Our Academy is a community music school and New Jersey in-home music lesson provider. Lessons, available for young children, adolescents and adults, are tailored towards each student, either in the comfort and convenience of the student's home or at our school, within our
comprehensive curriculum.

Our unique curriculum includes music theory, practical musicianship skills, such as sight reading and ear training, proper instrument techniques, classical, jazz, contemporary and popular repertoire - students will learn songs they want learn as well. Students will receive comprehensive music instruction from our experienced and educated instructors. Our instructors combine structure and flexibility which offers a great balance in education.

Our students can perform with our ensembles and bands, such as percussion ensembles and Rock Bands. These groups perform in our annual Winter Concerts and Spring Student Recitals which commence in Madison, NJ in an auditorium on stage.

  • I would recommend this business

Our school district’s percussion music program was not challenging our daughter to her full potential. We finally found Music Notes Academy and she has made leaps and bounds in reading music and speed while playing the drums. The sessions with Brandon are enjoyable, while challenging, and the flexibility in virtual lessons during COVID has allowed our daughter to play much more over the past six months.

Music Notes Academy has instilled a love for music in our daughter, so much that she picked up saxophone lessons with Elana nine months ago and is already playing beautifully. I would not have thought her progress in music would be so great in just one year. The prices are reasonable and worth every penny. Brandon was honest in what we needed when purchasing instruments, equipment and even worked with us to make the right decisions.

We’ve been to Guitar Center, School of Rock and had private in-home lessons but Music Notes Academy is by far better quality instructors and music material. Five stars all the way!
