Summer Lessons & LaGuardia Prep Classes

acme hall studios

Hello friends,

We hope everyone had a fantastic spring break. As we near the midpoint for the semester, it's time to start thinking about summer! Did you know that we offer summer lessons? Summer session runs a short 6 weeks so it's a great time to try a new instrument. We are also ready to announce our upcoming high school vocal audition prep classes for summer and fall. In addition, we've got a new website! More info on everything below.

We hope to see you in our studios soon!

Summer Lessons

As Mike Joyce of The Smiths once said "You can't show someone how to play the drums in six weeks, but you can point them in the right direction." Join us for 6 lessons on a new instrument! You'll be pointed in the right direction with a solid introduction.

You may also use the summer session to extend your current lessons. Summer lessons immediately follow spring semester with no break. Only Tuesday & Thursday lessons are available for summer. The dates are:

  • Tuesdays (Jun 19, 26, Jul 3, 10, 17, 24)
  • Thursdays (Jun 21, 28, Jul 5, 12, 19, 26)

Interested in learning with us this summer? Fill out this request form and you'll hear right back from us about available slots and instructors.

In this 6-week class, students will learn the skills to succeed at auditions for LaGuardia, Murrow, PPAS, Frank Sinatra, and other performing arts high schools in New York City. This popular class at Acme will prepare students for both the required rhythm and melody testing, as well as for singing a cappella in front of judges. We’ll cover what makes a great audition and workshop songs for each other. $250. 6 students max.
