About EchoKids

Our Story

hands with hearts

EchoKids started as a final class project at Berklee College of Music from the vision to build a modern, music education company for kids. Our founder, Shizuno, had been teaching kids piano for some time and other Berklee students would often say they want to teach but didn't know how to start.

So Shizuno gave them tips, provided students for them and noticed there was a big gap between the supply and demand.

As she began creating worksheets for students and friends, EchoKids was born in 2020. It continues to evolve as the student and mentor number increase, dive into tech, and offer more instruments for lessons.


EchoKids is an innovative music education company for kids 0-18 years mentored by collegiate musicians. Our music curriculum focuses on the 3C’s: Communication, Confidence and Creativty.

Our mentors are college students passionate in sharing their love for music, knowing its strong power to better children’s lives. We strive to  bring the most exciting and affordable music experience for children.

Our teaching method is simply based on the fact that if they want to play music, they will want to learn.

Growth Through Music: Confidence, Communication, Creativity

the 3c's:
our secret sauce

Communication: Our students learn from welcoming mentors who open up to our students to encourage communication.  

Confidence: We showcase our students twice a year at recitals and kids showoff their skills at schools.

Creativity: Our workbooks have pages to draw, and Platinum members get a custom produced song.
