Empowering Students with Music Education
Q. Should my child take music?
A. For over 40 years we've watched students start and then excel & succeed in music! We've watched skeptical students become avid music lovers, nervous students become confident musicians, and beginning plays become advanced performers! Music will become a big part of your child's life as they develop their skill, and watch it give them more opportunities than they ever thought possible. One of our parents had this to say about their son, a saxophone player named Henry:
Q. Where do you teach?
A. We have over 130 Band & Keyboard programs in 22 cities across 6 states. We work with private schools to offer the best music programs in the country!
Q. What ages do you teach?
A. We teach all ages. Most Bands are for 4th grade and up, while Keyboard students start in 2nd grade.
Q. Do I have to audition to be in music?
A. Not at all! EVERYBODY is able to learn an instrument!
Q. What instrument can I learn?
A. We have students in Band learning almost every instrument you can think of! If your school is partnering with us and this is your first time in Band, we recommend Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, or Snare Drum. We also have Keyboard Classes, Recorder Classes, and more... all sorts of Musical Adventures. Just ask your school!
Q. Where should I get an instrument?
A. Students are able to use any instrument they have access to! Mom's clarinet that's sitting in a closet, or a purchase or rental from a local music store!
AIMA has partnered with Music & Arts to provide special rates for your instrument, including a discounted trial period. No matter what area your school is in, there is a Music & Arts store or representative available to assist you with instrument purchases & rentals. A Music & Arts representative will also be available to come to several of our AIMA classes for minor tweaks on student instruments!
Q. Who is the teacher?
A. We are THRILLED to provide our students with teachers who have Music Education degrees, teaching experience, and a LOVE for what they do! Many of our teachers also have Masters and Doctoral degrees! Your teacher will be at your school and able to do a proper introduction in person. Until then, know that all of our teachers are prepping for the School Year and working hard to be ready to see you in class!
Q. Are you hiring?
A. We'd love to have you with us. Our hiring process is as follows:
The best candidate will have a love for students, an enthusiasm for recruiting students to Band programs in their schools, and a passion for building music programs marked by excellence!
