I love how my children have taken to piano since we started at the school. I appreciate the open dialogue I have with the director and teachers – who are very receptive to parent’s suggestions and concerns. In addition, it has been important for me that the teachers adapt to the individual learning style of the student. For these reasons, I have recommended Chestnut Hill Music Academy to my friends.

teacher. She is a very methodical instructor who works with the
student on both the theory and practical aspects of singing. She takes
the students interest in mind with the choice of songs and has greatly
improved my daughter’s skill and interest in singing for the past two years.
You can tell that Marie truly enjoys what she does.
CHMA was able to accommodate my busy schedule for a weekly instruction day and time. My teacher makes the instruction fun and productive each week. I love that you offer lessons on a variety of instruments.in case I get really musically ambitious. All good. Bill M.
Marie has not only taught my daughter great technique, but inspired her to want to sing better…She even likes to practice! After every lesson, Marie takes the time to brief me about what they worked on and how she’s progressing. I know what to listen for during practice time and how to help her in between lessons. It’s made all the difference.
The make-up policy is great. No stressing over crazy schedules as the
holidays approach or school begins. I can just arrange a make up lesson
with with our teacher or someone else at the school…on a completely
different instrument! Meghan C.
Our son‘s experience with CHMA has really enriched his life – the teachers inspire the students in a fun, positive way and our son has not only gained music ability but overall confidence in himself. The organization is extremely well-run and offers other avenues of music support like concerts and band involvement. In short, CHMA really knows how to teach music, from beginners through accomplished musicians. Lessons are personal and the teachers are committed to finding what works for each particular student at any given time. One week our son is focusing hard on technique, the next he may be letting loose and belting it out with his teacher. We are lucky to be part of CHMA! Kristyn V.
