“I am so pleased with AMFA! I cannot even begin to express what an excellent academy this is. My son has been going there for violin since he was 6 yrs old and is well known as one of the best violinists in all of Los Angeles. He has taken first place in numerous competitions. This is the best school for the arts. Everyone from the director to all the instructors are amazing and care so much for their students and always give their best to bring out the full potential in each child. This is the best school, I would recommend the AMFA to any parent.“
