Teora Music School born to meet the demand of music learning centers into the Creekside Park and surrounding neighborhoods. Owners come from European families where music was a constant discipline and passion. Enjoying the pleasure of living in a privileged place such as The Woodlands, it was decided to collaborate with the cultural development of the area, transforming people lives by opening this center of music education and thus give back the gratitude to this Texans community.

Teora Music School offers a variety of courses and services related to Music Education and Music Production in the same place for students of all ages.

There are many things I love about teaching YMES. The fact that the curriculum continues to change and improve keeps me growing and learning musically and as a teacher. After 35 years of being a YMES teacher, I can honestly say that there is never a day that I do not walk in to work happy to be there and looking forward to the day. Most of my friends cannot say that about their respective careers! Gloria, teacher-owner, CA
