I love how the instructors are genuinely interested in my children as people as well as musicians. They see each child as an individual and find the best ways to connect with them. Additionally, I really appreciate how my girls are challenged and encouraged to move out of their comfort zones. Going to HAA isn’t just about learning to play music, it’s also about building confidence and learning more about their amazing potential!

I signed my boys (ages 8 and 9) up for guitar lessons here after seeing an ad in my Facebook newsfeed. I really had nothing to go on, so I had no idea how good it would be. They have lessons with Adam, who is fantastic. I just love the way he communicates with them. He's super professional and nice and interested--just a wonderful teacher. Recently I signed one of my boys up for an acting class, and that's also going great. It's a lovely place with really nice staff and a comfortable facility. I haven't been to any of the recitals or anything yet, but so far, extremely pleased with our experience here.

Customer Testimonials

Miss Jenn is wonderful and engaging!! My son really enjoys it!!

Extremely professional instructors and administrative staff.

My son left class saying he cannot wait to go back!!

My Granddaughter has been taking voice lessons with Ms. Abagail. We are so pleased with how well she has been doing. Ms. Abagail is wonderful and we love the Academy.

My children have been attending the HAA since kindergarten. My older child is in high school now. You can imagine why we have been a HAA family for ten years years. The staff is always helpful in helping resolving scheduling conflicts to finding the right match for instructor. My children have changed their instruments of choice but we have stuck with HAA for school of choice!

Supportive, enthusiastic, motivated, dedicated, compassionate, talented; these are just some of the ways I can describe the staff and teachers at HAA. Both of my daughters have had the privilege of being a part of this wonderful community for several years. I'm thankful we have such a wonderful resource in our community. We look forward to staying here for a long time!

Both my children attend HAA and are thriving in their pursued talents. All the instructors that we have encountered through the past few years have been wonderful. The instructors hold incredible standards in regards to their own level of expertise and have a wonderful way of guiding their students. My oldest daughter has made wonderful progress working with Taylor for vocals and my youngest has made tremendous strides with her drumming skills since working with Joel.

My daughter has attended HAA for several years now in piano and two different singing groups. She loves True Voice Project with Adam! This group provides a wonderful opportunity for the kids to develop skills selecting, arranging, and performing music under his energetic guidance.

My son has been taking drum lessons at HAA for the past two years, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the results. The drum instructor, Adam Kishbauch, creates and inviting and encouraging atmosphere that really brings out the best in his students.

The entire staff at HAA is fantastic. They are always very accommodating when we have schedule changes, and always put the needs of the student first.

Highly, highly recommended!

Wonderful music program with fantastic teachers. We've been very happy with Musikgarten and drum lessons! The staff is very friendly. The jam sessions are awesome and we are always impressed watching all the students at recitals! We love HAA!
