John Lennon Educational Tour Bus

On October 23, 2013, we had the opportunity to host the John Lennon Bus at the Morrison Family YMCA!  What a great day!  Dozens of Charlotte families got the chance to meet the JLB crew, tour the mobile studio, play their musical equipment, and see some of the great videos that have been recorded on this one-of-a-kind music studio on wheels!

We were excited to have Victor Wooten at our studio for a private clinic.  Our students and local musician friends were thrilled to have the opportunity to meet him face to face and learn some new techniques.

So honored to have had some of Contemporary Jazz's BEST visit our studio over the past year!  Keiko Matsui and Paul Brown have made appearances at Ballantyne School of Music, and some have even jammed with our instructors and students!!  It's so wonderful when professional musicians take time out of their busy schedules to share with our students!

Be sure to check back right HERE, to find out about upcoming guest appearances and master classes.  We have some surprises for 2017!

Welcome to all of our new students at our Ballantyne School of Music South location in Indian Land, South Carolina!  It's been a rockin' week, and we're looking forward to making beautiful music with our new South families!!

What a FUN musical field trip we had with these energetic and inquisitive pre-K students!  

If you are interested in scheduling your own field trip for your daycare, school, or homeschool group, be sure to give us a call!  We have times available between 10 a.m. and noon Monday - Thursday.

Call 980-819-6998, to schedule.

New Year... New Gear?

See things more clearly in 2020 with music lessons from one of our passionate and skilled music instructors!  Remember... you can't get one-on-one attention and ask questions, when you're relying on a YouTube video for instruction!  ;)
