Need a new theme for your music school?
We’ve searched the web for the best and most relevant themes for a musical organization, and these are the top five we found.
The themes included here were designed with music schools in mind (except for Crown Art, but more on that later!) and have all the tools you need. They’re packed with useful features in addition to their gorgeous designs.
Music school WordPress themes
These themes have been designed for music schools like yours and stand out from the rest. They’re all responsive so they look great on mobile devices, and they also have been published or updated within the last year.Here are my top picks for best music school WordPress themes for 2020.
1. Melody by Ancora Themes (Themeforest)
Melody is a clean and professionally designed WordPress theme for music schools. It has fantastic reviews from its customers for reasons including code quality, design quality, customizability, and customer support.
Serif fonts are rare on the web these days, but Melody inserts them in titles to create a more sophisticated and traditional style that fits an educational institution well. There’s also an excellent balance of text, images, and color.
Melody has a one-click demo installer which is an excellent way for a new site to get started. Instead of starting from a blank canvas, you can use this tool to instantly import all the content from the demo website. Your site will look just like the screenshot above in a few moments.
2. Crown Art by Ancora Themes (Themeforest)
Crown Art is a gorgeous theme for art schools. Yup, it’s branded for art schools but it adapts very well to music schools as well.
This theme has a gorgeous (customizable) color palette and presents all the text and media masterfully. It’s full of creative accents and little touches that give the template a premium look.
As a theme for small art schools, you’ll find Crown Art has a lot of very practical features. For instance, you can display a sortable gallery of all your available classes. Visitors can choose a type of class to instantly update the list of classes available. You could allow them to sort by instrument or ability level as an example.
Like some other themes here, you can also promote your upcoming events with Crown Art. Each event page has plenty of space for a description, event details like the time/date, and a Google Maps embed so visitors can get directions.
3. Solfeggio by CMS Masters (Themeforest)
Solfeggio has a unique design that makes it stand out from the crowd. With the right images and brand, this theme could be a perfect fit for your music organization.
One of the creative touches in this theme is the menu which appears to hang down from the header in a playful fashion. You can add dropdown menu items and even create mega menus using the tools included in this premium theme.
There’s a drag-and-drop system you can use to create the designs for your pages and also shortcodes to insert page sections inside any post or page. Each component has a pretty simple design, but it works well for page building.
Solfeggio also integrates with The Events Calendar so you can promote classes and other scheduled events.
4. Singerella by TemplateMonster
Singerella is the most traditional theme here. It doesn’t stand out as much, but it’s straightforward and well designed for a music school website.
Powered by the Elementor drag-and-drop page builder, Singerella allows you to quickly design pages using the many pre-designed elements that come included. Each element is extremely customizable which provides a ton of flexibility. We have a guide on page building with Elementor if you want to learn more.
Singerella also has a variety of header and footer styles to choose from. This makes it easy to fit your logo into either section regardless of its shape and size. Another cool aspect of this music theme is that all 15 of the stock photos included in the demo site come bundled with your theme. If you have a new business and don’t have a lot of great photos from around your school yet, this will be a great way to get started.
5. NotaCorda by Like Themes (Themeforest)
Want a fun and friendly design for your site? You can’t beat NotaCorda.
This template has rounded sans-serif fonts that are very inviting, playful background textures, and a warm color palette that is easy on the eyes. For any beginner musicians, this aesthetic will help make your business more approachable and may result in more students signing up for classes.
NotaCorda works with the free Events Calendar plugin and has some cool layouts built in for showcasing your upcoming classes. It’s also WooCommerce-ready meaning you can add a complete eCommerce store to your site. Lastly, the Visual Composer plugin comes bundled with NotaCorda and can be used to create entirely custom page templates.
Which music school theme is best for you?
You’d do well with any of these themes, but Melody stands out because of its rave customer reviews and exceptional design.
Each theme has its strengths and weaknesses. Before you spend too much time evaluating the design. Make sure that the theme you choose has the features you need. For instance, if you plan on advertising classes and events, you’ll want a theme that has a built-in event management system or integration with a plugin that does this.
Once you narrow down the list to the themes with the functionality you need it’s simply a matter of picking your favorite design.
