Testimonials

"Hoff-Barthelson has teachers who are superb musicians and really devoted to kids, from the little ones who are tentatively playing for the first time to accomplished seniors. The school is devoted not just to education but also to performance and playing in groups, whether in one of three orchestras, an unlimited number of classical ensembles, and jazz and rock bands. Students at Hoff are benefited in many ways...social connections, passion for music, and even college admissions. Our own kids have loved the school and benefited greatly."
