Programs of Study

The Programs of Study at our All-Yamaha School 2,500 sq. ft. facility offer a combination of private and group instructions. Students of all ages and abilities receive a well-rounded music education. Prospective students are placed in the Program of Study appropriate for them after an initial free interview with the Academy’s founder and Executive Director Dr. Judith Jain.

In addition to the introduction to Classical music, students may also be exposed to Jazz, Hymns, Bollywood, and other types of repertoire. Students who qualify may enroll in the Music Development Program; an internationally recognized examination program with graded levels, which covers all aspects of music learning.
