Visit the Academy's testimonial page to see what our students are saying about the Rockaway Arts Academy. The Rockaway Arts Academy has a proven track record of offering quality music lessons for guitar, voice, piano, ukulele and drum lessons in Rockaway year round. Our full time mission is teaching music lessons trusted by over 1,000 families for over a decade. We have music students currently attending music lessons, that started over 12 years ago! Our students are just as committed as our music teachers.

4. A comfortable parent’s lounge for our students and parents
Instead of waiting in a music retail store showroom, our clients enjoy a spacious, professional parent’s lounge with comfortable chairs, bottled water service, free Wi-Fi, family friendly music, magazines and television while they wait for their music lessons. We also have large observation windows on every door so that you can watch your child’s music lessons. Or if you prefer you can sit in on their music lesson anytime you like.

5. Fully stocked music lesson rooms.
Our music lesson rooms are stocked with everything our students need for music lessons including amps, stereos, full drum kits with pads, electric pianos with weighted keys and much more. All you need to bring to your music lesson is your guitar, bass guitar, drum sticks, and books. We have spent thousands of dollars on our studio to offer soundproofing and large observation windows. Technology is a big part of our music lessons here at the Rockaway Arts Academy and we have hookups for iPods, iPads and laptops in each room. This allows students to have a modern and engaging music lesson using teaching apps, music software and more. Feel free to "Bring Your Own Device" to your music lesson in addition to your music instrument!

6. Recitals, performance, and recording opportunities
We are the only music school in Rockaway that gives all of our students the opportunity to perform in bands with each other. Even our newest beginner students have the opportunity to play in bands and feel like a rockstar!

Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in music lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital.

In May and December many of our students choose to perform in our biannual recitals. We also are continually adding other performance and recording opportunities for our students as well. Your child will love the opportunity to rock out on the big stage with a real rock band, play in front of their peers at local venues and get professional recordings of songs that they are working on. You are encouraged to bring your family and friends to the show and share in the fun of music! Our performers either perform in groups like in our Rock Band Classes, perform with a teacher, or perform a solo piano, vocal, or guitar piece. Even our youngest beginner music students will have the chance to feel like a rockstar for the day! Visit our videos page to see some of the performances!

7. Professional office staff and music lesson director to serve you.
We are the only music school in Rockaway that has a music lesson and scheduling director dedicated to our customer service during our business hours.

Whether it is an electric piano, guitar, bass, drum set, or even ukulele, you only need to make one convenient stop to the Rockaway Arts Academy to purchase these at a discounted price.

11. Quarterly Progress Reports.
We are the FIRST and ONLY music school in Rockaway that offers quarterly progress reports for all of our private lesson students.

Each student receives a quarterly progress report that lets the students and parents know exactly what they are working on in their music lessons, what they need to improve on, and the goals that we have in the next upcoming months of music lessons. This ensures that a student is guided clearly and that parents can help encourage the student through their music lesson career. We also encourage our student's parents to come and talk to the teachers on a regular basis so we can keep you posted on how your child is doing so that they get the most out of music lessons and you know how to help guide and encourage them.

12. Month to month music lessons.
The Academy does not require semester minimums for music lessons. Every student here is on a month-to-month basis. All our music lessons from guitar, piano, voice, bass, drums, and ukulele are on a month to month basis.

If you are ready to start, you have nothing to lose as we only want students who truly want to be here and we will not commit you to a long term contract.
