When you join Potomac Arts Academy for music classes, you become part of the George Mason University community! Many of our faculty members are Mason professors or highly recommended graduate music students. All of our faculty members, regardless of University affiliation, are highly qualified, dedicated and experienced musicians and performers. We strive to provide the highest level of instruction while creating a supportive relationship with our students and instilling a lifelong love of music.
GROUP CLASSES VS. PRIVATE LESSONS
Private lessons offer individual instruction geared specifically to each students needs and goals. All experience levels and ages are welcome, however we recommend starting with GROUP MUSIC CLASSES (see below) when possible, then progressing to private music lessons. For voice lessons, most teachers recommend starting when a students voice is fully developed after puberty. However, younger students can start with GROUP VOICE CLASSES as early as age 5 to learn basics of strong vocal technique with proper breathing, vocal exercises and basic musicianship in a fun, engaging environment.
