Without music, life would be a mistake.

Some History

Laurissa Jane Music Studio was founded by Alice Laurissa Harris, originally from Cambria Heights, New York. Since it’s foundation, LJMS has been offering in-home music lessons for piano, voice, and guitar. The secret to our success is due in part to being able to provide a wide range of methods of coaching fitted to each child and adult from beginners to the most advanced students. Throughout the year several workshops and recitals will expose our students to the best performance and practice techniques. LJMS has served numerous students off-site at neighborhood schools, retirement communities, as well as local churches.

Our Mission

Our goal is to offer a comprehensive program to educate our students so that they can reach a higher and more skillful level of playing, performing and growing our community. We strongly believe that the arts are an important contribution to society. Art, music, drama, and dance have helped influence the great leaders of our century. We strive to make a broad variety of musical styles and traditions available to you and your family.

Our Philosophy

Working with LJMS gives students the opportunity to explore their inner artist. They will strengthen their talents and interests. It is very vital that we match the correct teacher for each student in order for great success. With the lesson being modified to each student, they will be able to cultivate as multitalented performers. Learning music is one of the most rewarding journeys anyone could enjoy. LJMS instructors believe that music produces and strengthens self esteem, self discipline and the ability to create. Our teachers are challenging and encouraging which will help develop each student to their highest potential.
