About Our Music Schools
We are a privately held company with schools in Powell and Lewis Center, Ohio. Our 1st store the Powell Academy of Music opened in 2008 and our newest location, the Lewis Center Music Academy opened in June, 2017. We are the largest music school in Columbus, OH and one of the fastest growing in the midwest. (Our Lewis Center store went from 0 to over 200 students in less than 6 months after opening)
As a company that is locally owned and operated by music professionals, we understand the obstacles, frustrations, rewards, and challenges that teachers face every day when striving to provide top notch educational services to their students.
During our 10+ years in the educational field, we have implemented and continue to develop a variety of unique systems to ensure that our faculty minimize time spent on administrative tasks and maximize their time spent in doing what they love.
We are a mission driven organization. We believe so strongly in our mission that we decided to display, and make it the primary focus in our waiting rooms.
