I learned all I currently know thanks to this school. I have come far in short time. Concerts hosted by this school were well coordinated.

Convenient location (lots of shops near by, including a bakery), friendly and educated staff, decent prices. Consider going here because there isn't a music school anywhere too close as well, unless you want to go to another town.

Hello. I am the owner of Menconi School of Music. I recently saw the currently posted reviews and I needed to respond.
We are no longer a music studio but a school of music, in the process of being accredited. We look forward to being able to offer a variety of academic courses as well as AP testing for music. Our building is under new ownership. It was never a run down looking building, but now under new ownership we have an expanded parking lot and new fencing/benches. Our store front has always been eye catching and we recently remodellled both our waiting area and classroom areas. My father who started the music studio with me died in May 2005 and I have been running the school on my own since then. There are no illegal business practices being done here and I would never engage in any illegal activity. In fact, it is the opposite in that other music studios/schools are not paying employer contributions to the State of NJ like we are, an issue which needs to be addresses on a grander scale. Music lessons should be W2 and not 1099. Eileen, I am glad that you are no longer coming here, for anyone who can not see the incredible opportunity here cannot be here. No other music studio, not even Monclair Music Studio at $40/half hour or Ackermanns at $35-$44 half/hour has the beautiful teaching rooms equipped with a baby grand piano, Kurzweil digital grand keyboard, and other professional grade instruments. Plus, we offer top notch recital opportunities, the most recent at the Clifton Arts Center and another one upcoming at Lambert Castle, not something thrown together in a church or in the case of Ackermann's, no recitals offered at all. And of course, as even Eileen pointed out, we always had and always will have top notch teachers. I hope that since we are not allowed to have a fresh site for our new busines Menconi School of Music and therefore stuck with Menconi Music Studio reviews, at the very least this can be posted to offer the public the truth about who we are and what we do.

Sincerely,

Annamaria Menconi, Menconi School of Music

The facutly are the only ones keeping that place open. The building itself is in poor shape, but the school is kept up. Tuition is comparable to other schools in the area. Four or five outstanding faculty members have left in recent years due to the owner's eccentricities and seemingly unfair business pracitces, which is why I no longer take my child there for lessons. Even that great girl that was always at the front desk has left - and she was one of the better teachers. Overall, the teachers are great and know their craft. That is the only reason to go there.

Overall if your trying to learn an instrument, it's a great place.
