800 Strong!

Guitarist and 800TH STUDENT, Alicia, took a minute before her first lesson to pose for a picture. She went home with a yummy treat from Nothing Bundt Cakes, an Academy Swag bag, and an excitement for lessons!


We are extremely grateful to all of our students and parents who have trusted us with their music education, and to our wonderful instructors who go out of their way to make learning fun! The love and support of the community has been influential in helping us grow and provide an exceptional music lesson experience to every student. We can't say thank you enough!

 

Valentines fun and Practice Champ winners!

Students showed their love for lessons this month in many different ways! Some wrote letters to their teacher, some dressed up, and others took part in our Valentine's Day Practice Challenge!

Congratulations to all of our Valentine's Day Practice Champs who worked hard to successfully practiced 12 days in a row between February 1st and 14th.

A special congrats goes out to the winner of our Valentine's drawing, Ashton and runner-up, Aisulu! Aisulu recieved a mini Valentine's Squishmallow while Ashton went home with a giant Valentine's Squishmallow and Valentine's basket.

March Madness with a Mission!

We are excited to announce that the Academy of Music will be partnering with YWCA West Central Michigan to collect donations at both our Grand Rapids and Jenison locations for the entire month of March!

The YWCA looks to eliminate racism and empower women and girls in the Grand Rapids area by education, public policy, and by providing services for victims of domestic and child abuse.

But there's a twist! We’ll be dividing up donations by instruments. The group who collects the most donations will be crowned our March Madness Battle of the Instruments winner, and will be awarded the Academy of Music MVP trophy....and bragging rights!

Plus, when you donate you’ll be able to spin our prize wheel as a thank you for helping support survivors and prevent further abuse.

For more information, please reach out to the office team. You can view YWCA's wishlist here.
