Faces of Fairfax City: Moon School of Music
“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.” -Plato
Summer break may be here, but creative learning and inspiration should continue with music education that is both fun and stimulating. Enroll your child (or yourself!) at Moon School of Music with piano, strings, or voice lessons and nourish a bourgeoning love of music that will last a lifetime. Lessons can be private, semi-private, or group. And if you prefer, zoom lessons are also available.
Moon School of Music is celebrating their 6-year anniversary this month! Look for a fantastic in-person faculty concert this fall!
