7. Free music recitals!

We have multiple opportunities to participate in academy wide recitals throughout the year with NO participation fees. Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it is to have their child participate in a recital.

A message from the director

Music has always been an integral part of my life. I have a passion to encourage others to explore the opportunity of playing music. The ability to play an instrument or sing beautifully offers a lifetime of benefits. Music lessons also foster a student’s personal, social, and academic development. The Memphis Music Academy has made substantial investments in its facility to provide an uplifting environment designed to foster creativity, confidence and joy.

If you’ve been told you are tone deaf or uncoordinated, we're here to inform you that everyone can improve their musical skills. In my tenure at Memphis Music Academy, my greatest satisfaction has been watching our students excel during performances and gain confidence in their ability even beyond their expectations. We make it our mission to help Memphis Music Academy students explore and develop their talents, wherever their curiosity and interests lead them.
