Music brings joy to life! Give youth a chance to a good hobby which will still bring joy in adulthood!

The Sound of Music Center – since 1994 at the Munkkivuori Shopping center.

It has been stated that music, as a hobby for children, has a positive impact on both the development of the hearing and motoristic skills emphasises the founder and executive manager Risto Kultala. Playing an instrument exercises our brains and also improves our ability to focus. Everyone knows that music also has to be pleasant, and mastering different instruments can prove to be an endless adventure for both the young and the old.

The Musiikkikoulu Music Center was founded November 1994. Since 2003 Musiikkikoulu Music Center’s kannatusyhdistys ry has been in charge of the activities of Music Center.

The Music Center is located in Munkkivuori Shopping center’s 0-floor. The following buses stop outside the shopping center; 14, 18, 39, 52, 57, 58 and 552.

The lessons are taught with a par or alone. The student progresses based on their skills and abilities. After the student has learned the basics of the instrument, the student can direct their learning to either classical or pop/rock music.

To progress in your studies requires diligent home practise. Regular attendance to the lessons is important for improvement. Owning an instrument is necessary.
