Owner Amir Khan started a small music program in Coppell in 2009 and eventually opened Coppell Music Academy in 2015. In addition to that location and Plano Music House, Khan has two satellite locations of his business in Irving and Farmers Branch.
Khan refers to Plano Music House as a “school of modern music.”
“If somebody is learning the violin, the teachers love to teach them Bach, Beethoven and Mozart,” he said. “But if [students] want to learn contemporary stuff, they frown upon it. There’s no problem with that. I love classical music, [but] when kids come to us with contemporary stuff, and they want to learn pop music, we teach them that as well.”
Plano Music House offers classes in piano, guitar, drums, violin, viola, cello, voice, music composition and music production for students as young as age 5. Khan said when he started teaching different age groups he discovered the different motor skills and abilities children develop as they get older.
“Between [ages] 5-7 we have piano classes,” Khan said. “Then as soon as they’re about [age] 8, they can pretty much do any other instrument.” 469-443-8694. www.planomusichouse.com
