​Kathy is very patient and kind. She relates to the student's difficulties learning a new instrument and is consistently supportive and encouraging. As an older adult learner, it was important to me to have an environment that was nonjudgemental yet have the material presented in a professional manner. Lessons with Kathy and Justin were extremely rewarding and I have the confidence to play for my own enjoyment.  Sue A.​


My 11 year old took ukulele lessons from Ms. Kathy and Mr. Justin as a beginner student.  It was a fantastic experience from the very first lesson as Ms. Kathy has a warm, welcoming personality and helped my son’s confidence soar. There was detailed, written instructions, easy communication and fantastic music.  Heather A.


I enrolled in a 10 week class for beginners under the teachings of Kathy Bellavia and thoroughly enjoyed the classes.  Kathy was well prepared for each lesson providing handouts of music that was worked on in class. I had been learning to play the uke prior to the class and finished the course as a more accomplished player, no longer afraid to join seasoned uke players in jam sessions. I highly recommend The Music Makers and would not hesitate to take lessons again in the future.  Leah B.




The Music Makers is an incredible program for all ages! My toddler has been taking music class with Kathy for the last 6 months and it is the highlight of her week! She proudly beams as she shows me her music class stamp, and we practice the songs every night before bedtime. I highly recommend this program- it's never too early to get children interested in the arts, and Ms. Kathy is the best!

We love Mr. Justin’s music class! My daughter has a great time in class singing and dancing and sings the songs at home all week long. Mr. Justin has the kindest heart and his passion for music and teaching children is evident. We’ve grown up with Mr. Justin since my little one was less than 1-year old and now, at 4.5, he’s played a great positive role in her life.

Kathy Bellavia's music program is exceptional! This is my 11th year teaching her child-themed music curriculum in a Matthews church preschool, and I have enjoyed and been blessed by every minute of it. All children, from infants to T-K's, become thoroughly engaged in the songs, instruments, and movement activities as the lesson plans build from week to week. Kathy's vast knowledge, creative genius, and steadfast expertise have combined to provide a musical program that is unmatched. Every parent will want their child to experience and be delighted by Kathy's heart-warming approach to age-appropriate musical education.
