Instruments and Supplies

The Academy does not sell or rent instruments, but recommends reliable sources and provides guidance to students in obtaining appropriate instruments and materials. Each student needs their own instrument for home practice. The cost is not included in your music lesson fees or tuition.

Performances, Awards and Practice Incentives
We help you keep motivated to accomplish your potential with a large number of performance opportunities, practice rewards, and achievement awards. (Some of these are included in your music lesson fees and tuition). The Texas Music and Dance Academy has more recitals, festivals and other performance opportunities than any other studio in the area. Join our growing family of budding young artists and pursue your dreams!

Music Faculty

Our instructors specialize in teaching young children and have extensive experience teaching older children and adults from the beginning through advanced levels. Their credentials include university training and degrees in music performance, pedagogy, and/or music education, professional teaching in elementary, secondary schools and colleges, and professional performing experience. Our teachers are trained in a variety of methods. We’ll choose the best approach individually for each private student based on an assessment on his or her unique learning style.


Parents: Take your own music lesson! Or join the fun and learn along with your child. You are recommended to sit in on at least the last 15 minutes of your child’s music lesson or class and take notes. We’ll help you become a valuable partner in your child’s development as a musician.
