Welcome to Humlie School of Music!

HSM is a family owned music school that opened it’s doors in 1999,  with a primary goal of training up three proficient, highly qualified, and inspirational teachers. With the achievement of that first goal, HSM has poised itself to pass on its musical legacy to others.

Since then, HSM  has musically inspired hundreds of students, helping them to find the right instrument, then equipping toward proficiency of that instrument, and finally, encouraging them to share their music with others whether in an ensemble or on stage before a live audience.

In 1999 HSM had one teacher with two handfuls of students, today we have thirteen teachers who all embrace the culture of HSM and are ready to share it with you from our family to yours. 

Our motto... The family that plays together stays together.
