Why Charlotte Academy of Music?

Effective music study is not just a matter of having a qualified teacher, but also includes an environment that is favorable to learning and music lessons specifically. Lessons in the student or teacher’s home are prone to many distractions and can interrupt the flow of the lesson and student concentration. In a school setting, students are focused solely on the music lesson itself. Being part of a musical community is also highly motivating!

Students in a music school, such as Charlotte Academy of Music, have opportunities to participate in ensembles, master classes and many performances. In short, students who study at a music school receive a more well-rounded music education experience.
