    Award Winning Students

    Academy piano students have won at the state auditions for the Alabama Music Teachers Association (AMTA). They also represent our program at many universities and colleges throughout the United States as piano performance, piano pedagogy, and music education majors. Students have also participated in the local Alabama Federation of Music Clubs hymn and solo auditions receiving superior ratings.

    Frequent Recitals

    These afford students an opportunity to perform on a regular basis. Students may play in as many recitals as the instructor and parent feel they are prepared for. One recital each semester is designated for preschool children.

    Performance Practices

    These are informal performances/mini master classes where students come on a day prior to the recital to perform for an Academy Music Instructor and other students playing that day.  This is a fantastic way for private teachers, students, and parents to be able to make some last minute corrections before the "big" performance at the recital.
