Our mission is to serve all members of the community that have a desire to play music, regardless of their age, circumstances or ability. Our doors are open to all based on the following values:

I had been looking locally for a guitar teacher. The price was right but they were 30 minutes away and I just didn’t want to spend that much time driving. That’s when my wife mentioned the Garrett Music Academy’s virtual lessons. So I signed up and it’s been great working with Alex ever since. He is very knowledgeable and I’m finally learning how to play guitar. Krista the owner is great too. Best of all, no drive time! We do it all over Zoom.   Thanks Garrett!

We pay attention to the details related to each individual.  Each private lesson is tailored for the specific student.  Each person has a set of goals, objectives, and degrees of intrinsic motivation that can vary depending on age and ability.  

Our philosophy is that music is for everyone and the programs we offer reflect that vision.  We have developed classes for young children, private music lessons for school band and orchestra students. Programs for cognitive and developmental disabilities and approaches for our more mature students looking to maintain memory, mobility and stimulate other areas of brain function.
