Welcome To Top Note Music Academy!

Private Lessons:

Top Note Music Academy offers Private Lessons in piano, guitar, drums, violin, sax, trumpet, and voice to students ages 5 to adults! Take structured, weekly lessons from college educated musicians! We work around your schedule and teach styles ranging from classical, rock, pop, and more!

Jr. Rockband:

We also have our Jr. Rockband class where kids are put together to form their own rock band. They develop technique on their instruments, learn about being part of a team, get to jam our their favorite songs and record live in the studio!

Recording Studio:

Speaking of studio, Top Note Music Academy now has a professional Recording Studio right inside the school! You can book a recording session with DJ Sammy, lay down multiple tracks, and record your very own CD or mp3 with our state-of-the-art-equipment!

Our Philosophy:

Our philosophy has always been to teach music to children on a multi-instrumental level, allowing our students to thrive musically on various instruments while building their confidence. Our talented teachers creatively inspire all students to choose the instrument(s) they would really like to learn. Our goal is to educate our community of children and adults with the gift of music.
