Having received their education from some of the most prestigious and renowned music institutions from around the world and mentorship from world-class musicians and educators, our instructors bring an unparalleled level of expertise and musical traditions to each classroom. With advanced University Degrees and a wealth of national and international performance experience, they impart not only knowledge but also a deep love for music.

Monthly Recitals and Concerts

At the Academy, we firmly believe that a comprehensive music education is incomplete without ample opportunities for performance. Performing helps to foster self-confidence, and pride, as well as provide a valuable experience that helps to develop our most important life skills. At the Academy we go beyond the standard by offering our students a rich spectrum of performance opportunities. While some music schools might settle for two recitals per year, we take pride in providing our students with a diverse range of venues and events where they can showcase their talents. From the grand stage of the UA Fred Fox School of Music during our Ensembles Festival Gala and the All School Music Recital, to the intimate settings of bookstores, assisted living facilities, churches, and local public events, we ensure all our students have the chance to shine before their families, friends, and the wider Tucson community.
