Technology is also a big part of lessons at the Conway Institute of Music and we have installed LED monitors in every classroom at our school.

Feel free to "Bring Your Own Device" to your lesson in addition to your instrument! No other school in Conway offers this technology.
One of the things that has really set up apart is our focus on providing lessons that are fresh, new, and engaging. There are so many great teaching apps out there now that we felt we had to update our teaching rooms with LED monitors. By doing so, our students have never run the risk of being bored by their lessons. It's a challenge to engage children or adults, but by integrating technology such as teaching apps from the iTunes store, GarageBand, ProTools, you name it, we're providing a cutting edge lesson experience in the Conway area.
