Welcome to Walton Music Institute (WMI)!

Private study develops a lifelong love of music, places demand on individual discipline, and enhances self-esteem. WMI offers private instruction for band students at Walton High School, Dickerson Middle School, and Dodgen Middle School. WMI is designed to provide quality private instruction that is convenient and comfortable for our students and families. Lessons will be held at Walton High School with highly qualified musicians who specialize on their instruments. Learn more about our instructors here.

 

DISCLAIMER

The Walton Music Institute is designed to serve those students not currently studying privately. It is not designed to take students away from teachers not in WMI and should not be interpreted as a signal to change teachers. There are many fine teachers in the immediate area who offer comparable quality instruction.
