This place rocks! Best birthday party yet. My 7 yr old and her friends had the best time painting. Booking the party was a breeze, and it was no-stress planning. Lara and her staff are fabulous! We’ll definitely be back for more events.” -Vickie H.

I come from a family of professional musicians and I am very impressed with Jonathan. After at least a decade behind the drums he picked up exactly where I needed and helped me on my way to serious growth. I plan on being a student as long as he is around. The faculty is very personable and helpful. I feel right at home with everyone. I highly recommend Play!” – Billy M.
