 “We absolutely LOVE Perkins and wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Our instructors are knowledgeable, enthusiastic and patient. The environment fosters my child’s interest and talent in the arts and music”.

“What I like most is the fact that all the lessons/commitments are quarterly. This is especially important with a daughter as young as mine who may change her mind at any moment. Everyone is nice and friendly, always has a smile and looks genuinely happy to be there. The facilities are always clean, orderly, well plowed, etc. They still have character though, and don’t feel cold or sterile, simply professional and well kept”. –Evaluation Response
