Music Lessons

We offer comprehensive private music lessons that are instructed within a curriculum that supports structure, balance and flexibility for our students. Instructional lessons and content are delivered through a curriculum which allows for each instructor to tailor instructional methods towards each student's abilities, individual musical interests and goals.

Our music instructors travel to the student's home and/or teach at our East Brunswick, NJ school. Our focus is always on comprehensive music instruction and a well-rounded music education for each student.

We offer audition, evaluation and competition preparation during the regular weekly instructional lessons. Students are encouraged to inform their instructor of upcoming auditions, competitions, performances and recitals. Students of Music Notes Academy have been accepted into Jazz Bands, Marching Bands, Regions Band, All-State Bands and college as music majors.

Customer Testimonials

Hi Brandon: I've been meaning to email you to let you know how happy we are with Sean. Kids are making great progress and he is a breathe of fresh air. so good --thank you for letting us have him!!"

We really like the new Chris. I guess it was a cloud with a silver lining because Spencer seems to connect better with him. I think he is a little more youthful and therefore more relatable to a thirteen year-old. Spencer said he gives a little less homework between sessions and therefore Spencer can learn to play a couple of songs really well instead of learning four songs just so-so... But longer term I would say the new Chris is better so as not to burn out the child who has an interest in learning, but it is not their only activity.

Thanks Jenna for getting back to me. We are planning to go for some vacations this summer, so we will take a break from piano lessons. But appreciate your efforts. Music Notes Academy is a great learning place and Ria loves taking lessons with your school! Keep up the good work!
