Greater Richmond School of Music (GRSM) has been family owned and operated since its inception in 2010.  GRSM was created by professional musicians, for musicians of every ability, and we consider every member of our faculty and every one of our students part of our extended family.  From the time you make contact with us, you will recognize this, and you will be welcomed into our family with enthusiasm and grace.

Since every one of our instructors has a Music Degree, you can be assured that you or your child will receive the correct instruction for the relevant instrument.  We have often experienced students who were taught by unqualified instructors and thus ended up with poor habits, and at times even injuries resulting from such. This then takes a great deal of time and effort to reverse poor training and re-learn in order to attain success. We at GRSM want to avoid that unpleasant process, so we believe in doing it right from the very beginning. Whether in private, semi-private or group lessons, each student receives instruction specifically designed for their own learning style and ability, and will experience the expertise of not just a professional musician, but of a dedicated role model.

If you are looking for a quick fix, instant band in a box, fun at the expense of technique program, you will not find that at GRSM.  Our instructors take great care to form their charges with skill and patience, and by doing so, groom musicians that are encouraged to perform in small and large group settings when they are at a point that they will experience true success and deep enjoyment.  We now invite you to have a look at the many programs that we offer and to welcoming your family into the GRSM family soon!

Group classes for piano, guitar, ukulele, violin, viola, cello and upright bass provide a high-quality foundation for musical study. Taught in a small group setting, these classes are an alternative to traditional private lessons and offer an exciting and affordable approach to beginning musical instruction. Musical Theater is a group combining vocal performances with acting and brings with it great joy for performers and audiences alike.  Learn more about our Group Classes.

Homeschool Music Programs

The Greater Richmond School of Music offers various programs for our homeschooling community including band, choir, strings ensembles, group piano, group guitar, group violin and private lessons. Through our Homeschool Music Survey, we discovered that many homeschoolers actually prefer classes at “traditional” after-school hours, and so we have scheduled our programs to suit the needs of those from whom we received responses.  As a result, some of these programs are offered during the day and some later in the afternoon.  If you find that the times do not suit your family, we invite you to take our survey at the Homeschool Music page.  Multiple family member discounts are available.  Read more detailed information about each of our Homeschool Music Programs.
