New Music Studio Opens in Merrifield

A new education-oriented music studio, called Crescendo Studios, just opened in Merrifield, near the Mosaic District.

Eddie Fuentes, director of the studio, said the goal is to provide individualized music lessons and to teach students to be creative thinkers in a diverse, nurturing environment.

“Our mission is to bring culture, diversity and a wealth of experience to the education of our students,” Fuentes said. “Too many times education of the arts is homogenized and every individual is treated the same. This method of teaching can work for some but there are many students who become unmotivated and underwhelmed because they are not being engaged the right way.”

The studio opened inside the old MHz Studio at 8101 Lee Highway. Fuentes said the facility has seven private lesson rooms, four band rooms, and a recording studio.

Private music lessons at Crescendo Studio are $35 for a 30-minute lesson or $65 for a one-hour lesson. Small group classes for 6-9 year olds are $35 for one-hour lessons and the Prelude Piano Program for 5-7 year olds is $35 for a one-hour lesson.

The studio is planning to host an open house on Saturday, April 27 from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., giving prospective students, parents or instructors a chance to tour the building and meet the studio’s teachers.

“Our initial goal is to establish ourselves as the go-to location for music education,” said Fuentes. “In our second phase, we aim to bring other art forms into our school such as dance, musical theater, canvas art and more.”
