Music Works Community, in the Valley since 1974, relocated to its current facility in the North Central Corridor in 1996. A use permit and variance from the City of Phoenix allow this corner residential property that fronts on Bethany Home Road to house a music school: 2,500 square feet of the residence is dedicated to studio space.
MasterClasses are held at this Bethany Home location each quarter. The main studio accommodates 4 – 6 students with instructor for group instructional opportunities. This space has a Schimmel grand piano and a Roland digital piano interfaced with a sound system. In addition, the PRELUDE Piano Program holds weekly small group piano lessons and piano discovery classes in this space; seven keyboards, a large gathering drum and many other instruments provide young children with a variety of age-appropriate musical experiences.
MWC has three teaching studios. A Music Education Tech-Time lab, equipped with three pianos interfaced with ChromeBooks and iPads, is an integral part of the academic school year piano program.
