As we navigate through this challenging time as responsibly as we can, we at the Academy of Music and Fine Arts have taken enhanced measures to protect the health and safety of our team, students and guests based on guidance from the CDC and other government agencies. The standards below are currently in effect and must be observed by all visitors to ensure a responsible and enjoyable environment for everyone. 

WE ARE TAKING HEALTH AND SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR OUR INSTRUCTORS, STUDENTS, AND COMMUNITY. SOME OF OUR MEASURES INCLUDE:

SYMPTOM CONTROL

Instructors with a fever or cold and flu-like symptoms such as a cough, sore throat, runny nose, or body aches are required to stay at home. Students with a fever or cold and flu-like symptoms will not be admitted.

Piano Lessons

MUSIC

Piano Lessons

The Academy of Music and Fine Arts employs a method for teaching piano that is different from music lessons given at other schools.  Similar to the methods used in Europe where the traditions of classical music were established, piano lessons at the Academy are rooted in tradition and established on a solid foundation of proven methods.

Our patient and considerate instructors truly honor the unique characteristics of each student, formulating individual lesson plans tailored to each student’s personal style, skill level and aptitude.

We offer a broad selection of musical styles including classical, pop, jazz, blues. R&B, folk and country. As necessary, the technical performance of each musical composition can be specially simplified giving a beginning student the ability to perform any classical piece or modern song that he or she wishes.

Individual Piano Lessons

Weekly 45-minute individual lessons.

In-person lessons available at the Academy at limited capacity. ALL AMFA classes available online at full capacity.

“This is a true academy, where children learn classical music and treasure it for a lifetime. Mrs. Laura Sokhikian not only knows how to connect children to the world of music, she is well-versed in keeping them motivated. Furthermore, her professionalism and passion in music is unparalleled. My children’s progress in learning music has become their passion. If your child has an interest in music, this is the school you should consider.
