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 April 5th.  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!

What they have to say about us

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. - Christina H.

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!  - Peggy P.
