We specialize in piano lessons, voice lessons, guitar lessons and most other band and orchestra instruments. We offer private and group lessons for all ages and ability levels.Our faculty is second to none. We offer performance opportunities that you simply will not find anywhere else. We work with young, first-time beginners all the way through advanced students looking to make a career as a performer or musician. Our students perform regularly at nursing homes, malls and traditional recitals...
One of the highlights of the year is the annual Studio Showcase at a major venue: Ikeda Theater at Mesa Arts Center, Scottsdale Center for the Arts and The Orpheum, to name a few. We have also performed at Cooperstown and US Airways Center.One unique feature of our studio is our system for "leveling up." Always wanted to know if your student was actually making progress? Now you will. If you're looking for music instruction that is a cut above, you've come to the right place.
My three kids all take lessons at KSPA. The teachers are all fantastic and Kirk is obviously very passionate about teaching kids to learn about music and enjoy playing their instruments.

We love Kirk's Studio for the Performing Arts. After recently moving to Scottsdale from California we were looking for a music studio so our son could continue his piano lessons but Kirk's offers so much more. In addition to piano we've added bass guitar and he is in a rock band and has had many public performances. Our son is having a great time, loves practicing and performing and is making great friends. The teachers and staff are friendly and professional and the students are so very talented. We feel very fortunate that we found Kirk's.

Excellent Studio! Caring staff and owner. We've been with the studio for 2 years and wouldn't go any place else. Great teachers! Great performing opportunities for the students. We lucked out when we found this place.

My children have been taking piano lessons at Kirk's Studio before it even became a studio. Kirk has grown this studio to be a very exciting place to take lessons of all sorts. Since he moved into the studio, he added to his piano lessons many more opportunities. He has started show choirs, guitar, violin, cello, voice lessons and more. He has helped create awesome Rock Bands who have competed in Rock Band competitions and played at the Rock n' Roll Marathon. The studio has expanded from the Scottsdale location to Mesa and Desert Ridge. The Showcase performances are amazing every year and something that even those who don't participate would enjoy attending. All in all even though the lessons are more costly than others, the opportunities and the quality of lessons are worth the price. It is a one stop shopping kind of place. AND the owners are AMAZING people to boot! LHolgate

My two children just started going to Kirk's Studio a couple weeks ago for piano and voice lessons. In the short time that they have had with their teachers, they have learned so much. They have a great time everytime and always leave with a smile. We really appreciate all that Kirk's has done for us already and look forward to a long, happy relationship with the studio. Thanks so much Kirk and Celena. :)!!!!!!!!!!!

We rented a band instrument from Kirk's and have been REPEATEDLY plagued with mis-communication, no communication and dis-respect from Kirk's. They took our instrument to be repaired, gave us a lower value replacement with the promise to give us back the original when it was repaired and never did. Every time we called, they couldn't answer our questions. Promised they'd call back and didn't. Tossed money at my child when he paid for reeds rather than handing the money back respectfully. Their name is mud around our house!

We are very sorry that this customer had such a horrible experience. I can't help but think that the customer is exaggerating a little. : ) I can't imagine any of our assistants "tossing money" at anybody, unless of course they ask us to. As hard as we try to ensure that every single customer that walks through our door is well-served, it is possible that one customer had a bad experience. It's just our luck that the one customer decided to broadcast it on the world wide web. We have an excellent reputation and do our best to take care of every customer. If you'd like to see our talented assistants toss money - come on in - their skills will amaze you!
I have been going to kirks for many years and it couldnt be better! I have learnd so much! The teachers are amazingly talented and the price is not bad! You can take lessons in so many different instuments including guitar, piano, voice, drums, and violin. Another thing that makes kirks studio even better are the performances. Their anual studio showcase is held at scottsdale center for the arts and is fantastic. Many students also play at the recitals, pf changs race for the cure, and coopers town. You will love it here!
