What makes us the best music school in the area?
All of our teachers hold a degree in music from an accredited 4-year University. They all participate in varying performances throughout each year not only here in the state, but nationally and internationally as well. Their availability and their personalities come in a broad scope and better allow Avanti Music Academy to suit each student based on their needs. We focus on private, one-on-one lesson environments to ensure maximum growth and retention through a conservatory level approach but we also offer semi-private. We take pride in our ability and willingness to teach any and all styles of music. We work hard to bring many unique local, national, and international performance opportunities and programs to our student body
Drive in Concerts
These concerts are designed to showcase and further develop the more experienced, intermediate/advanced students’ performing abilities in an open and inviting venue, where families and friends are highly encouraged. Students, in cooperation with their teachers, make the determination on what they play and are backed by professional musicians on live instruments (in most cases). These performances take place directly in front of Avanti after other businesses around us have closed for the evening!
On the second Saturday evening of each month, Avanti is transformed into a small, laid-back venue for students to come and play or sing anything they wish! Teachers and other students will join in for these performances and it is a great opportunity to collaborate with other intermediate/advanced musicians. ANY friends, families, and peers are always welcome! Food and drinks are served. This is a more relaxed setting for our students to become more comfortable with performing. The event is always free for Avanti students.
Performances and Masterclasses
Our Performance/Masterclass Program sets us apart and adds that extra educational experience that parents and students look forward to and love. These are put on once per semester for each instrument group. During the Masterclass, the students perform an excerpt from a piece they are currently working on for an audience of peers, parents, and instructors. This is a fantastic chance for them to see how the student is developing musically and also to get feedback from teachers the student doesn’t get an opportunity to work with otherwise. These focus on one instrument at a time, and sometimes feature Master guests!
Our commitment policy has set a strong foundation for our students. When they sign on to take lessons with us, they are signing on for the rewards and the challenges of learning music. Our teachers are invested in the success of their students and will do everything to support and encourage them through music’s sometimes difficult learning curve. Students will be given many opportunities to perform in Jam Sessions, local events, and a multi-tiered Recital Program that showcases the power of LIVE music, played by trained professionals with the students on the Main Theater Stage at Parker Performance Arts!!
