About Us

1 Peter 4:10 tells us God has given each of us a gift. We must use them well to serve one another.

And it was through prayer that God spoke to us at Grow Your Gift Conservatory Music School 25 years ago, orchestrating the opportunity for us to share our gifts as musicians.

As musicians, we believe our efforts should be for everyone’s blessing, and that is our desire every time we come together to play.

Our Story

Initially, our home studio was our unique space that served music students for six years. We had 23 students, ranging from ages 2 to 69, and they all came to learn how to develop their musical talents. When we reached a waiting list of 11, plans were put into motion to expand the vision.

The piano, our main instrument, has been taught to students as young as two years old. Clarinet lessons have also been taken by many adults and children alike. In addition, the saxophone has enticed a few learners.

The Grow Your Gift Conservatory Music School offers accomplished music instructors for wind and string instruments as well as voice instruction. We target middle school to high school students with programs designed to support band and choral directors to encourage students to continue in music education.

For years, we have been serving the Fort Walton Beach area and surrounding cities, ensuring quality music education is provided for decades to come.

Our Mission

We are committed to providing people in our community with opportunities for musical growth and development. Our music education programs will foster a lifelong love of learning through exploration, touching on all genres from around the world!

Our vision is to offer premium, affordable music lessons to students of all ages.

We all know the struggle of affordability. If more people were able to afford lessons, then their playing ability would increase, and they could enjoy music more!

That’s why we are committed to providing the best music performance education possible. With a curriculum that consists of only top-quality, renowned instructors and comprehensive programs in every discipline from wind instruments to vocal technique for singers who want an edge on their competition – we are excited to market our dedication to music performance education.

In addition to the traditional teaching methods, we want our instructors to engage in continuing education opportunities that provide them with innovative and engaging information. They can then bring this knowledge back to the Conservatory for a more personalized approach when teaching.

To support our marketing efforts, we offer sectional rehearsals in middle and high schools for an opportunity to sit down with the band and choral directors and share the vision, build the buy-in, and allow these music instructors to see we have their backs in terms of producing high-quality musicians.

If their young musicians have the opportunity to receive affordable and enriched music education outside of school, their jobs will become so much easier.
