With its more than 80 international branches, Modern Music School is one of the largest music schools in the world. It was founded in Germany in 1987 by Hans-Peter Becker, professional drummer and business economist. Ever since, our school has grown further and further, mainly thanks to its successful teaching and learning concept for rock and pop music. In 2011, Modern Music School arrived in the United States of America. Our first school on American soil can be found in Pasadena, California.

Modern Music School is the perfect choice for beginners, intermediates and professionals of all ages. After all, we offer a suitable program for each and every student – starting at the Personal Program for individual and particular interests, and reaching all the way to the Band Program, which is aimed at making progress by having fun as a group.

At Modern Music School, all teachers are professional musicians with special training from MMS central. The entire concept is based on motivation, practical relevance and brain-friendly teaching – a fact reflected by the golden thread found at the core of our own set of text books. We help our students become people of confidence who express themselves through music and use it to realize their own potential.

But Modern Music School is so much more than just classes. We get our students to perform live and on stage, we present their bands on our website, and we present awards for success. Ultimately, we open up the door to the MMS Community – a network of music fans where everyone is welcome. From the occasional guitar player to the professional vocalist.

We have been putting the insights from research on how people learn to practical use for 25 years in order to accomplish this. The research tells us how the brain processes music and how people might be most successful at learning how to play an instrument. This is the foundation of Modern Music Education. Thanks to our teachers’ experience with thousands and thousands of students, we know that our method works!

Modern Music School has a clear goal in mind: We want to lead our students towards their goals by taking the shortest route, all the while having as much fun as possible. As a result, they will enjoy making music with others for the rest of their lives.
