The Berkeley Academy of Music is committed to instilling motivation, dedication, and self-expression in students through focused musical study. We believe that embarking on a musical adventure creates avenues of cognitive development and personal triumph. We are dedicated to jumpstarting important qualities that lead to the greatest satisfaction and pleasure in a student's future. Studying music sets the foundation for success in all facets of life.

We feature private lessons for all ages, music theory classes, summer day camps, student recitals, faculty recitals, musical excursions.
