Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
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 yer old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than a fifty-seven year old taking up piano for the 2nd time ater 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 fac tthat every student is an individual.
If you enroll here for lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that wil 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.
We teach all styes from rock, pop, jazz, country, blues and classical.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Our teachers have received their education from prestigious institutions such as University of Texas, Wayne State University (Detroit), Southwestern Texas Seminary, Bowling Green State University, and Winona State University.

In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and strive to get to know eah student and their parents on a personal level.
