Happy New Year and welcome to both returning and new students in the Southwestern Music Academy!  We are proud of the skilled and caring guidance of our 27 teachers as well as the progress our students make in their quest for excellence!                                             

Offering Kindermusik classes for children 0-7 years, and private and group instruction for ages 5-adult in piano, strings, voice, organ, flute, and guitar, our Regular Academy lessons will begin the week of January 16th and beginning Intro lessons the week of January 30th.

We have just completed an exciting fall semester filled with many fun and engaging activities including our “Creative Animal Concert,” new “Praise and Worship Concert,” state theory test, and the “Keyboards at Christmas” concert featuring 19 grand piano Steinways on stage - all of the many programs we offer can be seen in detail in the “Events” pages.  This coming spring it will be time to prepare for our Music Development Program assessments (formerly Carnegie Hall Achievement Program).  As a Founding School of the Music Development Program we hope you will encourage your students to participate in this excellent national program.  It will spur them on towards building a solid comprehensive musical foundation which will provide a lifetime of enjoyment!  Please speak with your private teacher about signing up this spring!  Also, this year in April our Academy will host the Fort Worth Music Teachers Solo Contest which will now be open to piano, string, and voice students.  We certainly want to take advantage of this great opportunity and goal for our students as it will spur them on to excellence!

Please remember that returning students NEED NOT REREGISTER for the spring semester unless you are CHANGING YOUR LESSON LENGTH or GRADUATING from Intro lessons to the Regular Academy!!  As always you may pay for tuition either by check or money order (no cash!) via the lockbox outside C-101 or online using Paypal.

Have a rich and fruitful spring of music study as you pursue both fun and excellence in your music making!!
