Winter "Songsong" Recital Photos Are Here! 

The Winter “Snowsong” Recital was an amazing recital ending our 2023 year and we have had requests to do it all again from the Foothills Mall staff and many who attended. We are so excited to bring you photos from the recital.  The photos were taken by Farrah of Farrahs Photography and they did an amazing job for us as always! You can view the photo gallery here.

We are looking at our next recital performance at the beginning of summer so stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
Students are already signing up for our next recital performance and if any of our students haven't done so yet, they can sign up at the academy's front desk. We are also looking for volunteers as they make everything run so smoothly.

It was an amazing afternoon that everyone raved about as it was standing-room only and we are looking to do that again!  

2024 will bring a lot of great performance opportunities and we can't wait for you to see our students in action! 

New 2023 Student Album Out NOW! 

The new 2023 student album “Dreams” is now available for purchase.  We went with the DREAM theme this year where each participant had to come up with a song with the words Dream, Dreams, Dreaming, etc in it and they all came through brilliantly!  You will be amazed at how well these students have progressed this year and we are certainly very proud of them all.  We know you will enjoy this album as much as they have in creating it!  All proceeds from the sale of this album go to the academy to help fund other activities for our students throughout the year. Please consider purchasing it to help further support our music programs and events.
