Moscow Music Academy (formerly GTR Music Studio) provides Moscow, Pullman, and the surrounding areas with friendly and highly qualified teachers for the young and young-at-heart alike. Our professional studio environment aids in development of musical abilities using a structured and comprehensive approach so that students learn faster. If you are looking for music teachers with training, experience, and patience, our music school is the place.
For over 13 years GTR Music Studio has specialized in private music instruction with lessons tailored to meet each student's needs, interests and level of experience, beginner to advanced. Aided by knowledgeable, enthusiastic teachers, our students have fun as they learn the technical skills necessary for playing an instrument and the concepts (theory) behind musical patterns and structure. 
From starting your own band, playing in school or church music groups, open mic nights, or community events, mentoring senior high projects and prepping students for college and local competitions, to simply playing for your own enjoyment, GTR Music Studio has helped hundreds of students develop the skills and confidence to play out. 
GTR Music Studio provides instruction in guitar, bass, piano, voice, ukulele, flute, and drums, as well as music fundamentals and theory. Ensemble and Rock Band groups are expected to be available soon.
Is it time to start or continue YOUR musical journey? Call us today or visit us online to learn more or request information. We look forward to "Helping YOU Make Music!"
