About New England Music Academy

Joyful Connections... Our highest priority is playful learning and joyful music exploration.  Our nurturing teachers artfully craft sensory rich lessons with care and connect with each child at their level. 

Foundational Beginnings...We make learning to read music feel easy so students can succeed no matter which instrument they may study.   We believe a solid foundation in music theory is essential to creative independence for all students. 

Empowered Confidence...Students become curators of their own musical journey.  Our teachers are there to help musicians become fluent readers and to help them develop their own individual style.  

"The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say...the children are working as if I did not exist."  ~Maria Montessori
