2. We Welcome All Beginners
love our beginning students! The beginning stage of any private music
lesson program is the MOST important part. Don't forget that if your child is in beginning band or orchestra at their school, private lessons are very important. Since we only provide music lessons, we can cater to your needs of getting the most
out of your lessons right from the start. We allow you to

improve quickly and see results fast.
3. Pre-K Private Music Program For Your Younger Child (ages 3 - 6)
children, ages 3 to 6, may enroll in our specialty Pre-K PRIVATE music program. You won't find a music teacher who will teach your little one with success and ease anywhere else. While other music studios say "no", we say "YES!". Our Pre-K early learning program will give your children a head start in MUSIC, MATH and LIFE. Parents LOVE this program because their children are learning to play/sing their favorite songs independently without having to take a class and share their time with others. And children LOVE our program because they are busy learning a real instrument all by themselves, learning their favorite songs, learning music terms in a fun way and just having a blast. Our Pre-K music students cannot wait to return each week to learn more. Your child may study piano, violin, cello, ukulele, guitar, and singing
in a fun, easy, and creative lesson time. Lesson lengths can be 20, 30, 40 or 60 minutes available. Learn up to 2 instruments at once.

guitar, violin, cello, ukulele, clarinet, saxophone, flute,
oboe, recorder, beginning brass, preschool, kindergarten and per-instrumental
private lessons. APA gives you the opportunity to try as many
instruments as you wish without having to change teachers, lesson
day/time or charging additional fees. You may combine singing into
your lesson or even study two instruments within your one
lesson per week. For your convenience, we are opened 5 days per week; 10am - 9pm by appointment only.
5. Well established in Ada, Grand Rapids since 1983
Established since 1983, Ada Piano Academy is known to be one of the most qualified music lesson programs which area band directors, school music teachers, and student parents have been recommending for three decades. We have worked hard to design a private music lesson program centered around the needs and wants of our music students dreams and diversified skill levels. Don't just take our word for it, read what our students and their parents say. Visit our testimonial page.
6. Music Lesson Qualities For High Achievers
At APA, we believe that studying music sharpens collaboration, creativity and discipline. Music helps train you to think differently, to process different points of vision and to take pleasure in listening. Studies have also proven that children taking music lessons also increase their brain development and increase reading, math, social skills and test taking. Music is a universal language. Playing an instrument could sharpen the mind, according to a new study.
7. Many FREE Added Benefits To Your Music Lesson

Your instructor will help you prepare for any concert you sign up for. All students may participate, even our Pre-k students. We have little fun extras for the younger students to take advantage of. Our goal is to always make each student feel confidence, comfortable, have fun and leave with a smile on their face wanting to perform again.
9. Private Lessons Are Our Specialty

many advantages for you. They provide great flexibility, are easy to
schedule, and are available in a wide variety of instruments. They also
provide you the opportunity to advance at your own pace while learning
your favorite songs. And, private lessons are all we do.
10. Year Round Lessons
Music lessons are offered year-round because that is the best way to learn music. You won't have to worry about missing lessons during your summer vacation because APA has an awesome private make-up lesson policy June - August where other music facilities only offer group make ups with teachers that don't know your children and not individualized.
11. Our Instructor Cares About You
has had the privilege of keeping the same music instructor since 1983.
We do not hire other teachers, we like our students to grow
musically with the same instructor for many years. At other music
facilities, you will find their teachers frequently being replaced or finding out you have a substitute music teacher for the week. This is not the case at
specialize in limiting the number of students we teach so we
can get to know you on a personal level. We never use substitutes teachers.
12. 24/7 Assistance While You Are At Home

favorite songs faster. Therefore, as long as you are taking private

help you fix any problems or remedy any of your questions throughout the
week. Even parents have 24/7 to our instructor as well. It is all
13. Spacious Music Play Room
Often times, at other music facilities, private music lessons take place crammed in small rooms with many other lessons given at the same time which everyone can hear; noise everywhere. Well, not at APA! We offer you the individualized setting where you are the only one taking a lesson in a quiet, well lite, colorful, spacious atmosphere. Our music play room is located in the lower level with room enough for many music centers, three pianos, a computer music lab, area to dance and move around at all times. We learn music in many different ways.
