“My daughter Anabel was so lucky to start with Glee Music Academy. She is teaching her how to use her voice without harming it. My daughter has been taking vocal lessons for two years with another teacher and she hasn’t had any major results like she had in a few months. Thank you Glee Music Academy!”
“The thing I like most about Glee is the positive atmosphere. I have older children in dance and sometimes the atmosphere is so competitive between the kids. It is so nice to be involved in a program that teaches and promotes the kids to support one another. Huge thumbs up from our family!”
“GOOD NEWS! I was accepted to both Musical Theatre and Acting conservatories at OCSA! I want to thank you for all of your help, support, kindness and time. I truly couldn’t have done it without all your hard work. THANK YOU SO MUCH!”

Starting age will largely depend on the student, some may need to wait longer than others depending on factors such as fine motor skills, attention span and overall interest in music.

We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song.
