The Music Academy Group & Private lessons in State College, PA
Our environment is one where students seeking preparation for a professional career, as well as those interested in "playing for fun", are equally encouraged. Because we welcome students of all ages and skill levels, our primary objective is to help them realize their "personal best".
As long-standing members of the National Guild for Community Arts Education, our school is required to maintain Faculty members who hold degrees (many of them advanced) in the instruments in which they teach; this insures that you and your family are receiving the highest quality instruction and education available.
The Music Academy continues valuable arts traditions like student recitals, workshops, performance opportunities, scholarship competitions, special events, and an extensive music library.
