We at Stubbs' Music Center (SMC) are in our 41st year of providing the best music education to the Tallahassee community and surrounding areas. Music is the only universal language that is available to us: therefore when it comes to choosing your students activities it is our hope that music education will be one of the activities that is chosen. Through music classes and private instruction this universal language will be taught by one of twenty professional music educators within the finest facilities available.
Music Education is a vital part of every person's life. We strive to prepare our students to reach his/her greatest potential and to become actively involved in the music that surrounds our lives. More than 2.300 years ago, Plato said:
