Our early childhood and beginning piano classes provide an exciting atmosphere for learning for families who prefer small group instruction. CAM is home of the award winning SPLASH! Summer Camps.

Few things compare to the reward of seeing a student experience the joy of accomplishment through music. The relationships we build with our students and their families makes CAM a truly unique place, a supportive community brought together by our shared love of music.

How did you get started teaching?

Charlotte Academy of Music was founded in 2008, twenty years after Executive Director Regina Ziliani accepted her first piano student. Having operated successful studios in Spartanburg, SC and San Jose, CA, it was evident upon moving to North Carolina that the south Charlotte area needed a school providing quality music education. In 2004 Regina opened a home piano studio in Mint Hill, which quickly grew to over 80 students and a full waiting list.

It had long been a dream of Regina’s to open a music school where students of all ages could take private lessons, group classes, play in ensembles and be a part of a thriving, inspiring musical community. As enrollment continued to increase in her home studio, it became evident that it was time to explore the vision once again. Charlotte Academy of Music offered it’s first classes in September of 2008, and has proven to be one of the fastest growing music schools in the area. In March 2009 the Academy expanded it’s facility and in June 2013 expanded again! The Academy now includes 12 sound proofed teaching studios, a performance space and spacious waiting room. CAM is also very proud to have been names a Founding School for the Royal Conservatory’s Music Development Program.

The outstanding Faculty has grown as well, now comprised of over 20 dedicated teachers. The Academy’s commitment to excellence, an outstanding faculty and many devoted families are what make our school unique. We look forward to sharing this musical journey with Charlotte area families for many generations to come.
