Tonal Center Music was founded in 1999 by Kurt Hauser as a music lesson studio in Tempe, AZ in 1999. That year we moved to the current location on W. University Dr. in Tempe. We have had several wonderful instructors teach lessons on guitar, bass and piano over the years. Tonal Center also operates as a music publisher administering the works of Kurt Hauser, Arizona Acoustic Duo and Trio Salado.

Currently Tonal Center offers guitar, piano and bass lessons. Instruction in music theory,  composition and production. 

My Passion

Every day I push myself the be the best I can be, whether that is playing guitar, piano composing electronic music or songs for my band. I also am driven to share my love of music by teaching others. There is no better feeling than helping others realize their dreams of music. I am also an avid runner and meditator. 

My Goals

To continue to push my music forward through diligent hard work and mindfulness. To pass my knowledge on to other as a way to build community and forge new connections between all people. To spread love and beauty as far as I can. To leave the world better than I found it.
