Music School in Charlotte, NC

Music Schools Charlotte, NC
Music Quarters is a family-owned and operated music school and studio. Serving the South Charlotte community since 2008, the Presley's opened the studio right in the neighborhood where the family grew up and attended school. 

The Presley Brothers were the typical kids as they started playing  music, they chose their instruments; played them for a short while, put them down, picked the instruments up again and tinkered around with teaching themselves and taking lessons. When they were around eleven to twelve years old, they got serious and stuck with it!

Now they are professional musicians and making music their career along with operating and working in the studio.

Since we are a musical family, we understand the needs of the parents when getting their child started learning a musical instrument. We try to help answer questions, discussing practice requirements and how we can all work together to keep the child on track with developing his or her musical talents.

Studio Executive Team

Ashby Presley, Vice President
Ashby Presley is co-owner and studio manager of Music Quarters at Colony Place Shopping Center. You will more than likely be greeted by her when you stop in or call, so anytime you have questions or need assistance, she is always available to help.

If you were to ask Ashby what her passions are in life, they would be traveling, music and photography. She has been fortunate to work in the travel industry for over 25 years and has had many opportunities to travel.

Now she is operating her own music studio and takes any opportunity possible to listen to live music.  Ashby grew up playing the guitar and plays today for her own personal enjoyment.

Her photography passion began as a teenager and has followed her throughout her life, allowing her to photograph her travels and music events over the years. Photographing her sons’ gigs has been one of her favorite subjects! Along with managing the music studio, she is also developing and growing her photography business.

“Music has always been a big part of my life; I have several relatives very talented musically. I never took music to the level my sons have achieved but I love all types of music and couldn’t image living life without listening to music on a daily basis!” - Ashby
