Inspiring CURIOSITY, CREATIVITY, and a LOVE of Learning.

Welcome to Grow Music Academy

Grow Music Academy's mission is to provide the highest quality music lessons to students at all ages and levels. We are a locally-owned, curriculum-based music school, offering private music lessons for beginners and advanced students. Our highly qualified faculty have years of experience in performance and music education. Lessons are currently available in piano and voice for every age and level of expertise as well as early childhood music and movement classes

We believe there should be joy in learning, and are creating a new standard in music education. Well known piano pedagogue Shinichi Suzuki said,
“Children learn to smile from their parents.”
 
 Our students are exposed to musical exploration in a fun and engaging atmosphere, and are mentored by professionals who take a personal interest in providing the best lessons in the area. A supportive parent is the key to fostering a positive and motivational learning environment at home that leads to weekly lesson progress. This comes from setting a practice routine from day 1 and giving consistent encouragement and support to help your child reach their fullest potential. As a team, we will work together to give your child the lifelong gift of playing piano. 

 The AIM Conservatory program for our most committed piano students, improves students' listening skills, develops positive ways to interact with others in creating a final musical product, improves rhythm skills, helps children in learning and practicing effective rehearsal techniques. In addition to weekly piano lessons, students in the conservatory attend bi-weekly theory classes culminating in theory and performance exams at Northwestern University each year.

Our Mission

bace image_edited_edited_edited.png

We believe that music enriches the lives of all people.

We believe that all students should have access to music education that includes introduction to a variety of genres and styles.

We believe students are driven by new challenges and encourage them to aim for what most inspires them. 

We value educated and healthy citizens and are committed to offering musical contributions that improve their quality of life.

We value the critical importance of practice for the development of musical technique, aural acuity, pedagogical skills, entrepreneurial endeavors and comprehensive musical knowledge in addition to the benefits of being committed to long term goals. 

We encourage, celebrate, and adopt the principles of inclusion, representation, openness and diversity not only in faculty, staff, and students, but in the music that is studied and performed.
