Generally, students aged 5 and above are suitable for a music class, but there may be exceptions depending on your child’s aptitude. Our teachers assess your child to determine if they are developmentally ready to begin lessons or not.  APA offers music lessons for all ages, including adults!

APA Musical – Mary Poppins Jr. 
Group Glee & Drama Club

At APA, we currently teach the following private lessons:





According to demand, we may introduce more instruments to facilitate our students.


Unique Approach

At APA, we believe that each child is unique and we need to bring out the best in them. Keeping that in mind, our teachers develop a personalized lesson plan for each student. The music teachers have university degrees in music and extensive background in performance. They are trained not just in music but to connect with the students on a deeper level, enhancing their ability to perform better.

Performance Recitals

Each year APA holds 2 music recitals at Oak Creek Salvation Army. Students who choose to enroll in these events will begin their preparation months in advance and receive Performance Participation medals to highlight student achievement. The Oak Creek Salvation Army seats up to 400 people.  Students are encouraged to invite friends and family members to attend and watch.

Makeup Lessons

As these are 1-on-1 lessons with complete attention to your child, we do not provide a refund for any lessons that have been missed.

Students may receive up to 2 makeup lessons per semester if both of the following criteria are met:

  • APA is notified of the student’s absence at least 12 hours in advance of the students lesson time
  • The music teacher has an opening in their regular schedule, due to another student’s absence

Your child may also redeem their missed lesson in any of our group dance classes.

Music Books

When it is time to purchase music books for your private lesson, APA offers 2 easy options:

1 – We order your books for you. You will be charged a $3 service fee for this option.

2– You can purchase your books through another site or a store of your choosing.

Being a member of the studio has not only taught our daughter how to dance, but has also taught her about commitment and teamwork, and has increased her self-confidence. Our daughter loves going to dance class and competitions, not only to see the wonderful friends she has made but also because her coaches make learning and competing exciting, challenging and fun.

Devin H.

My daughter has been attending the Oak Creek Academy of Performing Arts for the past 8 years. She is in a variety of classes and really enjoys each class. She has been happy with all of her teachers and has built some lasting friendships.

Vicki C.

In addition to learning the fundamentals and discipline of dance, Kate has made new friends and developed socially, as well. She can hardly wait to go to ballet and tap each week because, "Dance day is the BEST day of the week!" I am also pleased with the knowledge and dedication of the staff at The Academy.

Sari F.

The Academy teachers serve as good role models for them and hold them to high standards both on the dance floor and in their everyday lives. My daughters have learned self-confidence, healthy body image and a respect of others while learning dance skills and having fun along the way. They have built great friendships and love to go to dance class.

Kelley H.

Both at the recreational level and at the competitive level, my three dancers have mastered new dance skills, gained self-confidence, and formed bonds with their instructors and classmates that will last a lifetime. The Academy of Performing Arts Staff, Facilities, and Program Options are second to none!

Amy S.

It is refreshing to work with a studio that encourages age appropriate music, costumes and dances. They not only teach the technical and artistic skills of dance, they truly are mentors. . Not only has the Academy taught my girls to be great dancers, the staff and teachers have encouraged them to be great young ladies!

Stacy L.

Our daughter, Faith, has now been attending the Academy for over 6 years. You can really tell the teachers love what they do and that they really care about their students. Both of my children are now taking guitar lessons at the Academy and the music teachers are just as inviting and caring as the dance teachers. I am always proud to say my children are a part of The Academy and always recommend the Academy to anyone who asks where my children go.
