Many schools have an intimidating university style curriculum taught by instructors who would rather be performing than teaching.  Our number one priority is helping Canton area music students achieve their musical goals.  If you’re a beginner or are looking for music lessons for your kids, or even an adult who wants to get back into lessons, we are happy to teach you!

12:  Trophies, Certificates, and Award Wristbands to Celebrate Achievement
We are the only music school in Canton & Woodstock that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies, AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder System®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder 
is our unique method of music education that is not available anywhere else in
Canton, GA. More importantly, when our students have a test coming up, they
practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody

wins. You can only get the Musical Ladder here. 


13. We are the only music school in Canton that offers a picture day for their students.

Every May and December we host a free picture day with professional photographer Rob & Jon studio. This is a service that our student’s parents love as they all want quality photos of their children (example pictured right). Adults are welcome too! Students can bring their instruments to the photo shoot and wear whatever they like.


If you are ready to start, you have nothing to lose as we only want students who truly want to be here and we will not commit you to a long term contract.

“My son takes drum lessons with Jonathan at Play Music and Art. From the friendly face at the front desk each week to the kindness and encouragement I’ve witnessed of all the instructors here, can’t imagine taking my child anywhere else for music lesson.” -Amanda D.

This place rocks! Best birthday party yet. My 7 yr old and her friends had the best time painting. Booking the party was a breeze, and it was no-stress planning. Lara and her staff are fabulous! We’ll definitely be back for more events.” -Vickie H.

I come from a family of professional musicians and I am very impressed with Jonathan. After at least a decade behind the drums he picked up exactly where I needed and helped me on my way to serious growth. I plan on being a student as long as he is around. The faculty is very personable and helpful. I feel right at home with everyone. I highly recommend Play!” – Billy M.

“My daughter is loving her art class. I didn’t know how she would handle this being her first class like this but Shaun is great and she looks forward to it every week!” -Google User
