Business Spotlight: The Musik Planet
(This article contains excerpts from The Musik Planet)
With a rich history in music instruction, Chris Plante and his wife opened The Musik Planet to share the art of music with Riversiders. The Musik Planet is a music lessons studio in Riverside that provides a wide range of instruction including piano, guitar, voice, drum, bass guitar, banjo, ukulele, violin, cello, viola, saxophone, clarinet and trumpet. Opening its doors in August of 2008, they serve students in Riverside, Corona, Norco, San Bernardino, Alta Loma, Moreno Valley and Perris. With such a diverse and experienced staff of instructors, The Musik Planet is able to help a broad spectrum of musicians develop and expand their skills. The Musik Planet provides a very comfortable environment where musicians can come focus on becoming well versed musicians, free from stress and intimidation.
Chris Plante, Owner of The Musik Planet, is dedicated to guiding students to a future in music.
“Reading music precisely and developing the skill versatility are the pathways to success for musicians today,” says Plante.
As a Founding School and testing center for the Royal Conservatory Music Program, The Musik Planet is able to provide their students with tools and resources to excel. The Royal Conservatory Music Development Program (Music Development Program) provides a recognized national standard of musical success through an effectively sequenced course of study from beginner to advanced levels.
According to Chris Plante, Owner, Riverside was a great place to start their business because of the central location and close proximity to the college universities. College students are often potential music instructors, which is a great advantage when building a strong team of instructors. The Music Development Program inspires excellence through individual student assessments and allows students to celebrate accomplishment and track their progress with others across the country. It also supports teachers with high-quality and innovative resources.
Not only does The Musik Planet deliver high quality instruction and guidance to their musicians, they hold recitals and performances on a monthly basis so the students can embrace the art of live performance. As a one-stop-shop for musicians to explore their talents, The Musik Planet instructs, sells instruments, rents instruments, offers recording space, and hosts performances.
