Kids (and parents) often experience pressure and competition in the activities they choose - martial arts, sports, academics. Music can create such a different experience for them.    

Here at Hope & Joy Music Academy kids find a way to express themselves through music, boost their self-confidence, and experience personal success on a weekly basis. Our environment is free from competition and pressure as each student works at his/her own pace, the perfect pace, to grow as a musician.

We like to have fun while learning!

 Well-Rounded Approach and Variety of Options

Your lessons are tailored to your interests and goals, and sessions can cover everything from technique to reading music, from improvisation to ear training. You have the opportunity to learn how to play your favorite styles of music: jazz, classical, rock, pop, country, and others.

    Performance Opportunities

We know that performing causes musicians to grow and gives an outlet to share what they have been practicing and working on. From nursing homes and retirement centers to more formal recitals, our students have the opportunity to perform in a variety of settings.

Our Commitment to Our Students
