Let's face it, parents understand one another. While all kids, teens, and adult learners are unique, one thing binds us: the love for our family. We take this to heart in all of our decisions and how we run our school. Since 2006 we have been a school run by parents. This has helped us visualize what it is other parents truly want for their children as well as what adult students are after. Our lives have been a pursuit of perfecting this vision.  Put simply, we only hire teachers that we would want to teach our own children and adult friends.And like you've read before above, laughter and a good sense of humor are a must!

Meet the Founder

Bill Engel is the original Founder of Parker Music Academy. In 2007, Bill joined two lifelong passions of music and teaching together, and created Parker Music Academy. Bill's B.A. in Music Education from Arizona State University gave him a firm foundation. He dedicated his life to spreading the joy of music. Bill was an avid traveler and has been to 49 out of the 50 United States, and has traveled the world with his family. He loved to scuba dive, and was fascinated with the history of the Egyptian Pharaohs.  

"I love not just seeing students grow and accomplish things that they never thought possible, but how all of our students and teachers are one giant family from over 40 different schools."

Stephan is also the owner and director of Littleton School of Music, which he founded in 2006. Mr. Hume also carries forward the torch lit by Bill Engel, the orginal founder at Parker Music Academy. He believes it is essential to find fun, patient teachers and matches them with students of all backgrounds who want to give music a try.

It has become a second family of mine with all of the teachers and students we get to work with every day. I've been a student and a teacher here for around 7 years in total so believe me when I say that this is the place to learn and appreciate music! Bill and the teachers not only challenge you, but they are with you and will take care of you with open arms! I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to become a wonderful singer and creating wonderful friendships along the way! You definitely won't be disappointed!"
