Why are we different?

The mission of the A+ Music Academy is to provide outstanding music instruction in a personalized learning environment and to establish a foundation for life-long growth in music while enhancing the quality of our community’s musical life.
Each student will be given a ½ hour private session, with parents more than welcome to attend.
