About Mindful Music Center:

My name is Desirae Salas, and I started Mindful Music Center in 2015, and have taught piano lessons and voice lessons to students of all ages and abilities, including preschool students, children, teens, adults, and students with disabilities. Since then, Mindful Music Center has continued to grow and I have added four more teachers, who teach piano lessons, guitar lessons, ukulele lessons, flute lessons, and cello lessons. We also offer baby music classes, and music classes for students with Down Syndrome and Autism, and accept the Gardiner Scholarship. Students at MMC are able to participate in the Piano Guild Auditions as well as other competitions, and perform in two recitals per year. We are continuing to grow and are currently excited to accept new students!

Recent research shows more and more benefits to learning a musical instrument, including:
