“St. Mary’s Music Academy has had a remarkable impact on our lives. Our boys – one violist, one cellist – have developed more than just musical knowledge and appreciation. Through lessons and instruction at St. Mary’s both have grown more confident in their technical abilities, their musical acumen, and their ‘stage presence’. So impressive has St. Mary’s been that I now take piano lessons there (over 30 years since I last played!) and my five year old daughter will begin piano this year. We owe tremendous thanks to the outstanding faculty at St. Mary’s Music Academy!”
