Musical ability is not an inborn talent but an ability which can be developed. Any child who is properly trained can develop musical ability, just as all children develop the ability to speak their mother tongue. The potential of every child is unlimited.”The study of music teaches “sensitivity, discipline and endurance” and ultimately produces “a beautiful heart.
To send light into the darkness of hearts, such is the duty of an artist.
Every art form encourages, nurtures, and even requires the best of our creative ability. This is, after all, the special quality of the human spirit and, thought thorough training in the Suzuki Talent Education method, the child develops a beautiful tone – his own, personal tone – and a musical, singing heart.

Seeing the joy in my son’s eyes when he plays makes me so happy we found The Music Academy!
“Don’t think of what you can afford. Think about what you need. Music is that essential.”

The Music Academy of Rockford has always been a great place for my children to learn an instrument. The teachers are fantastic and the activities that the children do are perfect for their self-esteem.
I never guessed I’d have the chance to play chamber music! Thanks so much for including adults. I’ll never forget this experience.
I love the Music Academy. The quality of the instruction and articulation in curriculum are outstanding. We get a lot for our investment.
