My kiddo has always been delayed in his fine motor skills. He still struggles; however, we were told this morning by a therapist that the guitar lessons are definitely a help. We didn’t put him in guitar for that reason - we put him in because he loves music and wanted to learn. His teacher has been so wonderful with him and they have built an amazing rapport. I’ve seen his confidence level rise in the year or so of lessons.
We have been very happy here and continue to be. I just cannot sing their praises enough - unless I took voice lessons (which they offer). -Jennifer E.
"My son's piano teacher is very patient with my 9 old year who had no experience with music or piano and this is what I was looking for in a music academy". -Keisha W.
Guitar lessons at Indianapolis Music Academy have been a great experience for our daughter. She has shown steady improvement and is enjoying how this has made music class in school easier for her. We are enjoying her having this additional skill in her life. Casey A.

We have been very happy! My sons have had an excellent experience with their instructors for guitar and drums. They have been extra patient and encouraging with my drummer. My guitar player loves his lessons with Mike and has learned so much in just a few months. Highly recommend. Krista T.
"My guitar instructor is a very knowledgeable guitar player and has taught me a lot of theory that I was lacking. I continue to learn a lot with each lesson and would recommend Indianapolis Music Academy to other players looking to improve their skills." -Aaron F.

We have multiple piano studios, guitar studios and multi-use studios for other instruments.

With over 1,000 square feet of lesson space, we have a very spacious and parent and kid friendly waiting area in Indianapolis.
Instead of waiting in a music retail store showroom, our clients enjoy a spacious, parent's lounge with comfortable chairs, kids toys, Wi-Fi and magazines. We also have big observation windows on every door so that you can watch your child's lesson while you wait. Or if you prefer you can sit in on their lesson anytime you like.
8. Annual photo day with free sitting.
We are the only music academy in Indianapolis that schedules a free photo day with a photographer. In fact we had 3 photo days last year. We take several portrait shots of each student and we give them a few 4x6 prints. Larger prints can be ordered. Students may have their pictures taken with their instruments or we can provide pianos, keyboard and drums for students during the sitting so they don't have to bring their own.
9. Fully stocked lesson rooms.
Our rooms are stocked with everything you need for music lessons, including amps, practice pads, electronic drum kits, drum sticks, keyboards, pianos and more. We do sometimes have ukuleles and guitars you can use for the lesson, but we suggest you bring your own ukulele or guitar if you have one.
10. Free music recitals at our annual student showcases!
We have free recitals and free special concerts a few times a year. Parents want to know how much their children are progressing on their instruments. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital.
For our students these recitals are free and unlike many schools in Indianapolis we do not charge recital participation or admission fees. We also take red carpet photos at the end of the recital. Our after recital photos are very popular with our students and parents.
11. Month to Month lessons.
The Academy does not require semester minimums for lessons. Every student here is on a month-to-month basis. In fact, if you pay for your first month of lessons and you are not happy or if you are not able to continue with your lessons, we'll give you your money back on all of your unused lessons.
12. We have a wonderful staff of teachers who have warm personalities, are friendly and who love to share their knowledge of their instruments with others.
