John and Loria Preston are the founders of Preston Music Academy. They have both been teaching children for over 35 years. Both John and Loria have a Washington State Teaching Certificate and a Master's In Curriculum and Instruction. 

The Prestons believe children are naturally creative and learn best in a positive and loving environment. They want to help children develop a love for music that will last a lifetime. And encourage kids to become lifelong learners who enjoy listening to and playing music. Preston Music Academy encourages children in their musical development through creative and engaging lessons, learning music theory through electronic and fun review games, composing, learning to play from lead sheets and playing familiar songs that they know.
