What parents are saying:
Marion Music Academy has been a wonderful experience for our family. All five of my children take music lessons during the same half hour and they are taught by highly qualified teachers.
-- Melissa H.
The Marion Music Academy has been a wonderful place for my daughter to learn piano. She has been attending lessons at the Marion Music Academy for the past 4 years; since she was almost 5. Her instructor has always been able to teach the music for my daughter’s level of understanding and abilities. My daughter enjoys her lessons and really enjoys the incentive program Marion Music Academy has to encourage practicing. As a parent, the level of communication between the school and parents has been outstanding. The teachers want to talk to parents weekly to go over the student’s progress. Any schedule changes, while irregular, are communicated through phone calls. I have also enjoyed the flexibility of the summer program! When my son decided to try drums, I had a hard time waiting for the Academy to expand its program to drum lessons. After my experience with the Academy, I knew any lessons my son took there would be of high quality! -- Aimee Williams
