From Our Website

Crescendo Academy of Music provides private and group instruction for instrumental and vocal music to all who are interested. Through scholarships, an instrument loan program, and more, we make music accessible to everyone. Our music lessons and classes are taught by professional teaching artists and performers in Southwest Michigan who are dedicated to every students' musical growth and enjoyment. With recitals, performances, and more, Crescendo Academy of Music has events running year-round. We update our calendar every month with opportunities to see our live events, so everyone, including our students and their parents, can be active members of the music community.


Crescendo Academy of Music is the premier music school in Kalamazoo, offering private lessons, group lessons, theory classes, and more. Through effective, personalized instruction, Crescendo helps everyone, young and old, develop the musical skills they need, no matter the skill level. By providing accessibility to the world of music, we bring people together and help them achieve their musical goals.


Crescendo Academy of Music has several opportunities for group music classes available. If minimum enrollment is met for a class to be held, students will learn in a group setting for a variety of different musical interests. Developed by Laura Norris, the Mando for Kids curriculum was designed to introduce elementary school children to the mandolin as a classical instrument. A grant from the Classical Mandolin Society of America allows us to provide the instruments for this class. This class will provide students with the opportunity to review pieces they have learned in private lessons in an ensemble setting.


Whether it's performances, special music programs, or student recitals, there's always something going on at Crescendo Academy of Music. Our calendar stays up to date with all the latest events that we are involved in, so, if you're looking for an opportunity to see a performance or recital, check back frequently to see what upcoming events we have planned. If you have questions about any event and would like to learn more, reach out to us here.


All our music school students are encouraged to perform at public recitals. Crescendo provides an on-site accompanist for the performing students. Chamber groups, when performance ready, are encouraged to perform at functions throughout the community. Our performance ensembles have provided music for the Epic Center, Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, Kalamazoo Public Schools, Kalamazoo Public Library, Portage Public Library, Art Hop, charity events and in many churches, assisted living, and nursing homes in the area.
