Mike and Jennifer make a strong
both inside and outside of the studio.
Associated with Virginia’s the Crooked Road and their Traditional Music Education Program
and with the Roanoke Youth Symphony Orchestra, we have formed a hybrid curriculum
that teaches classical music and traditional
Blue Ridge Mountain music.
Floyd Music School is located at 115 W Main Street in Floyd, VA.
The 2-story brick building contains quite a bit of musical history–
The original 1934-1936 building received a rear addition circa 1946
and became known as the Pix Theater,
hosting musical performances by the likes of bluegrass musicians,
Bill and Charlie Monroe and Roy Hall.
