About Us

Stage Notes began in the fall of 2008 when owner, Becky, moved to Texas after teaching piano in her home state of Arkansas. Beginning in her tiny apartment, Becky began to grow her student base from the ground up. A year later, she hired her first student teacher, Alexa (now Assistant Manager at the Keller location) and moved Stage Notes into its first studio location – a tiny, two room office suite. Two years and 3 additional teachers later, the studio moved into a 6 room office suite. Continuing to grow, it moved into its current location in Hurst 2 years and 5 additional teacher later. In the Spring of 2016, Stage Notes acquired Stomp Music Studios in Keller, which would become the second location of Stage Notes. With the addition of dance classes and a theater department in 2018, Stage Notes developed into a full range music and arts studio serving approximately 400 students each week. 

Throughout this incredible journey, owner Becky and her husband Devin have continued to focus on the importance of having a quality educational experience – while still having fun. Many schools focus on one of these at the expense of the other. Stage Notes believes that both can be accomplished at the same time. 🙂
