Are we the right music school for you?

Fresno Music Academy & Arts is the largest independent music school in Fresno and the immediate Central San Joaquin valley. We give nearly 325 plus music lessons every week.  We are conveniently located in the heart of Fresno's historic cultural center, the Tower District and serve music students from Fresno, Clovis, Sanger, Reedley, Madera and other surrounding communities who visit our studio every week. Others that live a little further away from the immediate area understand that a little extra driving time is well worth the quality of music instruction they receive from our highly qualified music teachers. We even have students that drive in from as far as Visalia and Mariposa to take lessons with us.

While you are here researching the best music school for you, please consider the benefits of becoming a student and find out why we are your best choice for music lessons.

 15 Reasons You Should Choose Fresno Music Academy & Arts

1. Music Lessons Are Number One
Do you want to learn at a Fresno Music Academy where music lessons are the most important thing? We are not a piano store or dance studio that also has music lessons, or an instrument retailer that has lessons in tiny little rooms with little or no accountability from the instructors. At Fresno Music Academy, providing you with a great music learning experience is our #1 priority.

2. Well Established Fresno Music School
Fresno Music Academy was established in 2016, formerly known since 1998 as The Voice Shop Music Academy. We teach hundreds of lessons each week to students like you!

3. Start When You Want
Your lessons can begin whenever you are ready. Fresno Music Academy operates year-round with new students starting weekly.

4. Many Instruments & Lesson Times
You and your family can take guitar, piano, voice, drums, bass, violin, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, accordion, ensemble programs, and more! Fresno Music Academy has many instructors, giving you more options for scheduling and musical styles. For your convenience, we are open 6 days per week.


5.  Top Rated Private Music Academy
Fresno Academy of Music & Arts is the winner of: the 2017 and 2018 Readers Choice Award from California Parent Magazine for the Best Place For Music Lessons in the Fresno county area.

6. No Long-Term Contract
Lessons are on-going and weekly (47 lessons/year schedule), and tuition is paid monthly. Take lessons as long as you like. To withdraw from lessons just give Fresno Music Academy a withdrawal notice by the 15th day of your final month.

7. Private Music Lessons
One on one private music lessons are a time honored tradition, and they offer many advantages for you. They provide great flexibility, are easy to schedule, and are available in a wide variety of instruments. They can also provide for an individualized course of study to allow you to advance at your own pace.

8. Multiple family members can take lessons in ONE location.  Our busy families with multiple kids and hectic schedules enjoy the convenience of having their children taking different lessons at the same time in one location.

9. Musical Ladder System - Trophies, Certificates, & Award Wristbands to Celebrate Achievement
We are the only music school in Fresno that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies, AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder System®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder is our unique method of music education that is not available anywhere else in Fresno, CA. More importantly, when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins. You can only get the Musical Ladder here.

10. Special Programs For Children
Your child can enroll in Fresno Music Academy’s award winning Music Fun Time program. This program is specifically designed for kids starting at 18 months through 6 & 7 years of age. The Music Fun Time program is the only childhood music education program of its kind in Fresno! Our experienced teachers conduct weekly classes with these young children, teaching them music theory, instrumentation, rhythm and more.  Based on extensive studies at the John Hopkins institute, children, as early as 18 months can learn music in much the same way as they learn language, sounds, shapes and so much more. A child starting with a musical background will walk away with advantages not available to those who don't. Additionally, many of our instructors have other special training in child development related to music education. Call us at 559-222-7464 and we will help you get your child in the right music program.


11. Recital Opportunities
Your participation in recitals is optional. However, they are a great way for you to grow your talent and confidence. Your instructor will help you or your child prepare for any recital you sign up for. Fresno Music Academy will provide you at least three recital opportunities each year. The regular recitals are in front of a safe and encouraging audience full of students’ friends and family members. See when our next showcase is!

12.Additional Programs
Fresno Music Academy is always offering opportunities either for musicians to become better at what they do or for lovers of music and the arts to attend performances. From our summer camps for children, to our summer camp for adults (Front A Band Fantasy Camp), to acting workshops for young adults, plays, concerts and more, we are always focused on performance and building confidence and ability through our many programs. Special classes& programs are announced in our monthly newsletters.

13. Year Round Lessons
