Before arrival to Trio School, please, read our policy and schedule your TRIAL lesson.
No walkins welcome.

Trio School has been primarily established as a music school, where our students also get enrolled in such courses as Languages, Dance, Math and Chess, which are offered by our university educated professors. We believe that Music, dance, math, and chess, as well as languages have a lot in common. Music is a language itself; language has intonation, pitch, rhythm, and expressiveness, which are common features of music. Dance has the rhythm and expressiveness, and the dance is the language. Math, chess music, and dance all have pattern recognition. For music you need the musical hearing and ability to count the beats; for math you have to be good with numbers and calculating; for chess you need to have good “vision” and calculating abilities. That is why; our school is actually the school of Music, Dance, Languages, Math and Chess. You will learn much more if you take time to read all the materials posted on our website


Our Math instructors are professional teachers, some of whom have successfully taught Math at a university level for decades and who have helped hundreds of their students. Their teaching styles are highly strategic and effective. Their methods involve development of students’ attitude and motivation, investing in the fundamentals, attending to careless mistakes, progressive dynamic response, teaching proofs of formulas, not the formulas themselves, putting the concept in context of the entire Discipline.
They teach Elementary Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, College Algebra, Math Analysis, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus, Calculus BC, College Calculus (Single Variable), College Calculus (Multi Variable), Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Statistics, AP Statistics, College Statistics.
They train their students to exercise logical thinking, reasoning; as well as various techniques, strategies and skills of problem solving. They know how to find out what are the strengths of the students and guide them to make the best use of their strengths in the applications. They find out where the weaknesses and gaps are and work towards improving these areas in the quickest possible way. Their students always gain confidence quickly and enjoy their learning experiences.
