10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. Monday - Friday.

4. A proven track record of excellence since 1999.
Visit our testimonial page to see what our students are saying. Every year, aspiring music teachers start their own studio, and a year or two later it’s closed. TK Music has a proven track record of offering quality music, piano, guitar, voice, and drum lessons (and more) in Nutley, New Jersey year round. Our full time mission is teaching music lessons trusted by hundreds of families for over sixteen years.
5. A comfortable parent's lounge for our clients. We have the most comfortable and parent friendly waiting area in Nutley.
Instead of waiting in a music retail store showroom, our clients enjoy a comfortable, professional parent's lounge with comfortable chairs, kids toys, Wi-Fi, magazines and bottled water service. We also provide observation windows on every door so that you can watch your child's lesson while you wait. Or if you prefer you can sit in on their lesson anytime you like.
6. Fully stocked music lesson rooms!
Our rooms are stocked with everything you need for music lessons, including amps, stereos, 2 full drum kits in our drum room, keyboards, pianos and more. All you need to bring is your instrument. (no need to bring pianos and drum sets) We have spent thousands of dollars on our studio to offer soundproofing and observation windows.
7. Music recitals onsite and our annual rock show performance!
We are one of the only music schools in Nutley that offers recitals twice a year on a Steinway-designed “Boston” grand piano. In June and December many of our students choose to perform in our biannual recitals. We hold these onsite at TK Music on Darling Ave. Trophies are awarded at recitals.
Advanced and intermediate piano students perform on a 9-foot Steinway grand piano in June every year at the Steinway Gallery in Paramus, NJ. Special plaques for graduating high school seniors are awarded at this event.
Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital.
We also host a Rock Show once a year, which gives your child the opportunity to play with a live rock band! Our Rock Show is held at a professional club in Teaneck, NJ. Your child will love the opportunity to rock out on the big stage with a real rock band. You are encouraged to bring your family and friends to the show to share in the fun.
8. Professional office staff six days a week to serve you.
We strive to offer you the best customer service six days a week.
We have three office team members who are available at the front desk to assist you with everything you need quickly and professionally.
9. Trophies, certificates and award wristbands to celebrate achievement.
We are the only music school in the Nutley are that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces (see pictures to the right) by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder is our unique method of music education that you can only get here.
More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins. You can only get the Musical Ladder here. We also specialize in music lessons for adults.
10. Royal Academy Music Development Program assessment preparation and audition prep for musical theater students.
TK Music is a founding school of the RCMDP, national standard for serious and high achieving music student available for all major instruments. We prepare select few students to participate in the assessment. Participating and receiving certificates for their appropriate levels are often added to their college applications.
We are dedicated in preparing any musical theater students interested in auditioning for school plays and/or local productions. Many leading and supporting roles at local school productions have been proudly performed by TK students!
11. Sibling / Family Discounts
We offer discounts for siblings and family members. Most families are scheduled at the same time to save time and money.
12. Books, instruments, accessories, and equipment sold on site.
No more searching for that book, musical equipment, or accessory you need for the next lesson. For your convenience, we sell books, guitars, amps, tuners etc. We know sometimes it’s not easy to go out and buy a guitar or a piano on your own. We are ready to help you decide on your next musical purchase. We also offer assistance with shopping for your piano at a local dealer.
13. Early morning and lunch time lessons for homeschoolers, retirees, college students and working professionals.
This allows us to offer lessons as early as 10 a.m. and we are able to see students between the hours of 11 a.m.-2 p.m. If you are a homeschool parent, retiree, college student or working professional who has a flexible schedule, take advantage of our early morning and lunch time lesson spots.
14. Convenient location near Route 3 and the Garden State Parkway (Exit 151).
Due to its central location, our school is convenient and easy to find off of Rt 3 and the GSP. Close to our school, you will find great shopping and restaurants. We have many students from Nutley, Bloomfield, Clifton, Montclair, Glen Ridge, Bellevile, and Rutherford.
15. No Contract.
Unlike some schools, you do not have to sign a contract for the semester or the year. You are allowed to withdraw from lessons at any point of the year. If you submit a withdrawal form by the 15th of the month, you may stop attending your lessons at the end of that month.
If you are ready to start, you have nothing to lose as we only want students who truly want to be here and we will not commit you to a long term contract.
