The PMA Difference
Blessed to Be a Blessing
Our motto is simple and permeates all we do. We've been given some wonderful gifts: skill and knowledge of music, a knack for teaching others, and a love of people. It's our privilege then to share that gift with everyone we can. At PMA, we believe that we're really in the business of spreading joy. We're just using music as our vehicle!
"We’ve been using Providence Music Academy for 12 years (two children) and have been very pleased with all aspects of our experience. Our younger son has been taking piano lessons with PMA for many years. We’ve been very happy with all the teachers we’ve had. Our kids advanced their skills a lot over the years. It’s clear that the owners, Roger and Jenn, have very high standards. Semi-annual recitals are extremely well run. Because PMA has grown and there are many students, they split the recital up into several short recitals. This works well – each one is about 45 minutes long and they always run on time. PMA does not require their students to memorize their recital pieces as some schools do. I highly recommend PMA. Roger and Jenn run a great school and are always a pleasure to interact with. The teachers are excellent. "

First Class Teachers
Probably the best thing about PMA is your instructor! But what you don't see is the team backing your instructor up. Our teachers collaborate with each other - pooling experience and expertise to better tailor each student's learning experience. Additionally, each instructor is mentored by a master teacher to ensure quality instruction, personal growth, and accountability. And further, if a student's needs should ever change or a student-teacher relationship not be a good fit, we can easily connect you with another quality teacher.
We believe in a balanced approach to music lessons. This means combining fun, student-oriented material with systematic and fundamental music training. Lessons with us are not hard-core, but they are legit.
Fun, Easy Recitals
We are known for our short and well run student concerts that we offer twice a year. We also host online virtual recitals on a regular basis to showcase student's talents.
Better Online Lessons
We use an online lesson app specifically designed for music lessons that is much better than Zoom. It's easy to use with excellent sound quality. It uses a low-latency codec that allow student and teacher to play music at the same time! And any music the teacher displays can be instrantly downloaded for the the student to save/print.
Simple Tuition / No Contracts
We charge a flat monthly tuition price that stays the same throughout the school year. It includes everything associated with the cost of lessons. No other charges are fees.
Students can join or stop anytime during the year.
