The mission of Prattland Music Adventures is to provide top-quality, engaging, and fun private and small group music instruction at great prices for students of all ages (starting at age 15 months in one of our MusikGarten programs for a parent and their child). We provide our lessons in a convenient location so parents don't need to just "hang around" waiting for their student(s) to finish, but can do something productive. Parents can run do some shopping at The Outlets at Traverse Mountain, pick up some groceries at the new Harmon’s grocery store, get their nails or hair done, or take advantage of a spa (these are all located just three minutes away at the Terrace at Traverse Mt.).
One of our goals at Prattland Music Adventures is to get students performing as quickly as possible, because performing music is really cool & fun! Another one of our goals is to create and nurture musicians by providing the resources and opportunities needed for success, and to encourage all of our students to strive for excellence. These characteristics benefit students way beyond the field of music.
Come give us a try, and you'll experience the difference! Sign up here.
