Sonja Arndt


My passion is art and I strive to carry this over to my students! There is a huge reward for those who finish an art piece and I just love seeing that twinkle in my students eyes! Art is a language spoken that is intimate and personal between the artist and the viewer. It’s a road you start walking that’s never ending and rewarding! I love teaching art!”

Come and join us and deal in the fun of piano lessons!”

“I just love the saxophone! From clear bright classics to husky blues and silky jazz- the sax has a unique edginess. You and your sax become one voice when you play. It’s incredible! I want my students to experience that thrill, too. That’s what makes me want to be a coach.”

Lana Coetzee


“I always remind myself on a Sunday night that you have 50+ kids who can’t wait to see you tomorrow, that’s pretty special don’t you think? And that impact is what I strive for every week.”
