2017 National Music School of the Year!

Thank you, central Arkansas, for voting us one of the 

Best for Music Lessons in 2015, 2016, & 2017 in the Log Cabin Democrat!


Our students and their parents are what makes us great!

 Student Performances!

We are excited to announce that Conway Institute of Music Student's will be performing at Toad Suck Daze in May as well as the Spring Recital in June!


 Referral Contest!

It’s been our biggest year to date, and we’ve got promotion to reward you for referrals.

Effective immediately, for any student that you refer to us, we will refund your account a FULL month of tuition, $110.00 back into your account!

This extra special promotion expires 4/28/18 and that deadline is firm. All you need to do is spread the word and tell your friends to sign up for lesson at Conway Institute of Music and to list YOU as the referrer!

There’s no maximum for the promotion, so if you refer 5 people and they all sign up, we’ll give you $550 back.

Yes, we’re serious :)

Please note the referral must actually register for lessons and this is only for referrals that sign up (register) for lessons with us before the 4/28/18 deadline.

So please send us your referrals!

Every time you refer a new student to CIM, we will gift you a FREE month of lessons AND your friend with their choice of a Target Gift Card, Amazon Gift Card, or Movie Passes.


You will both be entered into a raffle to WIN an iPad Air 2!

More referrals mean more chances to win!

Celebrating Student Achievement 

The Musical Ladder System®

The Conway Institute of Music is the only music school in the Arkansas that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests with the Musical Ladder System®. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder System®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends.

More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they
practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins!

Pictured: Vocal student Meleah earned her Champion trophy award! 

Pictured: Guitar student Kaeleb earned his Apprentice wristband award! 

Pictured: Piano student Alley earned her Songbird trophy award!

Congratulations, everyone!!
