About Us

 

Best music school for 5 consecutive years American Express Business Choice Award

The Royal Academy for Music is a community music school located in beautiful Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. Our mission is to integrate music into the daily lives of our community and to ensure that each of our students receive the highest quality music education at an affordable price.  We are celebrating our 20th year in sharing the beautiful gift of music with our community, families and friends.

Our programs for children are designed to bring excitement and joy into to their lives through music. There are very few things in this world that can be as rewarding,  and exciting as music ! Music is not just another activity, it is a vehicle for self-expression, especially for the growing and exploring child. Music is a life long friend that has no ethnic, racial, or economic boundaries. Music sees every person as an equal, and invites everyone to take part in its universal orchestra. Music has the power to not only stir the emotion, but it also has an amazing way of bringing people together. What makes for a truly complete experience in music are the many dedicated and passionate teachers we have here at the Royal Academy. There are such a wide variety of personalities, talents from all over the world.

A goal we all strive for as educators at the Royal Academy is our strong dedication and determination in educating our students to the best of our abilities, not only as educators in music, but as friends. Lifelong friends. To be able to take what was passed down to us from our teachers, and to share this incredible tradition with our students is such a rewarding experience. There is no feeling quite like that of sharing the things we love with the people we love. Most of all, to make beautiful music together as we experience and grow as individuals.

There are many opportunities at the Royal Academy, and we hope that our students take advantage of our programs such as joining chamber ensembles, student and faculty recitals, master-classes and much more. We look forward to working independently with each of our students and would like to extend our deepest gratitude to you for considering the Royal Academy as a possible choice in your music and fine arts study. If you should have any further questions about the academy or would like more information, please contact us anytime at (508) 842-1221.
