History of First Academy of Music


The school was founded in 1998 (under the name “Community Music School”) and continues to provide vocal and instrumental lessons with the finest teachers. Members of the faculty include professional educators, church musicians, symphony players, and active performers. Bonita Springs music students will find an outstanding resource in our faculty and our facilities.

We offer private lessons on the following instruments: piano, organ, guitar, voice, flute, clarinet, saxophone, violin, viola, cello, french horn, trombone, tuba, and percussion. We also offer group musical experiences for children and adults. Performance opportunities occur at the end of each semester in group recitals, as well as over the course of the program year as opportunities arise. At First Academy, we value the importance of music making as an educational and personal endeavor. You are invited to experience the thrill of accomplishment and the joy of personal creative expression here. Our desire is to nurture your musical interest and ability so that you will enjoy the benefits of music making for the rest of your life.

The mission of the First Academy of Music of First Presbyterian Church is to provide high-quality musical instruction in a Christian environment for students of all ages and levels of skill, for the purposes of personal enrichment and for providing opportunities to serve God and His church.

Instruction at First Academy of Music is open to all interested students, regardless of their religious affiliation or commitment.
