Opus119’s faculty team is comprised of outstanding musicians trained in many prestigious universities, colleges, and conservatories. They hold undergraduate and graduate degrees from institutions such as Yale, Curtis, Johns Hopkins, Juilliard, New England Conservatory, Manhattan School of Music, to name a few. However, these academic credentials are not the only reason our faculty team produces remarkable results in development of our students.

Our team understands that every child is different and not one teaching style fits everyone. Through communication, they share ideas; it often sheds light on matters from different point of view, allowing them to explore various facets of teaching. They tirelessly map out student’s curriculum plan to assure a healthy, efficient, and effective progress. This objectivity combined with passion for teaching and musical excellence is the reason Opus119 have become one of the most respected music institution since its foundation in 2003!
