Detroit School of Music
The Detoit School of Music is located in what was formerly the Malcolm X Academy, a building that used to be a part of the public school system. The School was founded in 2012 by Carole Hoste and she got her start in teaching music with The Grosse Pointe Music Academy when it was just a small operation above a liquor store in Grosse Pointe Park. Carole watched as the GPMA went from a one-man operation above the popular liquor Store to a full commercial building with 20 teachers employed and a full-time receptionist. The Detoit School of Music offers lessons in Piano, Drums, Voice, Woodwinds (flute, clarinet & saxophone)
