The Toedtman School of Music, currently located in Cincinnati Ohio’s suburb of Sharonville, was founded by Melissa and John K. Toedtman in the Spring of 1974.

By 1982 the School had outgrown its home on Laurel Avenue in Madeira Ohio. The School moved to a new location in Montgomery, the historic Blair House on Remington Road.

In 1985, after more growth, another move was made to the magnificent Hauck family summer estate at 12171 Mosteller Road in northern Sharonville.

Currently the Toedtman School of Music is conveniently located at 9678 Cincinnati Columbus Rd, West Chester, OH 45241. From our centrally located facility we service the entire Greater Cincinnati area.

Music and Voice Lessons in Cincinnati

Music is not a privilege; it is a necessity to the human spirit. With the advent of electronics, our society has become one of passive and not active participation. It is imperative that we retain the human element by continuing to train and educate our present and future generations musically. There is much research data available concerning the educational, psychological, and physical benefits of active participation in making music.

The purpose of the Toedtman School of Music is to continue providing the highest quality of teaching to the more than 500 students attending weekly private lessons.

Our goal is to expand our presence in the community by creating cultural activities and group activities, to be more inclusive and responsive to our ever expanding neighborhoods with concerts, workshops, music and theater camps, and activities celebrating our international diversity.
