Friendly, Knowledgeable, Social Teachers

We at Academics and Music value the notion that teachers and staff of an educational community determine the success of our students. We pride ourselves on four core values.

Building Confidence

We believe that confidence leads to success. Our teachers help students master a subject area and learn an instrument. In return, the student is more inclined to participate and be engaged in school.

Knowledgeable and Friendly Teachers

We not only hire teachers with impressive credentials but teachers who have innate talents and skills and are experts at engaging your child to their fullest potential. Our teachers are friendly, social, and most of all committed to you and your child success.

Creating a Community

We believe in open communication between the school, home, and most importantly your child. Our teachers take the time to introduce themselves to the school and child’s teacher. They open up a line of communication that allows for the classroom teacher to recommend specific skills that your child can be working on to reinforce or enrich at home. All of our teachers work on a one-on-one level with your child but we listen to everyone’s concerns so that we may personalize the instruction in a manner that creates a learning community.

Challenging Students with a New Skill

We offer parents the opportunity for children to master a subject area and learn a new instrument at the same time. We believe this can improve cognition, communication, literacy, social and emotional development, functional abilities, and an overall better physical well-being. We pride ourselves in hiring teachers who are capable of teaching Academics and Music.
