Johann & Lydia Solomon
Music Central is the heart song of Lydia and Johann Solomon. A musical couple, who by their common love of music and love of teaching, have established a place where aspiring musicians can discover the gift of music within themselves and share it with the world whichever way they choose to.
We believe that music cannot be forced on anyone, but can only be realized with proper guidance, attention and care.
Music Central is the place for anyone wanting to realize the gift of music within.

Her commitment to training musicians has sowed seeds in many young lives who are now masters in their craft.
With a desire to teach music to children, she also began Music for Little Mozarts a unique, and highly popular program for children to discover their musical talents. This further fueled the dream of a music school where children and adults would discover and love music like never before. It was this vision that led to the establishing of Music Central.
