We're Glad We Found You

We moved to Warrensburg when we were PCS’ed to Whiteman. I talked to Mr. Jim about lessons for our kids and he invited us to come out and take a free lesson. We were really impressed with the studio and how our kids came away excited about starting lessons again. We found The Music Studio on Facebook and also visited another studio and just didn’t feel like they were a good fit for us. When it comes to appreciating military families, Mr. Jim and his staff really go the extra mile to help us feel at home here!



Truly Special!

We love TMSOW! We really appreciate the calm atmosphere where our kids aren’t distracted by other activities. I especially appreciate being able to sit down and relax or go down and work out at Strive while my kids are in their lessons. Most of all I really like how everyone treats us here. Everyone takes time to greet us and I really feel like we’re not just another tuition check. My kids can work on homework or watch TV while they wait and I know that they’re always well supervised. A big shout out to Shania, too! We love how she’s always got something for my pre-school girl to do and she looks forward to “going to see Shania” every week.



Wishing We Could Be There

Myself and my daughter have had the grand pleasure of having lessons with Mr. Jim. Myself on the piano and my daughter with voice lessons. He is a fabulous instructor who truly cares about his students and raises them above what they thought they could do. I’m sad to be leaving the area because I know the great things that would come from him working with my daughter. We’ll miss Jim!

Thousands and Counting!

I wish I lived closer so I could take guitar and piano lessons. The instructor is incredible and anyone’s child will improve dramatically just by putting in some hard work. Mr. Duncan has taught thousands of students over the years and has done an amazing job.

What A Neat Place!

We’ve seen the plans for The Music Studio and are impressed with what we’ve seen and heard about Jim Duncan’s business plan, philosophy, and goals. This is going to be a GREAT place for kids to come and make a joyful noise! As a musician, he’s top notch.  I know the kind of standards he’s sets for himself as a musician and I can only assume that the standards he sets for his teachers, the studio, and the students will be equally high. Kids who take advantage of the opportunities that they’re going to be offering will have a lot of fun and be taught by people that are simply the best teachers around.
