Are we the right music school for you?

The Shore Music Academy is the largest music school in Monmouth County with an active enrollment of over 250 students.More music students take lessons here than at any other school in the area.

While you are here researching the best school for you, please consider the benefits of becoming an Academy student and find out why we are Monmouth County's number one choice for music lessons.

12 benefits of becoming an Academy student:

1. Violin, Guitar, Bass, Voice, Piano, Drums, Brass, and Woodwinds in one location.

This saves our students time and money, as one family can take multiple instruments on the same day. Other studios offer multiple instruments, but we are the only one to offer all of the most popular instruments. Electric & Acoustic Guitar, Electric Bass, Voice, Piano, Drums, Brass, and Woodwinds.

2. The largest and most qualified teaching faculty in Monmouth County.

We have 15 music teachers, all with either college training or professional performance experience.Our music teachers are dedicated to learning about your personal musical goals and helping you to achieve them. With at least three music teachers for every instrument, we are confident that we have the right teacher to meet your music lesson needs. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and dedicated to teaching you the style of music that you want to learn in your music lesson.

3. The widest range of music lesson times available six days a week!

We are the only music school in Monmouth County that offers music lessons six days a week from early in the morning to late at night to accommodate your busy schedule.
1:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Monday - Friday.
9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

4. A proven track record of excellence since 2004.

Visit our testimonial page to see what our students are saying. Every year, aspiring music teachers start their own studio, and a year or two later it’s closed. The Academy has a proven track record of offering quality music, guitar, voice, piano and drum lessons in Ocean Township, NJ year round. Our full time mission is teaching music lessons trusted by over 1,000 families for more than a decade.

5. A comfortable parent's lounge for our clients.

With over 3,000 square feet we have the most spacious and parent friendly waiting area in Monmouth County .

Instead of waiting in a music retail store showroom, our clients enjoy a spacious, professional parent's lounge with comfortable chairs, Wi-Fi, magazines, bottled water and coffee service. We also provide large observation windows on every door so that you can watch your child's lesson while you wait. Or if you prefer you can sit in on their lesson anytime you like.

6.The most technologically advanced and fully stocked music lesson rooms in Ocean 6 days a week!.

Our rooms are stocked with everything *you need for music lessons*, including amps, stereos, full drum kits with pads, keyboards, pianos and more. All you need to bring is your instrument. We have spent thousands of dollars on our studio to offer soundproofing and large observation windows.

7.We are the only music school in Monmouth County that offers free recitals and modern rock recitals.

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 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.

For our students these recitals are free and unlike many schools we do not charge recital participation or admission fees. This can only be found at the Shore Music Academy.

We also host a rock band showcase three times a year, which gives your child the opportunity to play with a live rock band!
8. Trophies, certificates and award wristbands to celebrate achievement.

We are the only music school in Monmouth County that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces (see pictures to the right) by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder is our unique method of music education that you can only get here

More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins. You can only get the Musical Ladder here. We also specialize in music lessons for adults.

9. Make- Up Classes

Missed a lesson? Out of town? No problem. Sign up for a make-up class whenever it's convenient for you. Make-up classes are available all year round. Students benefit from these informal, small group settings, and have an opportunity for an extended lesson with one of our fabulous teachers. The group make-ups offer a perfect opportunity for informal performances, getting to know other students who take the same instrument, and reinforcing material or learning something new in a fun class with other students.

10. Professional office staff seven days a week to serve you.

We are the only music school in Ocean that offers professional customer service for their students six days a week.

Many music studio desks are staffed by the teacher/owner or more commonly an answering machine. We have three office team members who are available at the front desk to assist our clients quickly and professionally.

11. Picture Day

We are the only music school in Ocean that offers a picture day for their students.

Every May and December we host a free picture day with a professional photographer. This is a service that our student's parents love as they all want quality photos of their children (example pictured right). Adults are welcome too! Students can bring their instruments to the photo shoot and wear whatever they like.

12. Month to Month lessons.

The Academy does not require semester minimums for lessons. Every student here is 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.
