About Us

We believe effort is more important than talent, age is just a number, and the highest purpose of music is to uplift the human soul.

Founded on this philosophy by Casey von Neumann in 2002, Eclectic Music provides Atlanta opportunities for personal growth, self expression, and collaboration through music, for people of all ages and musical backgrounds.

Needless to say, after over 15 years of lessons, classes, parties, jam sessions, workshops, camps, recitals, and accidentally dropping picks inside of guitars, we’ve grown just a bit since the early days of Eclectic Music. From a single studio and one teacher, we are proud to now offer music experiences to a few hundred students, from a few dozen teachers, at three in-town studios (Virginia-Highland, Morningside, Inman Park), and in-home!

All the while, maintaining that one singular vision of our foundation: to be the best music school in Atlanta as measured by the strength of our community, the achievement of our students, and the joy of everyone involved.

Ready to take the next step in making your family's musical dreams come true?

Call us anytime, Monday-Friday between 10am and 3pm, to speak to one of the following real live human beings!

We’d love to learn all about your interests, desires, and goals and curate a tailor-made experience in music, just for you.

Isn’t it about time for A JOYFUL experience in music?

No worries. The same lovely humans answer our emails too!

We care about finding the right fit.

The human connection is very important in music lessons.

The teacher and student have to be compatible in temperament and musical interests. The teacher has to be able to provide just the right degree of structure, rigor, and reward for each student.

Our first step is choosing to work with versatile, experienced, personable teachers for whom music education is a priority. The very best teachers have established procedures that ensure success, yet they can adapt their approach to suit an individual student. 

Our second step is finding out about you! That way, we can find the best possible teacher for your musical, personal, and logistical needs. 

We don't stop there. After your first lesson, we will check in with you to see how things went, and will continue to connect with you periodically to see whether your needs are still being met. If a change of teacher or instrument is necessary, we will help to make that transition as smooth as possible. 

Along the way, our students have the opportunity to perform at recitals, festivals, open mics, and more. Making Eclectic Music more than just music lessons, we are a community of musicians, a community that you will become part of.
