I've had nothing but horrible experiences with the administration of this school. Apparently their executive director is new - I miss the old one.

As much as my daughter loved her teacher and Tuneful class, I dreaded having to communicate

My 10 year old son has been taking piano classes at TBMS for two years. Unlike some of the other music schools I called, the women in charge of children's piano classes cared that we found the exact right teacher for him. The piano teachers there are all quite different. The first one he had toured a lot and so there was a lack of continuity. However, it was no problem for him to change to a different teacher and the results have been great. The other music schools I called, such as Greenwich House, just mentioned what time slots were available without even describing the teachers. Third Street Music School did not even bother to call me back.
He recently participated in their perform-a-thon, which is a recital/fund raiser they do every year. It was a good opportunity for the students to perform in front of an audience, but also quite relaxed and not at all pressured. They seem to care that their students take pleasure in being there.

Pros: Let you try different teachers until you find the right one.

Cons: None.

There Tuneful Sequence program is wonderful and both my children thrived there. However, please be warned about their suzuki program. It is a totally different management then their regular music programs and they are horrible. They do not have the children's best interest at heart. We wanted our son who is 3 to have an great first experience but the teachers are young, inexperienced and do not condone a nuturing, safe enviroment for young children to learn. We are taking our children to School for Strings where the reputation supercedes that of Turtle Bay's suzuki program.

Pros: Great Orff Program run by Patti Oronato

Cons: Terribly managed Suzuki program for young children

I guess there's a reason the Turtle Bay Music Schools has been around for over eighty years. Their knowledgeable instructors, friendly staff and impressive facilities make for a great musical learning environment. See Uppereast.com for more information.
