Bringing music to life for students since 1952

Vance Music Studios was founded by Chester S. Vance Jr. (1929 – 2008) in Kansas City, Kansas in 1952. The studio moved to Wichita in 1972 and since that time has been serving South Central Kansas drawing students from a 100-mile radius and with students representing eight different school districts.

Vance Music’s teaching staff is comprised of talented musicians with over 100 years of accumulated teaching experience. Several instructors have been fortunate to study with many esteemed musicians including Chester.
