Why Choose Surprise Academy of Music?

Since 2007 we have helped hundreds of students begin and continue on their musical journey. We are the most family-orientated music school in the Northwest Phoenix area, offering private lessons in all popular instruments, as well as voice. We know you are busy and it can be very hard to find a reliable music teacher. That’s why we go above and beyond to find the BEST music teachers in the Northwest Phoenix area–so you don’t have to!

Other Benefits to Consider:

Choose from many different types of teachers who teach a wide variety of instruments.

This allows you to learn the instrument you choose and even have siblings or other family members take lessons at the same time, or back-to-back. You can easily change teachers or instruments along your journey to ensure that you LOVE the music you are making!

We are open 6 days a week!

Every family’s schedule is different, so we want to have as many openings as possible for our community. We even have daytime lessons available, if you homeschool or work from home.

Choose from a variety of instruments!

We teach Guitar, Bass, Voice, Violin, Cello, Drums, Piano, Ukulele, Clarinet, Trumpet, Saxophone, Trombone, Mandolin, Banjo, Flute and More-- all in one location and online!

Bi-Annual Recitals!

Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it is to have their child participate in a recital. In January and June many of our students choose to perform in our biannual recitals. Our recital location has a grand piano, so piano students are not playing on just a keyboard. Our sound system ensures a quality experience for all!

We know you value safety and security-- and we do too!

We do background checks on all of our teachers and always have windows on our doors so students are not alone with their teacher. In over 15 years of business, we have never had an issue and that’s because we go above and beyond for our families!

You are never locked into a contract.

We want you to love lessons and love your teacher and that’s why we offer a money-back guarantee during your first month. If you aren’t happy, just request a refund for the unused lessons and we will give you a refund. Past the first month, you can give us notice and we will not charge you for the following month.
