15 Reasons You Should Choose Knoxville Academy of Music
1. Music Lessons Are Number One
Do you want to learn at a music school where music lessons are the most important thing? Our academy is a school of music first. We are not a piano store, dance studio, or an instrument retailer that has lessons as a side business. At Knoxville Academy of Music, providing you with a great music learning experience is our #1 priority.
2. Well Established Music School
Knoxville Academy of Music is a division of Allied Music Instructors, which was established in 2004, and became an LLC in 2013. We teach hundreds of lessons each week to students like you!
3. Start When You Want
Your lessons can begin whenever you are ready. Knoxville Academy of Music operates year-round with new students starting weekly.4. Many Instruments & Lesson Times
You and your family can take guitar, piano, voice, drums, bass, violin, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, ensemble programs, and more! Knoxville Academy of Music has many instructors, giving you more options for scheduling and musical styles. For your convenience, we are open 7 days per week.
5. No Long-Term Contract
Lessons are on-going and weekly (48 lessons/year schedule), and tuition is paid monthly. Take lessons as long as you like. To withdraw from lessons just give Knoxville Academy of Music a withdrawal notice by the 15th day of your final month.
6. Private Music Lessons
One on one private music lessons are a time honored tradition, and they offer many advantages for you. They provide great flexibility, are easy to schedule, and are available in a wide variety of instruments. They can also provide for an individualized course of study to allow you to advance at your own pace.
7. Trophies, Certificates, and Award Wristbands to Celebrate Achievement
We are the only music school in Knoxville that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies, AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder System®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder is our unique method of music education that is not available anywhere else in Knoxville, TN. More importantly, when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins. You can only get the Musical Ladder here.
8. Recital Opportunities
Your participation in recitals is optional. However, they are a great way for you to grow your talent. Your instructor will help you or your child prepare for any recital you sign up for. Knoxville Academy of Music will provide you at least two free recital opportunities each year. The regular recitals are in front of a safe and encouraging audience full of students’ friends and family members.
9. Ensemble Programs
Knoxville Academy of Music features a youth guitar group for advancing guitarists under 18 years of age. Knoxville Academy of Music also periodically offers other fun group programs. Special classes & programs are announced in our monthly newsletters.
