A music instructor can play a very unique and special role in both you and your child’s lives. That’s why Certain Sparks Music strives to find instructors who not only can teach music, but can serve as mentors to you and your child. We think it’s so important that there is a strong connection between student and teacher, because it allows for students to express themselves creatively in a safe environment. The school’s music directors are required to have competency on guitar, bass, drums, vocals, ukulele, keyboards, and group ensemble. The teaching staff participates in ongoing training and mentoring under the guidance of our owner Randall Sena. All of our staff have received and passed background checks.
