About New England Music Academy

We understand it can be challenging for parents to find quality music lessons that sets their child up for success in music and life.  We believe you deserve engaging lessons kids love and we're here to help you figure it all out.  


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

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

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

Our mission is to make music last a lifetime by developing musical independence, making learning music feel fun and easy, and by honoring each student's musical journey whether it's for personal enjoyment or to prepare an audition piece.

EMPOWERED:  Your child will profoundly understand that they get better at what they work at.  They'll know that practice makes progress in their music journey.
