Musicians Movement Blue Springs
Career Music Educators Serving School Musicians, Music Directors and Driven Performers
Specializing in Performance Driven, Technology Based Music Instruction
Musicians Movement Kansas City, MO., founded in 2009, is a collection of state and national certified educators dedicated to the needs and advancement of modern music students, music technology, and performance. We are determined to raise the bar and re-define music education in order to better serve local students, public school music directors, and the community in general. There is strong evidence indicating that music retailers are inhibited by retail driven structures that limit their abilities to serve music education because they do not address the needs of music students and public educators as their primary agenda, nor do they keep up with current trends, technology, or the working conditions of “today’s” music educators. While we still practice valued traditional methods, we specialize in the use of current “hands-on real life” music technology and contemporary approaches that make learning more fun without compromising customary standards established by state and national organizations such as Missouri Music Educators Association and Music Educators National Convention. Additionally, we are proud of our relationships with local music educators and understand the nature of public school music programs. We recognize our obligations to them, and are committed to preparing students with the required skills necessary to support their programs and the particular requirements of various directors. Although “ the Movement” is recognized as the cutting edge facility of music instruction and caters to the more serious student and performance inclined, we understand the desires of hobbyists and offer elective courses for these learners as well.
The language of music is best spoken and understood with others, rather than an isolated approach. Private lessons and practice are simply the seeds to the music garden. Without a harvest, there is no reward or motivation for continuing to plant seeds. Performance is the fruit of labor for a musician, as the harvest is to a farmer. This experience is what retains student interest and keeps learners motivated to excel to greater standards of achievement.
