St. Andrew Academy of Music opened its doors on March 1, 1999. The goal of the music academy is to offer musical instruction to students in the Santa Maria Valley. As we celebrate our 16th year, we're still excited about making music in our community.
We believe that every person is born with musical ability. Our teachers have years of instructional and performance experience. Whether you are starting out at age four or age ninety-nine, a beginner or a seasoned musician, we are dedicated to providing competent musical instruction in music theory, sight reading, ear training, improvisation, and solo performance. All are part of a custom- tailored lesson for each and every student.
We offer private lessons, which provide a more individualized approach. This offers a great opportunity to get the personal attention that is so beneficial to musical growth. Lessons for beginners are 30 minutes in length; lessons available to advanced students are 45 to 60 minutes.
Lessons are offered after school. Each class consists of instruction on the instrument of choice, reading musical notes, music theory and history. Our teachers will work with you to develop a program that helps you in achieving your musical goals.
