Our Approach to Music Education
We sat down to talk with several of Portland's favorite news stations and morning shows. Learn more about who we are, our approach, and what makes us unique as we discuss music education with our friends in the media.
Lessons We Offer
Every student is different, so music lessons are personalized to each student. We focus on teaching the fundamentals and proper technique, but we also find the music you want to play. Like popular favorites from movies and video games, as well as versions of your favorite songs!
“Our son really loved going to music lessons here, he wasn’t so great to committing to practicing at home, but we kept on going and we’re a little over a year in now and he’s doing great!”
All of our locations have convenient hours throughout the week.
Ages We Teach
At the Arts Academy we are excited to teach all ages of aspiring musicians. We typically start teaching children as young as five and our most important goal is aligning on our student’s interests and priorities while teaching. We believe learning an instrument should be fun and rewarding, not frustrating and discouraging!
Our teachers are trained in teaching even the youngest children. Start their musical journey early and set them up for a lifetime of success!
Whether your teen is a beginner or advanced, we can help hone and refine their musical skills. After school and weekend lessons available!
What makes the Arts Academy so remarkable?
We really believe that learning music should be FUN. And we’ve developed the best music facility in Oregon to set you or your child up for success.
