Our recitals are fun, low pressure and can be a great way for students to build confidence and show off their hard work! For our students these recitals are free and unlike many schools we do not charge recital participation, performance costs or admission fees. In addition to our recitals we offer students the opportunity to perform at other local venues through our Student Band Program. Our students have unique performance opportunities such as the famous Bass Hall in December!

"I've got an 8-year old son whose interests tend to change with the weather. When we enrolled him in a band program, we purchased an acoustic guitar and promised an electric if he showed a willingness to practice and commit to learning. I give high marks to Creative Soul for getting him VERY interested in music and getting him to stick with something for as long as he has thus far. He looks forward to practice each week and practices at home without complaint. He loved doing the summer concert. I'll be shopping for an electric guitar this week, and I can't wait to see how he progresses. He's already talking smack, telling me he's better than I am already (not a big stretch, actually!). Thanks, Casey, and the great instructors at Creative Soul, for creating an environment that fosters creativity and nurtures musical talents!"Randy R. (Guitar)
"After trying other music schools and private in home lessons, we finally found this school, wish I had found them first - they are wonderful! My son has been with them for about a year now and not only loves and looks forward to his lessons but his skills and knowledge has improved dramatically. I no longer have to remind him to practice at home; he gets upset if he doesn't have time to practice every day. I also love that the teachers make it all about the kids, no time wasted showing off to the student like A LOT of other places do. We love this school!!"Unknown Review. (Piano)
"We absolutely love Creative Soul! My sons instructor is fantastic with him, and everyone we've dealt with there is so nice. My son has been there for a few months and is already able to keep a beat on the drums through an entire song! He looks forward to going to his lesson every week!"Darla Pyle (Drums)
"My 9yo girl and 7yo boy (and my husband) are typically reluctant about camps, especially anything new. After just the first day, it was clear that this was a GREAT CHOICE! The kids were sooo excited about being in a band, about choosing a popular song to perform, about collaborating to write an original song, and about their roles in the band. After a full day at camp, they came home and practiced what they'd learned. Each day they were excited to share what they'd learned and how the songs and band were progressing. It was fun to see it all evolve over the course of the week. We enjoyed the performance on Friday evening. It was clear that the kids had all worked hard and we were quite impressed with what the instructors and students were able to accomplish so much in such a short amount of time, especially considering that many children had no musical training or background!
As a parent, I was also impressed with the vibe in the FW studio. It was fun, energetic and welcoming. The decor is comfortable and hip and conducive to creativity and fun.
We had a great experience at Creative Soul and look forward to future activities with them!"
"Wonderful costumer service, understanding of a young-creative mind. The staff and coaches understand mentoring and strive to foster an environment rich in creativity and learning. My son is more than the typical rough and energetic young man. I have never once sensed a cross attitude toward his progression. The coaches are all extremely multi-talented and actively display there talents. Allways a wonderful experience, front desk and all included."Scott D. (Piano, Guitar, Band)
