The Cary Christmas Parade is Saturday, December 11, and may impact parking

We can teach anyone from age 5 to 99! We guide each and every student through the basics of reading and playing music.

We believe that music instruction should be enjoyable, built on a solid technical foundation, inspire creativity, and match each individual's goals. We are currently serving Cary, Apex, Morrisville, Holly Springs, and Raleigh.


Learning an instrument — like the piano, for instance — has many proven benefits. Playing music both assists in children's development and enriches the lives of adults.

​Our goal is to create a warm, open environment where students feel safe enough to ask questions, explore and seek answers. We challenge every student to surpass his or her own personal best and help them over the hills and through the valleys of these growing years. Carolina Music School is particularly proud of its diversity and takes every opportunity to celebrate those characteristics that make us different. We welcome all who come through our door.

The actual Cary Arts Center is right next to Cary elementary school. You will be allowed to park in the school parking lot which is accessible coming down Kildaire Farm Rd. The Cary Regional Library also has a large parking deck, which should be accessible via Kildaire Rd and/or Walnut St. The side street right by both the elementary school and the Cary Arts Center is Faculty Ave, which is off of S Harrison Ave. You can park on that side street as well (for free). 
I would perhaps give yourself an extra 30 min buffer to find parking/walk, *just in case,* and if your schedule allows. You will be allowed to enter the Cary Arts Center before your designated recital time, and they have exhibits on photography, art, and gingerbread houses to look at. Or you can watch the parade out front!
