Acme turns 3!


Hello friends,
Today is 3 years since Acme opened for lessons and recording on 9th Street! We’re so proud of all the students who have learned and grown with us and of the great albums and musical projects we’ve been a part of. Our student concert this past weekend was a great success and our spring semester begins Tuesday! We have an amazing charity concert coming up and many more surprises for you to be revealed over the next few months.
Thank you for being part of our musical community!
Rebecca & Rich
