    5.   Proven ten-year track record of excellence

Visit our Customer Feedback page to see what our students are saying.  Every year, aspiring music teachers start their own studio, and a year or two later they close. The Academy of Music in Grand Rapids has a proven track record of offering quality music instruction in Grand Rapids, Michigan year round. Our full time mission is teaching music, and we have been trusted by Grand Rapids families for more than a decade.

    6.   Fully stocked music lesson rooms.

We stock our rooms with everything needed for music lessons, including guitar and bass amps, stereos, full drum kits with pads, keyboards, pianos and iPads for teachers to use.  All you need to bring is your instrument.  We have invested in our studio to offer soundproofing and large observation windows.

   7.   Motivating Performance Opportunities That Develop Poise and Confidence

We are the only music school in Grand Rapids that offers free recitals twice a year in a first class professional recital hall with a grand Steinway piano, excellent acoustics, and stage platform.

Every parent wants to know how their child is doing and whether they are progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in guitar, ukulele, bass, piano, voice, drum or string lessons is really worth it is to have their child participate in a recital.

In May and December, most of our students choose to perform in our biannual music recitals.  We hold these recitals in a location where students can perform on a stage platform with a grand piano

These music recitals are free for our students.  We do not charge recital participation or admission fees.

            The Academy of Music in Grand Rapids is the only music school in Grand Rapids that offers full time professional customer service for their music students five days a week.

Many music studio desks are staffed by the teacher/owner or more commonly, an answering machine.  We have full time staff members who are available at the Academy of Music front desk to assist our clients quickly and professionally. 

In addition, we work hard to communicate with our music students so that you will always have the information you need when you need it.
