 About Us   

The First Note


Isn't it easier to focus, be creative, and relax in a space that's not only functional, but warm and inviting? We think we designed Parallel Sound to look and feel more like a home than an office. Then, we added a few extras to help make your time here as enjoyable as possible.

Teach In Harmony


Our teachers have a wide gamut of styles from which they can teach and we have a wide range of teachers from different stylistic backgrounds.  We hire a wide range of teachers to provide students an option should they want to study in a particular genre. 

The Future Sounds Good


Students who study musical instruments learn the self-discipline of time management and that alone is a valuable tool in everyday life.  There is not enough that can be said about the lack of art/music in our school programs.  Music and artistic appreciation is the cultural backbone of any modern society and that enrichment is now lacking in our education system.  Shouldn’t children today know who Mozart & the Beatles were?
