About

RMT Music is a premier mobile lessons provider. That’s right-mobile! We work with school districts and adult students to provide high quality lessons and masterclasses to all. By joining forces with band, choir, and orchestral programs, our instructors are able to give lessons before, during, and after school. How convenient is that!?

Lessons: Our dedicated instructors make differences in the lives of our students on a daily basis. Lessons occur weekly and range from 30-60 minutes. All lessons are currently virtual. We will resume in-person lessons when it is safe to do so.

Masterclasses Series: We work with school districts and companies to present a series of masterclasses that is as unique as the students we teach. We cover everything from marching band techniques to reed and mouthpiece care, taught by experienced faculty at the top of their field.

Scholarships and Student Sponsorships: Our goal at RMT Music is reach as many students as possible, and a great way to accomplish this is through the creation and implementation of a music scholarship and student sponsorship program. Incredible things happen when RMT, Music Directors, and the community join forces!

Adult Lessons: Are you an adult student interested in learning more about lessons? RMT Music works with students in all stages of their musical growth.

Learning music are about much more than mastering your instrument. Music cultivates essential skills that students can apply to all aspects of their life, including self confidence, coordination, and concentration (just to name a few!). We are here to help students cultivate their creative side and become the best possible versions of themselves. It’s that simple.
