Brentwood’s Premier Music School Since 1984

PRIVATE MUSIC INSTRUCTION, THEATRE CLASSES
AND EARLY CHILDHOOD MUSIC

"High-quality music program! Your child will train from top musician teachers!
It's why we call our town 'Music City'!" - Stewart D.

Here are just some of the instruments and classes we teach:

Piano, Guitar, Ukulele, Violin, Flute, Oboe, Drums, Percussion, Voice, Songwriting, Zoom Percussion, Acting.

Private Music Instruction

Piano, Guitar, Drums/Percussion, Flute, Oboe, and Voice lessons are offered with an individualized approach to music instruction. Your lessons will be tailored specifically to you or your child’s skill level and areas of interest.

Personally Matched Teachers

Our teachers are all professional, highly skilled musicians who care about their students and collectively have over 200 years of experience. We make sure that each student is assigned the teacher that is best matched to their needs and goals.

Center Stage Productions

Candice and Tadd offer a variety of opportunities for your child to get on the stage and in the spotlight. Each class finishes with a professional showcase or fully-staged production! All shows are family friendly. Everyone gets a part!

Early Childhood Music

Next session starts January 18th.  A great deal of research shows that early exposure to music helps children learn to speak more clearly, develop a larger vocabulary, and strengthen emotional and social skills. Come join the fun!

Centre Stage Productions

WHERE KIDS BUILD CONFIDENCE BOTH ON AND OFF THE STAGE

We feature age-appropriate shows that both our performers and audiences will enjoy.
We're looking forward to working with your future thespian! - Candice Himelrick, Theatre Director & Teacher

Brentwood Piano Lessons

Call us today to book your piano lessons in Brentwood!

Piano lessons are incredibly important for the development of a child's mind and logical thinking. You can trust our staff to give proper technique and direction to help with their studies. 

Your child will learn how to practice. Their ability to pick up pieces will increase over time. Piano lessons are an investment in the future success of your child's life. The earlier you begin, the better! If you are curious about what goes on in a piano lesson, contact the school of Jan Williams today to inquire. Our building is conveniently located in Brentwood, TN just near the highway.

The teachers at this music school are all extremely talented and have many years of experience. I would highly recommend anyone to this school for private lessons, theatre experience and/or having your toddler go through the early childhood music program.

How fortunate we are to have the sustained presence of Jan Williams School of Music and Theatre in Williamson County for thirty+ years. This local treasure has created opportunities for countless children and young people to explore, develop and demonstrate their musical and theatrical talents through the guidance of seasoned and dedicated teachers. Our youngest child joyfully attended an early childhood music program there that was so enriching, he later asked to take piano lessons at JWSMT. These experiences became the foundation for a lifelong avocation; at 26, he still takes great pleasure in spending hours at the piano. Thanks, Jan Williams!

Our daughter has been a part of the Jan Williams School of Music and Theatre for ten years and she has loved every minute of it. She has been involved in theatre, singing and music lessons. As she has grown and developed her abilities, the Jan Williams School has played a big role. In particular, her teacher, Erin Pickering-Gutierrez, has been a big influence and a tremendous teacher. We are so thankful for her!

I have been taking lessons for several years now, and my two teachers have both been great in their own ways. They have both helped me improve my technical and creative piano skills.

Both of my high school kids (one just off to college) have been taking Guitar lessons from Cesar since they started middle school..maybe even before that. Cesar is a very skilled, extremely enthusiastic, passionate music tutor we have come across. Kids love the teacher and the teachings. Very supportive, cooperative and lovable.We recommend Cesar and the school to anyone, anytime.

This is a convenient location with a good vibe. Ours have thrived in the music program. Kamber has a special gift for reading her students and knowing what kind of song would work with their voices, and she has truly been a beloved mentor. And Colleen has been carefully guiding our teen on learning how to project her voice without overtaxing her chords. These guys are incredible musicians. Highly recommend.

At the Jan Williams School of Music recitals, it's as much fun watching the students perform as it is watching the enthusiastic and inspirational teachers. All of the teacher's love for music and sharing that passion with their students shows in the students' excellent performances. One of my favorite 2018 Christmas recital memories was seeing the young boy drumming on garbage cans (Zoom Class) along with his enthusiastic teacher to Trans Siberian Orchestra's "Carol of the Bells." It was exhilarating!

We have so many great things to say about our experience at Jan Williams School of Music & Theater. Cesar Montecristo is our guitar instructor and I can’t express enough how grateful I am for his expertise, endless enthusiasm, and encouragement. Our son was receiving instruction from another instructor (not at this school) but wasn’t being challenged and was bored, which led to a disinterest in guitar. I reached out to Kristi at the school and after a long conversation she suggested Cesar. It was a perfect match! Cesar awakened a new love for guitar with our son and we’re excited knowing he is not only learning so much more than he was with his previous instructor but he loves playing and being challenged each week.
