welcome!

Families today are busier than ever, but kids are only kids once! We help on-the-go parents find time for their children to be curious and creative by providing convenient after-school group music lessons, dance classes, and private music lessons.

The FineArtsMatter Story

FineArtsMatter was founded in 2010 by elementary school music teacher, guitar player, and graduate of the Peabody Conservatory of Music, Jonathan Eftychiou. Guitar Club was our first program offered at five schools with over 90 students enrolled!

Kids loved the fun and relevant songs they learned and parents were thrilled when they saw their child perform live in concert at the end of the semester!

Over a decade later, we now offer four unique, engaging, and educational enrichment classes to 1000’s of students every year at schools and community centers, in addition to private in-home instruction, homeschooling and online lessons.

Frequently Asked Questions

ARE INSTRUMENTS PROVIDED FOR KIDZKEYS & GUITAR CLUB?

YES! We bring guitars and keyboards to every class, for every student, every week. We want our classes to be accessible for every child, even if they don’t have an instrument at home! Music and take-home lesson sheets are also provided each week for every child. During registration, you can purchase the same instruments your child will be using in class if you want to help them practice at home.

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS OR DISCOUNTS?

YES! When you enroll your child you will have the option of paying in full or choosing our convenient 4-Month Payment Plan (available for most programs). We also offer multiple discounts, including Early-Bird, Sibling, Multi-Season, and Referral Rewards. Join our mailing list below to receive current offers. Start Saving and Sign Up Now!

CAN MY CHILD JOIN CLASS IN THE 2ND SEMESTER?

YES! Every semester starts fresh with an introduction to the basic elements of the guitar, keyboard, beat making, or dance before we start learning new songs or choreography. We believe in making our classes accessible to all levels of experience and our teachers are trained to help your child learn at their own pace by regularly setting aside moments during class for one-on-one instruction.

HOW MUCH DO GROUP CLASSES COST?

Our classes are roughly 2/3 the cost of private studio instruction, and we offer the added convenience of teaching your child right at your school or through online lessons! Please check our Sign Up Page, choose your region and scroll down to find your school to see specific pricing. Tuition varies upon the length of program.

CAN MY 3RD GRADER JOIN KIDZKEYS?

Our curriculum has been designed for students in K through 2nd grade, but if your 3rd grader is a beginner or has a younger sibling in the class, it will still be a great experience for them! Sign Up Now.

MY CHILD HAS TAKEN PRIVATE LESSONS, WILL THEY BENEFIT FROM CLASS?

YES, absolutely! Our curriculum and teaching methods are designed to benefit both beginners and students who have previous lessons. Our classroom experience is unique and gives kids an opportunity to learn with other students, like they’re in a band! We've discovered that this environment is both encouraging and challenging at the same time, and gives kids a chance to learn from and be inspired by the hard work and progress of their peers. Your child will also have tons of fun performing with their friends in our Final Performance at the end of the semester!

DO YOU OFFER PRIVATE LESSONS?

YES! Many of our excellent classroom teachers also teach in-home and online private lessons. Private lessons are a great compliment to the group experience offered in Guitar Club and KidzKeys. You can even schedule your first lesson FREE!

HOW IS FINEARTSMATTER RESPONDING TO COVID-19?

FineArtsMatter is continuously monitoring information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and staying in close communication with your child’s school district to align our actions and safety procedures with the latest recommendations and guidance.
