Celebrating a Year of Growth and Expansion

This past year has been a remarkable journey for Parker Music Academy, marked by growth, resilience, and the ongoing legacy of Bill Engel, the previous director whose vision and dedication laid the ground work for everything we have achieved.

We know he would be proud to see how much we've grown, where we are heading, and that we are now on the cusp of reaching 200 students! This milestone reflects the dedication and hard work of our teachers and staff; the families who have put their trust in us; and the ongoing inspiration music brings every day.We promised to keep growing, and that's exactly what we're doing.

To support this expansion, we've made significant improvements to our facility. With the addition of two new lesson rooms, we're able to accommodate our increasing student body. The new vibrant walls and carefully chosen furniture have transformed our school into an inviting and inspiring environment. We're also excited to welcome several new instructors to our team, each bringing fresh talent and passion. As we continue to grow, we're committed to providing the highest quality education and an environment where our students can thrive.

We look forward to sharing this journey with all of you and are looking forward to many exciting events coming up! We hope to see you at Photo Day, the Red Carpet Spring Recital, and Open Mic Night - all coming up soon! Thank you for being a part of our music school community.

Red Carpet Spring Recital

The Red Carpet Spring Recital is just around the corner! It's the perfect opportunity for our talented students to showcase their skills and hard work, and reflect on their growth. Whether you're a seasoned performer or it's your first time on stage, this event is a fantastic way to share your musical journey with family, friends, and fellow students. The date is fast approaching, and we've already seen an amazing response. But there are still a few open spots left— if you haven't signed up yet, now is the time!

Call, Text, Email, or talk with the front desk TODAY before spots are gone.

Preparing for a recital can be both exciting and nerve-wracking, so here are a few tips to help you get ready. First, practice consistently but in shorter sessions. This keeps you focused and avoids burnout.Second, consider recording yourself playing or singing to identify areas for improvement. This can be a great way to reflect and refine your technique, and build confidence! Finally, practice performing in front of a small audience—whether it's your family, friends, or even a group of stuffed animals. The more comfortable you are playing for others, the smoother your recital performance will be.

Remember, our recitals are not just about hitting the right notes - they're about expressing yourself, sharing your love of music, and connecting with the audience. So, don't stress about perfection. Instead, focus on enjoying the experience and sharing your passion with others.

Spots for the recital are filling up fast, and we would love for you to be part of this special event. If you're interested, be sure to sign up as soon as possible to secure your place. This is a great opportunity to gain performance experience, receive feedback from instructors, and celebrate your achievements with a supportive community.

We can't wait to see you shine on stage! If you have any questions or need additional tips on preparing for your recital, don't hesitate to reach out to your instructor or office staff. We are all here to help you succeed. See you at the recital!

MUSIC TIP OF THE MONTH : Explore Your Makeup Options

With summer right around the corner, we know your schedule is about to get even busier with trips, sports, and camps. So, we wanted to take a moment to remind you of all your scheduling and makeup options. It’s all easier than ever with your new Lesson Account!

Once logged in, there are so many options for you and your student! You are able to view all available days, times, and Teachers and even move yourself to a new lesson time as needed. You are also able to cancel a lesson, generate a private makeup credit, and schedule that time with your primary instructor - all from the comfort of your home or on the move!

Any week, you are able to attend your lesson virtually or in person so even if you’re traveling, you don’t have to miss out on time with your instructor. In the Summer of 2023, we had 6 international students who continued to take lessons virtually, passed Musical Ladder tests from afar, and didn’t miss a beat!

Our Instructors are ready to help make this a fun and exciting summer, full of growth and goals! Please reach out to the office staff, if you have any questions about setting up a makeup option.

Please welcome these NEW students who enrolled recently!
