The Music Shop Academy staff is university trained, highly experienced in performing and teaching, and enthusiastic to help you achieve your individual goals.

One of the most unique aspects of The Music Shop Academy is our in-house ensembles. We have beginning Suzuki violin classes (4-9 year olds), string orchestras in 3 levels, an adult symphony, rock band, and group guitar classes.

The Music Shop Academy has 15 lesson studios fully equipped with the newest technology, soundproofing and grand pianos or keyboards. All our studios have glass doors or cameras for parents to view. We also have an on-site coffee shop (The Daily Joe), leather couches, café tables and free WiFi!

Lessons are taught Monday through Saturday from 9:00am-9:00pm. We can even schedule more than one lesson at the same time for siblings studying different instruments.

Music is made to be shared and there is no better feeling than taking a bow for a well-deserved performance. Whether you are playing at a formal recital or just sharing a favorite piece in our coffee shop, all musicians love applause! We also participate in community outreach and benefit concerts.

The Music Shop can provide quality instruments for the beginner or advanced student and a repair shop to help maintain your instrument. The Music Shop rents instruments to schools throughout NJ at the most competitive rates. The store will also supply all lesson materials and accessories for your instrument.

We encourage our students with a ladder of accomplishments signified with an arm band and certificate, as well as regular performance opportunities and open mic nights in our coffee shop.
