About Music Star Studios

History & Philosophy

Music Star Studios was started in 1996 by Emily Lowe. A Nashville native, Emily took private piano lessons from Bonnie Buckner, Enid Katahn and Jerry Reed over the course of 12 years. She then attended Centenary College of Louisiana where her hard work awarded her the prestigious White Scholarship, the only full music scholarship given on campus.

After graduating from Centenary with Honors in 1996, Emily moved back to Nashville and began teaching full time right away. Within a year she had built up her studio to more than 40 students and quickly attained a multi-year waiting list. She also began to make a name for herself in the Nashville music teaching community and has served on the Board of the Nashville Area Music Teachers Association for more than 10 years.

In business for over 15 years, recently, MSS has grown to more than 100 students with 16 teachers instructing Nashville's newest musicians.

Besides Emily's reputation for solid, foundational teaching, Music Star Studios will continue to grow for a couple of key reasons. First, at Music Star Studios we believe in making the music learning experience a positive one. We want our students to LOVE music the way that we do. Secondly, we believe in a high standard of learning and the joy of realizing achievements accomplished through hard work and dedication.
