UNLEASH YOUR IMAGINATION THROUGH MUSIC & ART
Since 2009, Queens Music Academy (formerly Sunnyside String School) has led the effort to nurture our neighborhood children and encourage to be bold and express through art.
Queens Music Academy IS ORGANIZED INTO THREE SEMESTERS:
FALL IS 15 WEEKS: 2ND WEEK OF SEPT - 1ST/2ND WEEK OF JAN.
SPRING IS 20 WEEKS: 2ND WEEK OF JAN - 1ST /2ND WEEK OF JUN.
SUMMER IS 4-8 WEEKS: JUL - AUG. DATES MAY VARY.
Our school follows Dr. Suzuki’s philosophy. He reasoned that if children have the skill to acquire their mother tongue, then they have the necessary ability to become proficient on a musical instrument. He pioneered the idea that any pre-school age child could begin to play the violin if learning steps were small enough and if the instrument was scaled down to fit their body.
One on one lesson. Try 30 minutes of trial lessons($35). Three trial lessons are possible. Some teachers can introduce couple instruments so the new student can pick their favorite instrument.

You can try up to three trial lessons and then purchase monthly contract ($35 x 4 =$140) or pay 10 sessions or by semester with a check(no processing fee). Q? please call or text (718)440-9696
