Our Faculty

At SoBe Institute of the Arts our roster of professional instructors are selected based on several key factors:

  • Our Instructors have the necessary skills to clearly communicate their working knowledge of music to our students - no matter at what age or level the student. 

  • Our Instructors are experienced professional musicians, actors, composers and teachers. 

  • Our Instructors recognize that teaching is essential for a professional musician to continue to extend their own knowledge and they have a genuine personal interest in the advancement of their students.

*It is well-documented that music education programs can successfully address diverse academic and social needs, such as: advancing  academic achievement due to transferable study skills and enhanced self-esteem; developing attention skills, self-expression and physical dexterity; broadening one’s understanding and appreciation of the world; and improving abilities such as self-discipline, collaboration, communication with others, and creativity. 1

Music education opportunities are increasingly limited within the schools – especially for youth whose test scores are low – as arts electives are reduced. Quality arts education outside of school is even more difficult to find, and still more difficult to afford, despite a variety of city and private programs. Our mission is to make music and arts education available to all.
