Company/organization description

The New Old School of Music's team is passionate about helping every child and adult develop a lifelong love for music and reach their full potential- whether it is to reach Julliard level or play to sooth their soul. On a market saturated by "one-size-fits-all" music instructions, we believe in customizing and adapting the lessons to fit every student’s individual needs, including children with special needs who can't find adaptive music lessons anywhere else.

Tell us about the entrepreneurial milestones you accomplished?

In spite of all the pandemic challenges, growth happened the minute NOSOM pivoted to all virtual instruction. We discovered that switching to Zoom lessons helped our faculty not only continue to offer lessons and support learning, but also connecting with music students from all over the world (Norway, Romania, France, Canada, Switzerland, Great Britain). We were able to engage people from around the world to join us for fun, educational programs, which were broadcasted live on social media.
