Welcome to The New Mexico School of Music

The New Mexico School of Music has been in existence since 2005. We give instruction on virtually
all instruments, including voice, for people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds, from beginners to
advanced musicians. Our goal is to continue to develop unique and comprehensive curriculum for
students of all musical interests, including classical, popular, jazz, and rock & roll.


Our School’s Mission is:

  • Discovering and developing music talent in each student through the finest and most innovative
    teaching methods.
  • Helping people of all ages, backgrounds, cultures, and capabilities to realize their highest musical
  • Offering a solid academic curriculum for a well rounded pre-college music education.
  • Motivating people to enjoy a life-long music experience.
  • Serving the needs of our community as a valuable cultural resource.

We offer private instruction in the following areas: 


  • Classical
  • Jazz


  • Acoustic
  • Electric
  • Bass



  • Classical
  • Contemporary


  • Violin
  • Cello
  • Harp




  • Flute
  • Recorder
  • Oboe
  • Clarinet
  • Saxophone
  • French Horn
  • Trumpet
  • Trombone

The school’s philosophy is to make the study of music engaging, fulfilling, and fun. We want all of our
students to come away from lessons or classes with a positive experience and love of music. Teaching
music is not only about giving instruction on how to read notes or learn a few pieces. It is an opportunity
to expand students’ life skills: communication, patience, discipline, self-confidence, and joy. We realize
that most students will not be professional musicians and we want to provide students of all levels with
a program that adds value and joy to their lives. Each year we expand our curriculum and continually
improve our facilities.

New Mexico School of Music has been such an amazing experience for our family! The school teachers are very talented and creative. My daughters loved learning the musical instruments at the school and could not wait till the next lesson. They also participated in the recital, which was carefully planned with attention to content and made everyone happy and excited. I also have a lot of appreciation to the school’s director, Tatiana  Vetrinskaya, who works restlessly to build an extraordinary school and attract the best teachers and students. Tatiana and all the teachers in the school not only teach music, but also organize and participate in unique series of theory classes and faculty performances. We truly believe that this school provides an incredible opportunity to any young or experienced musicians.”

I feel almost overwhelmed when it comes to expressing my enthusiasm for the NM School of Music. Director, Tatiana Vetrinskaya, has created a truly unique and state of the art music school where levels of excellence are accessible to music students from beginner to expert. Play, compose, sing or do all three; the wonderful office staff and highly educated team of music teachers are committed to nurturing and expanding each student’s talent, offering performance opportunities for all with frequent recitals, competitions and festivals. I have two daughters who study piano and guitar there and within a few short months our house was filled with beautiful music on a daily basis. If you have a child who wants to learn the true universal language then I highly recommend you visit the NM School of Music.
