and I am passionate about my students. Please go with an individual private instructor, and save yourself money and heartache.

Pros: None

Cons: Lies about credentials, unfair to music teachers/students

I called this business to inquire about lessons and they charged me a fee on the first phone call. Since I live in the neighborhood I heard some terrible reviews and decided to cancel. The owner refused to issue refund even though we never stepped our foot into this studio. From this point on it just went even further downhill. After we canceled one of the music teachers called to tell us that she will be late for the first lesson (nobody even bothered to tell her that we canceled). What is even worse, we started getting spammed by unsolicited e-mails from the owner in regards to her political involvements (some even asking for money). Tried to resolve the refund issue and spamming of my email in civilized way, but got nothing but arrogance and terrible rudeness from the owner. When I complained about email issue, she even went out of her way to look into my voter registration record. I have never had such a horrible experience in dealing with business. Please take my advice and stay away from it. It was a nightmare.

Being a musician myself, and having taken Suzuki lessons for several years as a youngster, I was very excited to enroll my 5 year old son in Suzuki Piano lessons. I was looking forward to a great experience that we could bond over. Thanks to Prestige Music Studios, this first experience was MORE THAN A DISAPPOINTMENT. The first teacher we had (only 2 lessons) was 15 minutes late each time. The lessons are only 30 minutes long, so you can see how this poses a problem. We were then abruptly assigned another teacher who again was always late. He canceled several times, and then would promise a make up lesson, and never schedule it. I don?t even know how many lessons I paid for that we didn?t actually get due to the teacher either being very late or canceling. All the while, Prestige Music Studios is more than happy to bill you, but makes it difficult to pay because you can?t pay by phone or online. They email you a million invoices a month, but then make it a huge hassle to pay them. They also charge you for group lessons whether you attend them or not, and make them difficult to attend because they are inflexible with the time slots. A few months the only group time slot was scheduled at the same time as my son?s private lesson, so he would have had to skip his private lesson in order to attend the group lesson, but we would be charged for both! The final straw was when my son and I showed up for our lesson, waited 45 minutes and no one showed up. We received no call saying that the teacher was canceling. We sat in the lobby for 45 minutes and no one tried to help us or ask us what was going on. It made me furious!The worst part of the whole thing is that my 5 year old son practiced very hard throughout the week, only to be disappointed that his lesson was canceled over and over again.This establishment is POORLY managed, and I would not recommend it to anyone. Find yourself a nice private lessons teacher and save yourself the headache!

We couldn't be happier. Our teacher has our children practicing, which they have never done. The owners are very helpful and have worked with us to find fun music and good things for our kids to enjoy - they actually practice now! The teacher has a degree and a lot of training from the school. We highly recommend Prestige Studios to our friends - we have enjoyed the lessons and the people!

After enrolling our daughter in piano lessons we were bombarded with multiple emails from Prestige Music Studios (PMS) advertising their services. Apparently we were automatically enrolled in multiple mail lists without our knowledge. Then the nightmare of petty fees began. My favorite are the late fees for books that we never received. In addition, group lesson fees were mandatory even though we never planned on attending and they were cancelled frequently. The worst of all is the unpleasant exchanges that we had to endure with the owner to end the lessons and settle the billings. For four months now, I have repeatedly tried to remove myself from their multiple mail list without success. Instead of working on improving their customer service by listening to their customers, PMS is more interested in collecting petty fees and sending mass emails. The worst experience in music lessons that we have ever endured. Avoid PMS, the middleman and work directly with the music instructor.
