A Chat with Murco Music Academy
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We have a brand new 3000 square foot facility in Hopkins and our teachers are world class. They tour the world and come back home to pass on knowledge to you! We also have a program called, "Band Together" where students rehearse with their own band and have live performances at real venues.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
You can bring your guitar, bass, or drum sticks if you want. We can provide everything else you may need.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I wanted to find a way to be able to spend as much time as I could with my family. As a touring sound engineer, I could end up on the road 9 months of the year. When my first son was born, I knew that all I wanted in life was to be around him all the time. This job made local employment a reality.
What do you love most about your job?
Collaborating with other like minded individuals through music. This place allows me to show my hometown what I've learned out there, whether its mapping out what it takes to make a living in the music industry or just having a good time playing music. I love watching my students progress!
