SCHOOL HISTORY
  THE MUSIC SCHOOL, INC.
©2018 The Music School, Inc.
Jerome     Couture     and     Corinne     Beyer     collaborated     in     musical endeavors   as   students   at   the   San   Francisco   Conservatory   of   Music in   1980   and   were   married   in   1982. They   traveled   the   western   United States   and   Canada   performing   as   “The   Haute   Couture   Duo”   for   the next   two   years   and   settled   in   West   Linn,   Oregon   with   their   first   child on   the   way.   Jerome   taught   music   in   Public   School   while   Corinne taught private piano lessons. The   Music   School   was   founded   by   Jerome   and   Corinne   Couture   in the   basement   of   a   duplex   in   West   Linn,   Oregon   in   1986.   It   all   started with   one   student   and   by   1992   they   had   outgrown   the   space   with   60 students.
In   1993   The   Music   School   Inc.   moved   from   West   Linn   to   508   Main Street   in   Oregon   City,   Oregon.   Over   the   next   13   years   over   100,000 music lessons were taught from that building.
By   2006   several   extremely   noisy   neighboring   businesses   and   bad building   management   caused   the   Couture’s   to   buy   a   permanent building   and   move   the   school   back   to   West   Linn.   The   house   they purchased   for   this   purpose   was   built   in   1971   and   needed   so   many modifications     that     over     200     projects     were     completed     with continuous   construction   over   12   years   to   get   it   where   it   needed   to be.    Through    it    all,    Jerome    acted    as    contractor,    construction manager   and   carpenter   performing   the   construction   with   his   own hands with help from some amazing friends.
In   2015   Corinne   Couture   passed   away   from   a   subdural   hematoma. Undeterred,   Jerome   has   continued   the   cause   of   providing   the   highest level    of    educational    experience    with    the    most    supportive    and nurturing    environment    in    honor    of    her    life-long    sacrifice    to    music education    and    her    students.    Corinne    is    greatly    missed    but    still present in all that happens at The Music School.
