Join our Studio

We have been private music teachers for nine years. Our studio is called Bender Conservatory. The word "studio" refers collectively to us, our instruction, all our students, and the place where students learn, which is equipped with the necessary instruments, equipment, and learning materials of the highest quality for the educational process.

We established Bender Conservatory in 2014, teaching private music lessons. Our studio quickly grew, and we expanded by adding a children's chorus and symphony orchestra, before we settled in Williamsburg in 2019.

Registering your child for music lessons is one of the best ways to augment your child's education. Call us today, and register your child for private music instruction. We welcome you to our studio. Ages five and up.

Music is an integral part of your child's total education. Many professionals actively play a musical instrument. Universities and places of employment prefer to see applicants who play music, because playing music indicates a well-rounded, educated individual with a creative mind. Mastering an instrument is one of the greatest demonstrations of focus and commitment.


Each semester, we prepare each student for a formal recital, held with all our students. Your child will prepare a performance piece appropriate for your child's capability level, and perform that piece for all the students and their parents.

The recital is a necessary part of not only instrument learning, but general education. The experience your child will acquire by participating in the recital is priceless. Your child will learn the social skills necessary to conduct him/herself in front of a group, and will learn to work through the jitters of nervousness and present with confidence and poise, which is one of the core skills of leadership in general.

The skills your child learns in our studio apply to all areas of life, and will serve your child well.
