Welcome to the Centre for Musical Minds!

We are thrilled that you are taking the time to read about who is educating your children, or maybe even you.

The Centre for Musical Minds was founded in 2008 by Kristin Yost, M.M. Piano Performance and Pedagogy, along with Dr. Sam Holland, composer, author and professor at Southern Methodist University. Both are classically trained pianists that love the traditional repertoire, and also have a penchant for music that reaches beyond the Western classical tradition.

Yost and Holland wanted to create a space to educate and excite the inner musician of students young and old. Most importantly, they wanted to make music relevant to the community. The belief that there is music in every person, and through music we can all lead happier more confident and creative lives, is the driving force behind CMM.

The word is out about how rewarding music study can be at the Centre for Musical Minds! CMM is a positive, enriching music lesson environment where piano and voice instruction are tailored to each individual. We have an uncompromising commitment to excellence in all ages and stages. Our student-focused approach moves beyond just turning to the next page in a lesson book every week. We encourage students to develop their inner musical voice through solid foundational skills combined with exciting music ranging from Bach to the Beatles and beyond.

With traditional recitals, pop recitals, composition and song-writing available to everyone, we also bring in African Drumming, master classes and much more, making your journey with us an exciting one that will last a lifetime. So, come join us and let us help you find your inner musician!

What They Say

Read testimonials from our satisfied students and parents

"We came to CMM from a different school and wanted private lessons that would help my child read the notes. 5 years down the lane, we love this place enough to have our second child also go here and to recommend them to anyone who's looking for piano classes."



"You will never regret partnering with CMM for yourself or your child. They will instill a lifelong love of music and that is the greatest gift of all!"
