This is an exceptional music school. The staff is top notch and the owner cares more about music than the bottom line.
My first child started almost 10 years ago in their Kindermusik program. The program teaches music fundamentals to kids 4-7 so they develop a proper foundation for a successful music career. She is now 15 and has performed at NJPAC as part of the New Jersey Youth Symphony, performed in Carnegie Hall as part of the Golden Key Festival and has several other musical accomplishments that we can credit to Calderone.
My younger daughter is 7 and after completing the Kindermusik program has gone on to her first year of private guitar lessons. She already knows how to play a couple beginner songs. I hold Calderone in very high regard and would recommend them to anyone.
One last thing that I touched upon earlier is the owners commitment to music and the kids. Over the years at this school I have seen minimum increases in the rates even though prices of everything else have gone crazy. Also, my wife and I wanted to start vocal lessons for our older daughter at a young age, Professor Calderone basically refused, stating that it was not good for her vocal chords and could do permanent damage. She could have taken our money but simply cares too much about the kids. I have nothing but respect for such a class act. Other schools were willing to teach her with no mention of potential harm just to get the money. I commend Professor Calderone for her integrity.
Just a great school!
