The Music Academy at Point Washington was created with the vision to bring music education to every stage of life. Launched in the fall of 2022, the Academy currently serves nearly 50 students between the ages of five and eighty years old. You can find our Academy Handbook at the link below. Please take a look at the information on our site to see what we offer.
We currently offer piano, guitar, ukulele, and voice instruction. We have four instructors with private studios in each of these areas. Tuition is charged on a monthly basis at the rate of $110 monthly, charged September-May. Students are welcome to enroll and begin lessons at any time, depending on studio availability. Piano and guitar students are eligible for lessons starting in Kindergarten; young students will be offered a free sample lesson with the instructor to determine readiness for private study. Voice lessons are offered to students in 7th grade and above; prior to this age, students are encouraged to participate in our free choir classes for developmentally appropriate group vocal instruction.
The purpose of the Children's Choir is to provide high quality choral music instruction to the Point Washington community. The choir will explore repertoire both religious and secular, including concert pieces, contemporary Christian, hymns, folk music, and more - all working towards the goals of improving aural and reading skills and fostering appreciation of various cultures, styles, and traditions of song.
Students in 1st-8th grade are eligible to join; registration fee is $25 for the year. Rehearsals take place in the Music Suite at PWUMC on Wednesdays, 4-5pm.
The Honor Choir is an intermediate group that will move at a fast pace and study varied genres of repertoire in 2-3 parts. Students will learn to read choral music and navigate appropriate choral technique. Students are welcome to join with any level of choral experience and are expected to fully participate and focus during weekly rehearsals. This ensemble will perform multiple times in the fall and at the annual Spring Showcase in May.
Students in 5th-12th grade are eligible to join; registration fee is $30 for the year. Rehearsals take place in the Music Suite at PWUMC on Mondays, 5:15-6pm.
