Otto Performance Studio Mission:

Luke Otto and Otto Performance Studio strive to educate growing musicians, vocalists and pianists of varying musical backgrounds the necessary musical and technical skills and resources to be become self-critical, reliant, motivated and aware musical performers through weekly lessons, goal setting and regularly performing and networking with peers.  

By becoming self-critical, self-reliant, motivated, aware and effective musical performers, students also garner and cultivate interpersonal skills, the ability to communicate effectively, and most importantly the ability to listen, empathize, and think independently, while fostering a life-long love, support and involvement in music.
