Kirk’s Studio for the Performing Arts was founded by Kirk Taylor, a professional musician and teacher since 1986, in 2002 and started in the living room of Kirk and Pam’s small home. A year later, the studio found a new home at Frank Lloyd Wright and Via Linda in Scottsdale and continued to grow rapidly.In 2008, a second location was opened at Cave Creek and the 101.We now have nearly 40 instructors who offer private and group lessons in piano, voice, guitar and drums. In addition, we teach most band and orchestra instruments such as violin, viola, cello, brass (trumpet, trombone, french horn, baritone, tuba) and winds (flute, clarinet, saxophone).Our instructors have many years of experience and most have advanced degrees. For a complete lineup of instructors and instruments offered, click here. Many of our students have gone on to scholarships at prestigious universities and careers as musicians. We’re thrilled to work with the very young beginners up to the aspiring professionals. We offer performances annually at nursing homes and at the mall. We also have recitals, open-mic nights and spotlight concerts. We do a huge Showcase every year at a major venue and all students are invited to perform.
