Foothills Music Academy - Why Us?

With so many places to learn music, why choose Foothills Music Academy?

We not only teach instrument proficiency in our private lesson sessions,  we also facilitate musical exploration and performance.

Our students do not just go into a "room" down a hall, but get to know each other.  And, should they choose, take advantage of the opportunities to collaborate with one another.

Examples:
1) All students at FMA learn theory and composition.  An aspiring composer is given the opportunity to hear his/her music come to life via our youth orchestra that meets weekly.  He/She gets to learn to conduct as well as work with musicians - we have had conductors as young as 8!

2) A vocalist is always in need of an accompanist, and accompanying is a lost art.  We provide our piano students the opportunity to learn a piece and coordinate with any of our students, not just vocal.

3) Piano/Vocal/Strings/Drum jam session evenings. Putting the chord progression and composing theory to work in a practical, fun environment. - Some of the music is wild!

4) Youth Orchestra that encourages camaraderie while building technical skills. We have several performances a year, thus giving us goals to work towards.


We are always evolving as our students bring us new and creative ideas of how they would like to learn music...Garage Band? Musicals with our own Musical Pit Orchestra? Youth Choir? Just a few suggestions that will be coming...

Musical Offerings:
Piano
Voice,
Theater,
