The ability to play an instrument or sing beautifully offers a lifetime of benefits. Music lessons also foster a student's personal, social, and academic development. The Avalon Music Academy has made substantial investments in our facility and elite faculty to provide an uplifting environment designed to foster creativity, confidence and joy.
If you've been told you're tone deaf, uncoordinated, or not musical, I'm here to inform you that everyone can improve their musical skills. As a musician, songwriter, and teacher, I've witnessed hundreds of students transform their lives in ways they never thought possible.

Before Avalon my daughter, age 10, was taking lessons from a local music shop. Her previous teacher did a good job, but just didn’t have the personal connection that I feel Avalon provides. Since starting at Avalon I can see a vast improvement. My daughter enjoys playing and she is excited to go to her lessons. Her guitar teacher is very personable and provides great feedback. It’s also great to see him out in the community playing and supporting local charity events… She gets a kick out of seeing her teacher rockin' out and doing his thing. Great place, great community. - Seth Palmateer, Holland, MI
When my daughter goes to piano lessons, I know that she is getting instruction that is tailored towards her needs. The teacher is amazing at looking at each student individually and designing the time with them to focus on their strengths and provide help to their struggles. The patience and passion for music makes my daughter love to go to class. She has grown in her confidence, musical talent and love of music! Thanks for all you do! - Nicole Gitler, Holland, MI
