The Music Box was created out of the LOVE of music and the desire to grow, INSPIRE, encourage and develop aspiring artists and performers in their God-given talents.
Elizabeth Chaves founded The Music Box in 2012 after years of performing, recording, and touring professionally and training students in both voice and piano from her home studio in Winter Springs/Oviedo.
As her small studio began to grow, so did her dream and vision to one day open a music training studio that is community oriented and set apart from the rest.
“We want learning to be fun, we want learning to be relevant, and we want students to reach their goals in a hands on, hip environment where they can be challenged and inspired, while building self-confidence.” ~Elizabeth Chaves.
Our main location is conveniently located in the heart of the Tuscawilla Golf Community in Winter Springs, minutes away from Oviedo, Casselberry, and Orlando and walking distance from Indian Trails Middle School, Keeth Elementary, and Rainbow Elementary. We recently added our Apopka location, at Journey Christian Church and our Longwood location, at Northland Church.
Whether it’s music lessons, local performances, or summer camp, we focus on three main principles:
Creative Inspiration: We believe you can never stop learning and growing. Our amazing instructors work to inspire students in fun creative ways each week, using proven techniques & their musical experience to help develop and foster the student’s own creative expression.
Guided Discipline: We are committed to encouraging students on their musical journey while instilling a healthy discipline to practice. Through weekly accountability from our qualified instructors, we strive to help students reach their highest potential.
Polished Performance: We highly encourage all students to participate in various performance opportunities that we provide throughout the year. Working towards a recital or live show provides added motivation and focus, and mastering a piece of music on stage in front of an audience helps build character and confidence. Your Music Box instructors and our amazing community of families will be there to support fellow students and celebrate their success!
WHAT WE OFFER:
•Music Recitals/Concerts (click here for more info) (December & May annually): The Music Box hosts bi-annual student showcases to focus on our third principle: polished performance. Performances allows us the opportunity to coach students in stage presence, audience engagement, self-awareness, and setting performance based goals. Our showcases include a Friday night ‘concert’ for more advanced students to perform with a live band, as well as several more ‘traditionally themed’ recitals that we offer throughout that weekend. Performances include student collaborations, duets, performance groups, student bands, and solo opportunities. Amazing recital portraits are included for every performer by Serena Nicole Studios.
•Local Performance Opportunities: through local partnerships that we’ve built through the years, students have opportunities to perform at community events and festivals year round (Taste of Oviedo, Great Day In The Country, Light Up UCF, Solar Bears games, etc.)
•Performance Groups (click here to see options!) (performance-based singing groups for beginning, intermediate, and advanced level singers).
•Workshops: Throughout the year we offer workshops and master classes that include song writing, music theory, audition prep and more!
•Convenient location in the heart of Tuscawilla Country Club in Winter Springs, Journey Christian Church in Apopka, & our Longwood location, at Northland Church.
