At Lyriq Music School we believe in nurturing the whole musician from technique and musical knowledge to
interpretation and performance.
By creating a collaborative environment between students and teachers we cultivate our students' musical abilities alongside their confidence and happiness.
Our teachers are highly qualified academically and also masters of their instruments. We strive to hire the best and support their growth as teachers in their professional development.
