 Distinguished Faculty

The Greater Richmond School of Music takes great pride in our Faculty. All of our instructors hold Music Degrees which they have received from some of the finest music schools, and have performed with major orchestras, jazz ensembles, and chamber ensembles around the country and abroad.  It should be noted that having a degree in the field of music is of utmost importance for an instructor, in order to insure that your student is being taught correctly.


 Convenient Locations!

The Greater Richmond School of Music has a number of convenient locations. Mechanicsville lessons and classes are held at our Main Studio at 9109 Dickey Drive, 23116 in the Atlee Crescent Office Village near the intersection of routes 301 & 295.  Richmond lessons and classes are held on the Southside at Saint Michael’s Episcopal School at 10510 Hobby Hill Road, 23235 and in the Museum District at Saint Benedict School at 3100 Grove Avenue, 23221.

In addition to these locations, GRSM also provides extra-curricular music education at various schools in the Richmond area (including the West End), and there are often lesson slots available to the public after those schools’ students have been scheduled.  Please give us a call at 804-442-6158 for more information.

In addition to the above physical locations, all of GRSM’s instructors have been offering LIVE ONLINE lessons during the COVID-19 school closures.



Each semester, music recitals are planned for all registered students who are interested in performing.  Visitors are always welcome at our recitals!

The GRSM Spring 2019 Recitals were held on Sunday, May 19th at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, 1101 Forest Ave., Richmond, VA and we were thrilled to hear the wonderful performances that we have come to expect from our students!

Please visit our YouTube Channel to view our students’ splendid performances in our Spring Recital – May 2019!

We would like to thank St. Matthew’s for allowing us the use of their wonderful church once again, as our venue.
