Praise for Cappella Music Academy

  • Brittany is an amazing teacher! She’s been teaching for 14 years and I’ve watched many of her students progress and become wonderful pianists. Brittany has also performed in many venues including The Museum of Flight, Barnes and Noble, and many churches for a variety of occasions.

    Chris B.

  • I was so impressed by the professional way Cappella Performing Arts Academy put together their piano recital this last week! Additionally, each student was well prepared and did such a nice job. Truly inspiring performance!

    Amy W.

  • As a parent, I am thrilled with the experience my daughter has had learning piano over the last 3 years. She is happy and excited to attend her lessons because the instructor makes the lessons challenging, meaningful, interesting, and fun. I am amazing at how much she has learned and how much support she has had. We couldn’t be happier with our choice of piano.

    Heidi K.

  • We absolutely love our guitar teacher! She really listens to what my daughter would like to learn and what style. She encourages her and isn’t pushy. We are so happy we found Cappella!

    Brooke C.

  • Great staff and an awesome instructor. I’m getting better every week. I can’t wait to start playing Phantom of the Opera!

    Tim V.

  • Cappella Music Academy is *the* place to learn music in the Bonney Lake area. The wide variety of instrument-specific offerings, group sessions, great space, excellent rates, and friendly staff make it an easy choice for music instruction.

    Tom W.

  • Our daughter is 9 years old and has been interested in playing the piano for many years. We drove by in the fall and noticed this place opened recently and were accepting students. She was really excited to start! A bonus is they are really close to where I live! She’s been seeing Amy, really likes her and is picking up things rather quickly. Amy is kind, patient, encouraging and a beautifully talented pianist who we had the pleasure of hearing at the winter recital. The staff is welcoming and professional. We really do feel blessed to have found such a wonderful environment for her to learn in. I highly recommend [Cappella Music Academy] for piano.

    Nicol W.

  • We are so impressed with Cappella Music Academy. Everyone is extremely friendly, knowledgeable and exceptional at their craft. Everything about the academy is first-class, from the amazing bi-yearly musical performances to the attendance incentive trophies. Our two daughters have been taking piano lessons at Cappella since they opened their doors. They started with Ms. Bennett, before she opened Cappella, and have since moved to the academy. Now they both take piano from Ms. Weller, who they adore. Our youngest recently started taking drum lessons with Ms. Heather and our oldest is hoping to take guitar in the near future. We appreciate that our girls can grow in their musical talents at Cappella.

    Matthew B.

  • We signed our son up for drum lessons and have been pleased with the service, instruction and professionalism that Cappella has shown. They teach not only the fundamentals but also music theory which I believe is important. I strongly encourage any one who is interested in learning a instrument or improving the skill you already have to try Cappella Academy.

    Tyson T.

  • My daughter is enrolled in Beginning Choir at Cappella Music Academy. She is 6 and this is her first formal instruction. She absolutely loves it! She gushes about the class for the rest of the day and always “counts sleeps” until she can go again. She is able to tell me clearly what she has learned which tells me her music teacher is great at communicating with someone in her age group and teaching to that skill level. We would absolutely recommend Cappella and their amazing, professional staff to anyone. We look forward to taking more classes in the future!

    Rose F.

  • Cappella Music Academy is awesome. The staff is absolutely amazing, extremely professional and very knowledgable. If anyone is wanting professional lessons to look no further!

    Austin J.

  • We had been looking for guitar lessons for my daughter for quite some time and now that Cappella’s has opened we are so happy to have her enrolled! It’s a convenient location, redone inside and she has a one-on-one class each week. She loves her teacher and is excited to learn. Great space and friendly staff.

    Lori F.

  • Cappella is one of the few places we were able to find Drum lessons available for our son. The process from the moment you call to your lessons is spectacular. Their service and instructors are very knowledgeable and they truly strive to make sure you are welcomed and successful in your learning. I highly recommend Cappella Academy for any instruction at any age!

  • Our daughter started private piano lessons with Miss Brittany when she was four years old. It has been a year and we are so impressed at how much she has learn and grown! Not only is Brittany an amazing teacher, but she teaches with patience, kindness, and love. She has kept our daughter engaged and is very age-appropriate with her teaching and technique – our daughter loves going to piano! Thanks Brittany for all that you do.
