Hello! My name is Raffia Thomas and I am the director of the newly established Raffia Music Studio music school based in Lomita California. Since RMS opened its doors for business last fall our primary goal has been to find a way to help fill the music education void that has been created in both our public school system and in the lives of children that are underserved and underprivileged. As budgets have been dramatically cut nationally music education programs have disappeared from classrooms all over the country. Additionally, music education programs for those children that are less fortunate are almost nonexistent. Up to this point Raffia Music Studio has been actively and successfully enrolling students for private music lessons. We offer private one on one lessons for voice, piano, guitar, drums and bass guitar. Our teachers are well trained and experienced professionals who share the same vision as we do.
