The idea for THE HOUSE OF MUSIC LEARNING CENTER was born out of the love of music handed down from one generation to the next. Founders Angelo and Alex Grandinetti are father and son. Alex will tell you that he has had music around him all his life, his father’s bands and rock and jazz recordings. But when he started to play himself and tried to start a band of his own with a friend, his father sat down with him and taught him how to play the drums and how to practice with a band. That was when he first experienced the excitement and joy of being able to play a whole piece. He will never forget it. The song was Are You Gonna Be My Girl and with all due apologies to Jet, it was the first song they could play all the way through.
As time has passed both men realize how lucky they were. The son to have a dad who could show him the things he needed to know, instil a good work ethic in him and give him access to all of the instruments and equipment he would need. And the father, to have a son who was willing and able to learn, work hard and appreciate, the grand gift he was giving.
Now Angelo and Alex Grandinetti want to give that excitement and joy to another generation. HOUSE OF MUSIC LEARNING CENTER will give youngsters the ability to learn music and play with other likeminded individuals in a nurturing environment. They will have the same chance that father gave to son, all those years ago, the chance to play with someone who has been there before, a head start on a path to make music a part of them just as it has been for the Grandinetti, for so many years
