    Why Choose Us?
    Letter From the Executive Director, Gillian Perkins

    Welcome to the Salem School of Music! I am so excited you came upon our webpage and are taking the time to read about who is educating your children, or maybe even you.

    Salem School of Music was founded in 2006 by myself, Gillian Perkins. I wanted to create a music lesson center to educate and excite the lively melodies of students young and old. Most importantly, we want to make music relevant to the community. While our initial focus was providing superior piano instruction by professional teachers at an accessible price, we have expanded to include flute and voice studies based upon our belief that there is music in every person and through music we all can lead happier, more confident and creative lives. With this focus in mind, we've more than tripled our enrollment!

    The word is getting out about how rewarding music study can be at Salem School of Music. It is a fun, creative music lesson environment where music instruction is tailored to each individual student. Our student-focused approach moves beyond just turning to the next page in a lesson book every week, it encourages students to develop their inner musical voice through solid fundamental studies combined with exciting music ranging from classical to contemporary. With bi-annual traditional recitals, engaging weekly lessons, and fun summer activity programs, studying music at Salem School of Music is an amazing journey. So come join us and let us help you find your inner musician!
