about us banner

Founder/Director, Isabel Benemelis - We’re all affected by the music we hear during our infancy. In my case, I was born in Cuba, and while I was greatly influenced by the Afro-Cuban rhythms, the mambo and the son. I began playing at the age of 4, and by age 7, I was introduced to classical music by my piano teacher. I was instantly mesmerized by the music of Beethoven, Chopin and Bach. Their compositions became my passion and by the age of 13, I was a concert pianist and performed solo recitals before hundreds of people. I truly love my work as music director and teacher at Falls Church Music Conservatory. I have a true passion for what I do and I recognize that it is a privilege.

The Falls Church Music Conservatory (FCMC) is located in the heart of the city of Falls Church, Virginia. We opened our doors in 1995 to promote music and artistic expression in our community. As music educators, we teach and inspire our students to achieve the highest individual level attainable, as well as to enjoy and appreciate music. Since its opening, more than one thousand students have seen their lives enriched by an appreciation of music. Our goal is to provide quality professional music instruction at reasonable rates to students of all ages and abilities. The Faculty of the Conservatory is comprised of classically trained, performing musicians who possess a wide range of talents and teaching styles.
