In 2000 award-winning concert pianist and composer Eckart Seeber established Southern California Music School for the purpose of providing high quality music education in Southern California. Seeber sought to strike a balance between the flexibility and unique adaptability of the independent private instructor and the standardized educational framework and support system that a public Music Conservatory can offer. Hence, Seeber’s unique music school model provides free music books to students to ensure all private students learn from standards-align methods and automatically have all the resources they need. Free student recital opportunities, as well as opportunities for additional learning and instruction in music literacy, etc., are also important elements of Seeber’s approach.
Southern California Music School soon outgrew its name. In 2007 the brand name MUSICSTAR® replaced Southern California Music School and continues to grow, bringing quality music education to communities everywhere.
