About Us

Fox Valley's Community Music School


Mission Statement
Music Matters mission is to provide people of all ages and abilities the tools to have a life long love of music.

Why Music Matters
Music is an art form that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. Either by a professional performer or the casual music enthusiast, music brings people together. When a person learns to communicate through music, they participate in a shared experience that can foster friendships, build community, and inspire.

Music Matters School of Music embolden our students to explore all areas of music by teaching them music they like to play. By providing a safe and clean environment, the school offers several opportunities to perform either as a soloist or in one of our many ensembles.

As a parent we realize you have a choice between several different music schools, however not all schools are the same. We constantly renovate and improve our facilities and provide ongoing training to our staff to ensure we are always providing our students and parents with the best experience possible.

In the Community
Music Matters strongly believes in being a part of the local and global community. The school hosts several fundraisers for local and international charities through out the school year to provide aid to those in need. Some of the organizations we support are: Mooseheart, Batavia Mothers Club, Save Darfur Coalition, Access to Music, and many others. If you would like to know how you can help, please contact us.

Benefits of studying at Music Matters?

Regular Recitals
We host three recitals a year as well as having several Open Mic’s and other public performance opportunities. This gives our students goals and helps in building confidence.
