Philosophy

KBA is proud to offer one of the finest after school music programs in the area.  Our children are given the opportunity to achieve excellence in music through their natural love of learning in a caring, nurturing environment.  Playing music develops children’s mathematical skills and self-discipline.  Our music program encourages exploration, creativity, and self-expression.  This helps us fulfill our mission of enabling our children to grow into independent, creative thinkers!
