Services

The Scottsdale Studio of Music has brought music to hundreds of families since opening in 2009. Our teachers are highly skilled, personable and friendly, and are dedicated to enriching our students and families through music. When you become a student with us, you can be sure that you’re learning from the best. Our teachers personalize their lessons to you, so that you can acquire an excellent musical foundation, while learning the style of music that you choose.

While you are here researching the best school for you, please consider the benefits of becoming a student with us and find out why our school is offering the highest quality of music lessons in the Valley. 

Families can take piano, voice, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, violin, cello, clarinet, and/or ukulele in one location. Taking lessons at a school like ours allows students to be part of a musical community which brings camaraderie between music students. Our music students are inspired and motivated by interacting and collaborating with other students at their own level or with more advanced students. These opportunities are unavailable when music lessons are taken at a music store, in-home or from a private teacher.

We offer both in person as well as online lessons to students of all ages. We also work with students who have special needs.

Why I started the Business

I started the music academy with the goal of providing a nurturing and inspiring environment for students age 3+ to develop their skills and pursue their passion for music. My vision is to create a community where individuals of all ages and backgrounds can come together to learn, grow, and express themselves through music. By sharing our teachers' knowledge, experience, and love for music, we aim to empower others to discover their unique talents in music and ultimately, to help them achieve their musical dreams. Through scottsdale studio of music, our hope is to make a positive impact on the lives of our students and contribute to the enrichment of the local arts and cultural scene.

About Me

A native of Harbin, China, pianist Tong Liu is on the rise to become a multifaceted musician. She is passionate about performing, teaching and being an owner of Scottsdale Studio of Music. She was determined to pursue a career in music when she was commuting twelve hours on the train from Harbin to Beijing to take piano lessons. Since her education in America, she has appeared as both soloist and accompanist world-wide.

Ms. Liu has performed well in piano competitions including Musicians West Piano Competition and Idaho Federation of Music Competition. Tong was also the winner of the concerto competition at BYU-Idaho, where she performed Schumann A minor piano concerto with the BYUI Orchestra. As a scholarship receiver of Brevard Music Center Festival, Edward Auer summer workshop, and Vianden Music Festival; she had a chance to study with Craig Nies, Edward Auer, Junghwa Moon Auer, Nicolas Roth, Yoshi Akimoto, and Anthony Padilla.
