Why choose PMA?

The cornerstone of our school is the conviction that every child can,with careful teaching and parental support, become a successful musician able to make music a part of his or her life. We believe music study will enrich their lives through appreciation of beauty, development of disciplined work habits, and increased self-esteem.

Our parents say it best
Instrument Rentals and Purchases

Here are a variety of stores and companies that many of our teachers use and recommend for renting and/or buying an instrument. The process of acquiring an instrument is a very personal choice, so please speak with your teacher for advice on this subject. Please do not purchase an instrument before your first lesson.

Please work with your PMA guitar teacher to find a guitar that is appropriate for your child.  PMA also has a limited amound of small guitars for rent.  Unfortunately, there is no longer a local store that we can recommend, but depending on the needs of your child there are a number of online resources.
