While you are here researching the best school for you, please consider the benefits of becoming an Academy student and find out why we are Santa Clarita, California's number one choice for music lessons.
10 Benefits of becoming an Academy student:
1. Piano, Guitar, Violin, Voice/Singing, Drums, Bass, and more in one location
This saves our students time and money, as one family can take multiple instruments on the same day. Other studios may offer multiple instruments, but we are the only one to offer music lessons on all of the most popular instruments: Electric Guitar & Acoustic Guitar, Piano, Voice/Singing, Drums, and Violin as well as Saxophone, Trumpet, and Flute.
2. The largest and most qualified teaching faculty in Santa Clarita
We have 16 music teachers, all with University training and professional performance experience. Our music teachers are dedicated to learning about your personal musical goals and helping you to acheive them. With several music teachers for each instrument, we are confident that we have the right teacher to meet your needs. In addition to their credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly, and dedicated to teaching you the style of music that you want to learn.
3. The widest range of lesson times available
2:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Monday - Friday
9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Saturday
4. A proven track record of excellence
View our testimonial page to see what our students are saying. Every year, aspiring music teachers start their own studio, and a year or two later it's closed. The Academy has a proven track record of offering quality music lessons, year round. Our full time mission is teaching music to music students.
5. A comfortable waiting room for parents
Instead of waiting in a music retail store showroom, our clients enjoy a spacious, professional waiting room with comfortable chairs, free Wi-Fi, magazines and bottled water service. We also provide large observation windows on every door so that you can watch your child's lesson while you wait. If you prefer, you can sit in on their lesson anytime you like.
6. Fully stocked lesson rooms
Our rooms are stocked with everything you need for lessons, including guitar and bass amps, drum kits with pads, pianos, keyboards, mirrors for singing, and more. All you need to bring is your instrument. Many of our rooms have been recently upgraded to include computers which allow your instructor to access such sites as YouTube and Lyric Search Engines. We have spent thousands of dollars on our studio to offer soundproofing and observation windows.
7. Regular recitals
At least twice every year, all of our students have the option of performing in our recitals. We feature two separate recitals each time: one for our solo instruments (pianists, vocalists, acoustic guitarists, violinists, etc.) and a rock concert for those who play such instruments as guitar, bass, and drums.
8. Professional office staff six days a week, 10 hours a day
Many music studios have an answering machine when you call or no one at the desk to assist you if you have questions. We have studio managers who are available at the front desk to assist our clients.
9. Located on Valley Center Drive, easily accessible from either Soledad Canyon Rd. or the Cross Valley Connector bridge that connects Newhall Ranch Rd. and Golden Valley
Due to its central location, our school is convenient to all areas of Santa Clarita, Valencia, Stevenson Ranch, Newhall and Canyon Country. Close to our studio, you will find great shopping and dining options.
10. Month to month lessons
The Academy does not require semester minimums for lessons. Every student here is on a month to month basis.
