We opened Ballard School of Performing arts because we saw the need for a program for children with an aptitude to learn to play a musical instrument. Our challenge was to find instructors that would groom them to learn to play musical instruments as well as teach them the fundamentals of music notation. Thus Ballard Street Music Company was started! I am proud to say that we started in Wylie 12 years ago and we are still thriving. We have an established track record of turning children into musicians. Come see what Ballard School programs can do for your children

Ballard Street Kids program is developmental curriculum designed as a pre-requisite to playing a musical instrument. Children learn, music notation, study beat, identification of musical pieces and the composer. Children also experience live entertainment by having musicians come in to play for them during classes. Lastly children in the program have the hands on experience of trying out instruments that they make themselves.
