Groove Music School

Founded by Gonzalo Arjona in 2015, Groove Music School in Sugar Land offers private lessons on all musical instruments for all ages. A lifelong music enthusiast, Arjona started school after his own professional path took him away.

“Wanting to be my own boss and bringing music back into my life was the inspiration to start Groove,” he said.

We caught up with Arjona, who shared more of her thoughts on her business, Small Business Saturday and Houston.

Being an entrepreneur and small business owner in Houston …

“Houston is a great place to have a small business and interact with the community. The diversity that our city has to offer is unmatched and to be able to enjoy it as part of my daily routine is truly an honor.

On his favorite part about owning Groove Music School…

“My favorite part is working directly with my clients and seeing them every week, both my students and what I call ‘my parents.’ Some of them have been with me since day one! You can’t help but build relationships.

Small business Saturday …

“I think this is a great way to bring attention to mom and pop stores during a busy shopping season that’s increasingly monopolized by national and online retailers. It’s great to be recognized.

About Houston …

“Houston is home. This is where my children were born and raised, where I built a family, a business, a life. It’s a big part of me and I’d like to think I’m a small part of it.
