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.  

Our Mission

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.

MUSIC LESSONS

We are a comprehensive music school, course offerings include: private instruction for all orchestral and band instruments (violin, cello, viola, flute, saxophones, clarinet, trombone and trumpet), as well as piano, voice, guitar, and composition; musicianship; orchestra ;chamber music; Suzuki violin and cello classes.  

Enrichment Programs

Our Enrichment programs are designed for children aged 4-13 years old. Participants will explore Art, Music, Science, Theater and Legos on their respective weekdays. No Enrichment classes during school holidays. However, Pop Up Camps available on most of these holidays (see Pop Up Camp dates list; Pop Up Camps must be registered for separately). See full Fall Enrichment calendar below for a list of all class dates.
