    My daughter enjoys her voice and piano lessons very much! The teachers are great!

  • Morna Pixton

    My kids have been taking piano lessons from Thomas for the last year and love him! He's fun and funny, and doesn't talk down to them. He's amazingly talented and plays piano with and for them, which is inspiring. I would recommend him to anyone.

  • Dawn Habib

    My daughter Sofia took the summer Camp "A Touch of Broadway" with no prior experience. Since the day she walked through the door, Sofia has just blossomed. Being a very shy child, I was unsure of how she would do ... but the teachers at NHAOPA welcomed her and have helped her start to really shine! She's excited to take part in the acting, singing and dance and eagerly practices every day! I'm so happy that she has found her place in this amazing school!

    My daughter has been taking vocal lessons with Billy for 2 years now. Using the Mix Voice technique, she is training her voice in a healthy way in all types of music. She has grown tremendously! She looks forward to her lesson with Mr. Billy who is fun, extremely knowledgeable and professional!!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

That question is often asked by prospective students. Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals. 
We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach. 
A seven year old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than a fifty seven year old taking up piano for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child. 
The main reason to choose the Academy as your music lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual. 
If you enroll here for lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first lesson your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Our teachers have received their education from prestigious institutions .Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of the US and Europe and have over 25 years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

All students are on a month to month basis. We do not require any long term contracts or semester minimums. 

Lessons are taught on a once a week basis .

Lessons start as low as $35.00 per lesson and are billed in full at the beginning of each month.

What types of students have you worked with?

We work with students of all talent levels and ages. We have students who are total beginners and just want to sound good at karaoke or a school talent show.  We also  have professional students who are actively working around the world in their craft.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Definitely try out some different teachers and find what fits YOU the student best. Not every teacher is right for every student. A teacher should be able to connect with the student on an emotional level and understand where you are coming from.
