4. A proven track record of excellence.





Over 12,000 students taught, and voted "Best in Education" by Frisco Style Magazine. Visit our testimonial  page to see what our students are saying.

Every year, aspiring teachers start their own studio, and a year or two later they're closed.

The Frisco School of Music and Performing Arts has a proven track record of offering quality lessons, year round. Our full time mission is teaching music, acting, art and musical theatre. Learn what YOU enjoy!

We teach a wide variety of styles, from classical piano to rock and metal, sacred to modern pop and jazz music, vocals and singing, method and improv acting, mixed media and cartoon animation/flip book art, plus musical theatre staging, blocking, choreography, sequencing and Broadway routines.

5. A comfortable waiting room for parents and family members.





Instead of waiting in a music retail store showroom or a cramped skinny hallway, our families enjoy a spacious, professional waiting room with comfortable chairs, kids coloring table station, Wi-Fi, and video class monitors.

We also provide observation windows on every door so that you can watch your child's lesson and class while you wait.

​Or, if you prefer, you can sit in on  lessons anytime you like (for private music students).

6. Fully stocked lesson studios.





Our rooms are stocked with everything you need for lessons, including amps, stereos, full acoustic drum kits, keyboards, pianos, mics, staging, mirrors, professional art supplies and more. Plus, teachers have an iPad in every studio to incorporate fun learning apps and sample video examples, etc. We have spent thousands of dollars on our facility to offer sound-resistant studios and observation windows.

7. Performance opportunities at each level of study.





Other schools only offer 2 shows per year?   Maybe just 1 show? Charge extra fees,  require families to purchase tickets?

NOT HERE!

Our students have the opportunity to perform in more than 19 yearly events in music, rock school band, acting, art, dance & musical theatre!

The level of confidence you get performing cannot be achieved anywhere else. Plus, preparing for a performance motivates students to work toward a goal.

MUSIC: Our beginning group music lab classes have a Group Student Performance Week for parents six times per year, and private lesson students have the option of participating in our Achievement Graduations, Coffee House Music Shows, Yearly Theory Test and Musicfest.

Our Rock School Band Series is for students who want many more performances, including weekly Band rehearsals, several yearly Band Blowout Shows and all of the above mentioned performance opportunities as well. See our Performance and Events page for details on these events.

ACTING, ART, & MUSICAL THEATRE: Our students perform in three yearly Celebration of the Arts Variety Shows featuring all performing arts departments in a grand gala show in our performing arts auditorium on campus at FriscoPAC with professional lighting, sound, video and art gallery. Also students perform for parents in our 6 yearly Group Student Performance weeks for parents throughout the year.

pre-ballet selections.

The teachers are great.  Each are patient and have a full understanding
about their subject and how to teach it.  Furthermore, the admin staff are just as wonderful.  My son had problems finding his niche.  
They worked with us to help him find which instrument excited him.

Our son has been a student with the school for nearly 2 years and we couldn't be more pleased with his progression on the violin. We recently got to see a live performance of him and many of the other students of the school and what talent!
