All of our teachers are fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
California Music Academy is the leading music school for children in Santa Monica.
For almost 20 years, we ran the largest and oldest “brick and mortar” music school in Los Angeles.
However, to ensure the safety of our students in the Covid-19 era, we have transitioned to private In-Home lessons and Live Virtual lessons.
We continue to focus exclusively on teaching children and teens, and offer lessons 7-days a week in Santa Monica and its surrounding communities.
We have many students who take singing lessons either by itself or simultaneously with instrumental music lessons. Students sing all kinds of music from their favorite artists to classical arias. Our voice teachers have university training in music specializing in voice and sing everything from pop and jazz to opera. Our teachers all have performance backgrounds as well. Just a sample of what a student will learn in singing lessons includes how to breathe properly, how to increase their range, proper pitch, how to project and stage presence. We provide a professional accompanist who rehearses with the students and plays for them at the recitals. Our private, one-on-one voice lesson lengths are 30 minutes, 45 minutes or 1 hour.
Many of our students take piano & Singing Mixed lessons. Such lessons are very effective in keeping students engaged and motivated. We start Piano and Singing mixed lessons at age 5 onward. Beginners usually take 30-minute lessons while intermediate and advanced students take 45-minutes or 1-hour lessons.
some of our students take guitar & Singing Mixed lessons. Such lessons are not for everyone, because they tend to be challenging especially for beginners and younger students. We start Guitar and Singing mixed lessons at age 8 onward. Beginners usually take 30-minute lessons while intermediate and advanced students take 45-minutes or 1 hour lessons.
