Keyboard Art is the largest private school of music, visual art, and movement arts in the Tri-Community.   The teachers at our school are accomplished musicians, artists, yoga, martial arts, culinary, and dance instructors with academic degrees, and decades of experience practicing, performing and teaching their art.  We specialize in performance, composition, music theory, music literacy, artistic and musical expression and movement arts.  We believe that learning how to understand, experience, and create, both emotionally and physically, is the key to artistic success. 

All of our Master Teachers have more than 35 years of teaching in their field of expertise.  Most have either a Masters or Doctorate Degree in Music and/or Music Education and are qualified to provide the training necessary to prepare students for college admittance if they choose music as their major.  We are proud of the fact that we have successfully launched several students into their music careers.  

Our school is located in beautiful Wrightwood, CA, and we have a satellite locations in Phelan and Apple Valley, CA.  In Wrightwood we offer instruction for piano, voice and choir, violin and cello, harp, accordiondrums, brass, winds and band, guitar, ukulele, songwriting, art, yoga and martial arts, cooking, and science. In Apple Valley and Phelan we offer instruction in voice and piano. Instruction is available from Rhonda Grundy (Phelan and Apple Valley),  Chet Noll,  Gayle Dowling, Dylann Stubbelfield, Tim Benge, Rodger Whitten, Jerry Ripley, Stephanie Santos-Owens, Chloe Copeland and Chad Keel.  All of our teachers are Live Scan finger printed with the Department of Justice and FBI and we are a vendor for Sage Oak, Sky Mountain, Excel Academy, iLEAD, Valiant and Inspire charter schools.

Our Story

Chet moved to Wrightwood in 1993 and established the Keyboard Art studio.  In 2002 Chet met Joyce and soon thereafter Joyce became Chet's wife and the administrator of the studio. Keyboard Art has grown steadily over the years.  Eventually, success created long waiting lists for potential students, so in 2014 we brought in more teachers. With the addition of teachers, we renamed the studio Keyboard Art School of Music and now offer a wide range of musical, art, yoga and martial arts instruction.
