A New Breed of Teachers
"I believe every student deserves the opportunity to study with an enthusiastic and knowledgeable teacher, one who is personally invested in that student's progress and development, and well versed in the challenges of performance."
-Joe Ferrante, President
Not Your Everyday Music Intructors
Come experience the difference studying with a degreed professional makes. While there are many who offer neighborhood lessons, there is no comparison to studying with a truly knowledgeable, experienced professional in the field. The vast majority of our instructors are public performers, many of whom write their own music and perform at various venues throughout the year. This is not your typical neighborhood music lesson. We believe in the quality of our teachers so much that we even offer the first lesson on us. Come try the Academy for yourself, and find out why having all degreed teachers makes all the difference!
