My daughter loved her classes! She was very motivated by the other students and wanted to go back to institute again.
JSSI really helped her to want to do better!


I run a violin studio in Seattle. A couple of my students attended JSSI, and I also dropped by to observe a few classes and I just wanted to say – THANK YOU! The whole thing was well organized, parents reported great communication from the staff, and every class I visited was led by a top-notch teacher. My students had a wonderful time and I can’t wait to send more students next summer.

Take your child’s playing to new heights!
