Friends of LSM
"We are very pleased with the exceptional quality of music education that LSM provides to our daughter. She has been taking piano lessons for about five years and has added violin lessons for a year. She has grown as a person with increased levels of confidence and motivation in learning and performing piano and violin. LSM has high caliber teachers and a variety of performance opportunities. The entire staff is dedicated to the success of its students, especially director Shiho Vogel who offers feedback after every performance." - Eric from Cedar Grove NJ
"Before coming to LSM, I studied four instruments for a total 30 years. I am very familiar with music schools and university music lessons. LSM is on par with the best teachers I ever had - which is why both myself and my boys take lessons here. Whether you're a toddler, teen, or adult following a new passion, LSM is the best you'll find." - Ruthann from Fairfield, NJ
