The Academy of Music
Our mission is to provide the joys and benefits of learning music to the residents of Hampton Roads, regardless of their ability to pay. We have seen firsthand the power that music has to shape a child's life, and are honored to teach approximately 400 students every year!
One of our proudest accomplishments is the Park View Elementary strings program, now in its 17th year. Twice a week, we give violin instruction to 200 students at no charge. In addition to learning music, students also learn valuable skills such as dedication, discipline, and teamwork. We have also begun a similar outreach program in Norfolk's own Park Place school.
One in three of our students receives a scholarship for private instruction, and the Academy is pleased to offer $36,000 annually in scholarship funds.
