The school year may be ending, but the opportunity to nurture young minds through music and artistic expression doesn’t have to take a summer vacation. At After School Music Academy (ASMA), we understand the importance of keeping the creative spark alive throughout the year. That’s why we offer a vibrant range of summer music programs designed to engage and inspire young learners. 

Building on the Foundation: Continuity Through Summer Music Programs

As educators, we recognize the transformative power of music education. Studies consistently demonstrate the positive impact that music has on a child’s cognitive development, social skills, and emotional well-being. However, the traditional school calendar can sometimes limit opportunities for consistent and enriching musical experiences. Summer music programs offer a valuable bridge, allowing students to maintain their momentum and build upon the skills they’ve honed throughout the school year.

We’re proud to offer the same popular and impactful programming throughout the summer, with slight schedule alterations to better accommodate students. 

A Symphony of Offerings: Diverse Summer Programs

At ASMA, we believe in catering to a variety of interests and experience levels. Our summer music programs encompass a diverse range of options:

Activity-Filled Ensemble Classes

Our lively ensemble classes are designed to ignite a collaborative spirit and sense of community. Led by enthusiastic and experienced instructors, these classes allow students to delve into diverse musical styles, develop their playing or singing skills within a group setting, and experience the joy of creating music together.

Group Lessons for All Levels

ASMA’s summer group lessons offer students a fantastic opportunity to refine their skills on instruments like the ukulele, piano, drums, guitar, and many more. These lessons provide a focused learning environment where students receive personalized guidance from our exceptional faculty. Group lessons also foster camaraderie and a sense of healthy competition, motivating students to excel.

Private Lessons for Dedicated Learners

Summer can be the perfect time for a focused and in-depth exploration of a particular instrument. ASMA offers enriching private lessons upon request, catering to students seeking personalized instruction and a chance to refine their technique. Our instructors tailor each lesson to the individual student’s needs and aspirations, ensuring a truly personalized learning experience.

Beyond the Notes: The Value of Summer Music Programs

While honing musical skills is a fundamental aspect of our summer offerings, ASMA’s programs foster a multitude of benefits that extend beyond the realm of music theory and instrumental technique. These include: 

Maintaining Momentum: Summer music programs help students retain the knowledge and skills acquired throughout the school year. This fosters a sense of continuity and ensures a smoother transition back into regular after-school classes in the fall.

Building Confidence: Performing alongside peers in an encouraging environment is a fantastic confidence booster. Our summer ensembles and group lessons provide numerous opportunities for students to showcase their talents and celebrate their musical achievements.

Exploring New Avenues: Summer programs offer the perfect platform for students to explore unfamiliar instruments or musical styles. This fosters curiosity, broadens their musical horizons, and allows them to discover new areas of musical passion.

Fostering a Lifelong Love of Music: Summer provides valuable time for students to explore their creativity and develop a lifelong appreciation for music. Engaging these programs can ignite a passion that will continue to enrich their lives for years to come.
