About Us

Marchwood Music opened its doors in September of 2010.  Our vision was simple:  provide the opportunity for any student to learn how to play a musical instrument in a fun, safe and supportive environment.

Rick Snow, owner and instructor, had a vision of a fun, local community-based musical environment that allowed students with varying skill sets and musical interests to be able to participate.

Our approach to teaching involves the delicate balance of theory, technique and allowing the students to pick the songs they wish to learn. The best way to get better at playing a musical instrument is through practice and keeping a positive attitude; the best motivator for practice is allowing students to participate in song selection.
