The Music Department at Inna’s HOF provides students with a foundation in music which is one of the most valuable things a parent can do. Studies show that when students take part in music classes, their social and cognitive skills are impacted in extremely positive ways. Music facilitates learning, instills respect and pride, and increases self-esteem and positive social interaction. Discover our wonderfully creative and innovative collection of music classes that will be the start of your child’s lifelong journey with music. We host both group classes and private classes:
