They are, admittedly, “band geeks” from their teenage years. Barbara & Kevin Abendroth, owners of Music Matters in Trinity, have always taken great pleasure in music and instruments. In 2000, the couple owned and operated four piano and organ shops throughout Tampa Bay, and they taught lessons to Seniors. After six years, they developed their greatest idea! Barbara & Kevin closed their businesses and moved to the Trinity area, where they embraced their passion for music and teaching families the art.
“We have been in the music business since we were teenagers. We understand the benefits of having music in our lives, and we take great satisfaction getting kids and adults involved in playing music. We hope it will make a difference in their lives, too,” Kevin explains.
To more than 3,000 students from the area over the last six years, and to the 400 currently enrolled, music really does matter! There are 30 instructors who teach students of all ages how to play instruments, read music and grow in their talent! Music Matters has a 15-station computer lab for interactive participation by the students to supplement the teacher’s lessons. They also utilize 17 studios with glass doors where parents can observe their child’s lesson with qualified professional. There is also a comfortable waiting area, complete with a coffee bar, plasma televisions, luxury chairs and WiFi. However, each student is different.
This summer, Music Matters plays host to various fun and educational camps and classes for most every age. “MusiCamp” is an introduction to music and instruments. “Rock Band” is a class in which your child’s rock star dreams come true! “ShowTime” involves a focus on drama, while “PopCamp” emphasizes pop music, singing, and choreography. The teachers and their classes are professional and fun at all times!
Music Matters has a great selection of instruments & supplies at very affordable rates. Instrument rental options are also available.
Music Matters is located in the Grand Trinity Plaza at 4112 Little Rd, Trinity. Now is the time to enroll yourself or your children in one or more of the summer camp classes available, or in private/semiprivate lessons.
