Metro Music Makers began with one piano teacher, Allison Jarrell, who started teaching in-home piano lessons in 1998. (To learn more about Allison’s story as a musician and business owner, watch this!)
Allison is now the owner and president of Metro Music Makers, one of the premier private music education and music therapy providers in homes in Atlanta, Chicago, and Athens, and online everywhere!
Since beginning with a focus on in-home private instruction, Metro Music Makers has expanded to offer our services online all over the country, and to schools and healthcare providers as well. Our team of trained, dedicated and passionate teachers have all received extensive training in teaching online and in-person, and they bring their passion for music and education into homes and lives everywhere. Our mission is to extend the benefits of musical ability to people of all ages and abilities through superior music instruction and therapy. Our students can study virtually any instrument, and we offer multiple performance opportunities throughout the year, including traditional recitals, festivals and community events, as well as virtual recitals and showcases for our online students.
We believe that music is for everyone, and that any individual is capable of learning how to play an instrument regardless of age, gender, skill level, disability and ethnic background. To ensure that we uphold the highest standards in music education, we provide a professional development program for our instructors to cover topics related to music and the fine arts, teaching music, learning styles, child development, online teaching, and business basics for professional musicians.
