Hi, my name is Evan and I am 10 years old.  I have been playing piano since 2015!  I love playing piano.  My teacher is such a great music teacher.  She is so caring and nice to me.  It is hard to find a great musical program so close to my house, especially since my public school is no longer doing musical activities. I have met so many friends at the recitals!  Three of my neighbors do the musical program too.  One is 10 and plays guitar another one does the music funtime classes and is 3 years old and one is a retired adult taking piano lessons.  They started because I told them that our community center has a musical program!  I'm just so glad that there is a musical program at the community center because I am a triplet and I'm the middle child and I don't really have an interest in sports like my two brothers do.

Evan; Piano Student since 2015

We're so enjoying our lessons! Our teacher is not only knowledgeable but warm and encouraging as well. We're grateful!

Kathleen; Adult Violin Student and Parent of Violin Student

Our kids (9 year old and 5 year old) started the music lessons with North Phoenix Academy of Music last school year.  Their teacher has been doing a wonderful job in bringing our kids up to speed on theory and piano classes. They are really enjoying their classes and are always waiting for class. They have made a tremendous progress over the last year and we are really happy with the program.  This is the only class or activity that we attend at Sonoran Foothills Community Center and we would love to continue the same moving forward.

Smitha; Parent of 2 Piano Students

We recently moved and won’t be able to continue our music lessons.  Thanks a ton to our teacher for keeping up with all the tantrums and tough times we gave her (LOL).  We feel so lucky that we got to learn from her and will always cherish those moments and remember her teachings! We will continue recommending North Phoenix Academy of Music and we ourselves will always remember. Thanks!

I really cannot imagine my daughter getting a better Music Education than what she has received at North Phoenix Academy of Music!

Her teacher insists on good basics before advancing in the lessons and she also has instilled a great deal of discipline.  She is firm, but always supportive,  positive and always smiling.  She is a high energy individual and very structured and efficient during the lesson time.

Thanks for your work in music education and for bringing quality music lessons to the North Valley!

I just wanted you to know how glad I am that we tried the online class with you during Covid19 and quarantine 2020.

After the very first class I was so happy I didn’t give up, it would be a big mistake on my part.  Your interaction with Alex was great! He was soooo happy to see you, the information and material was given to him with great detail and the interaction in general was fabulous!  Thanks for the wonderful person you are, thanks for all the love you put into those classes, and thank you for making my kiddo an awesome violin player.

Something to soothe their souls, enhance their confidence, and make them feel that they can still be good at something. That there is HOPE! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
