is universal. It has infinite variations and levels. There is a style
of music to fit everyone's taste. Whether you want to sing jazz
standards, play a violin concerto or fiddle tune, play a Chopin prelude
on the piano, fingerpick some fiery flamenco guitar, rip an electric
guitar solo, or just accompany yourself or others singing, the Academy
of Music can help achieve your musical goals.
Here we focus solely on music education. We offer a family-type
atmosphere with one-on-one private music lessons and group classes on
practically all instruments and voice. Our curriculum includes
technique, theory, ear training, sight reading, and improvisational
skills. We have an extremely talented and friendly staff of
well-educated teachers who are professional musicians. We believe a
strong bond between student and teacher is imperative to the learning
process. Our instructors are absolutely the best!

Reasons that make
us the best choice for you:
Focus on Teaching Music
All we do is teach music. This leaves us free to specialize in one thing
- providing the highest quality of music instruction.
instructors are highly qualified, experienced, and have extensive
performance experience. Most are already teaching in local schools.
Most importantly, our instructors strive to relate their teaching to
each individual student's learning style.
All Ages –Beginners to Advanced
Our current students range from 6 years
old to many students in their 60's and 70's. We take care to teach what you want to learn. We strive to make playing music an important and enjoyable part of life for students of all ages and levels.
Private lessons ensure that the student
has the undivided attention of the teacher and can progress at a personal level.
students sometimes feel more comfortable in a group-learning situation,
we also offer group classes in Beginning Guitar, Voice, and Ensemble
Playing. We keep the classes small, and divide them into 2 sections-
one for children and one for adults. They are held in 6-week sessions.
Regular Concerts and Recitals
Recitals and concerts are held at least
twice a year. These provide students with performance experience and build confidence.
Participation in music festivals, competitions and workshops is also available.
We offer full training in repertoire,
studies, technique, ear training and sight-reading to prepare classical students
for college entrance exams.
