For Rach Waits, who owns The Studio in downtown Centreville with her husband John, music appreciation is a way of life. “John and I both have music degrees, and we wanted our four children to be able to receive music instruction locally. John was the visonary behind our fine arts studio.” The Studio offers guitar and piano instructions, as well as lessons in all forms of dance including ballet, tap and jazz. They also offer baton lessons, cheernastics, and Kindermusik. “Music is very valuable for our community, and we were thrilled to be able to open our studio this January.” said Waits.
