Musical Ladder System

Music Lessons in Knoxville TN for Guitar, Piano, Voice, Drums & More

Are you ready to climb the Musical Ladder System ® to success?


Here at Knoxville Academy of Music, we’re always looking for ways we can improve our lesson experience and give our students more. That’s why we’re helping to inspire local music students to achieve more by being the very first in East Tennessee to license the Musical Ladder System ®, a proven system that helps students get excited about music while helping to keep parents ‘informed’ as to how they are doing.

Musical Ladder System | Knoxville TN | Farragut TN

This music teaching system is being used by music schools across the US and Canada to inspire music students to practice more and enhance their love for music. Similar to karate belt tests, every 90 days or so students have a test with their private music instructor. Once they pass, they receive really cool color wristbands with the name of the level they passed. They also get a certificate of achievement, and at certain levels students will also get a personalized trophy with their name on it.

Knoxville students have fun with Musical Ladder

Knoxville Academy of Music is the only music school in East Tennessee that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies, AND certificates for passing musical testswith the Musical Ladder System®. Do other area schools offer trophies and certificates? Maybe 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. More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins!

“Since adopting the Musical Ladder System ®, we’ve seen a huge increase in motivation and enthusiasm from each and every one of our students. As soon as they see our wristband display their eyes just light right up, and they are practicing and accomplishing more than ever before in order to reach their next levels and get their wristbands! 
Our Instructors have noticed the difference too, as each of their students now seem to be even more engaged in their weekly lessons.”
– Jeff Comas,
  Director, Knoxville Academy of Music

“I’m all for anything that encourages and rewards kids for all the hours they put into learning an instrument. After my son Ethan took his first test, he received multiple wristbands for the 18 months he had been taking drum lessons as well as a certificate of excellence.  The certificate is proudly hung on the wall above his drum set. He showed the wristbands to his family and friends and encouraged his younger sister to take her test on piano the next week.  I especially love the words listed on the wristbands. It brought up a long conservation about the meaning of each one and how it applied to Ethan.”

“Getting the wristbands gives me encouragement to move forward in learning how to play the drums. It also helps me to remember to practice more.”
