Music Lessons

Santa Teresa Academy of Music and Dance offers the following music lessons in the following instruments: piano, guitar, voice, violin, cello, ukulele and viola. .

Our lessons are offered year round. Learning a musical instrument is an ongoing process that requires regular and continuous practice to maintain technique. We have found that lengthy breaks in instruction greatly slow down a student's progress and often lead to frustration and loss of interest. By providing instruction without seasonal breaks, our students show consistent and steady progress on their instrument.

Dance Classes

Santa Teresa Academy of Music and Dance offers dance classes in the following styles: ballet, jazz, hip hop, and tap. In addition, we provide introduction to dance classes for preschoolers and kindergarteners as well as Parent and Tot classes for 2-3 year olds.

I really like the staffs there and the instructors. It is very welcoming and warm feeling. You can really tell that the faculty is extremely passionate about their academy. It's a huge place, which I also really liked. Please pay them a visit, you can not go wrong with this place!

My daughter has been to four different dance studios and this is by far the best! Nice, clean studio with a wonderful staff and top-notch instruction!

If you've ever thought about taking ballroom dance class lessons this is the place to be. Instructor Chuck Braswell, makes learning fun! His sense of humor helps to take the possible anxiety out of learning something new. He is a dedicated, has great patience and is a caring instructor who makes learning something new fun and easy! The owner, Shirley Valero, is friendly and welcoming & genuinely cares whether or not we have a good time. I really do like this studio!!
