Mr. Rustandi has been teaching violin and viola at the Merit School of Music for over 15 years, both privately and in group classes.
My favorite pop band is Maroon 5 and my favorite classical composer is Beethoven. They are quintessential composers or artists, representing the best of their time period.
Music education helps develop great discipline, increases academic performance, builds great communication skills, and helps keep students engaged in school. The Merit School of Music provides this great opportunity.
