About the Bellaire Music Academy
The Bellaire Music Academy provides a unique curriculum for students to gain the upper edge in their vocal endeavors. Our teachers create a personalized system for their students so that each may grow at their highest potential. In private lessons at the Academy, students will learn the fundamentals of music theory, the basics of sight-singing, and gain a strong foundation in vocal technique. Our goal is for students to leave their time at the Academy with a well-rounded knowledge of both the elements of music and vocal technique.
