Here is the Academy's BIG news...



It is with great pleasure that we announce that The Music Academy will be under new management as we enter the fall. Taking control of The Music Academy's administration will be Linda Flinsbaugh, with the capable assistance of her daughter, Mary. The new owners will continue the classes and lessons already in place, and have new ideas for the Academy and its activities. The Academy's fine teachers, Mary Flinsbaugh and John Garcia will continue with their summer instruction schedules until the end of the August. In the meantime The Music Academy's new owners will begin setting up for September. A new piano instructor will be getting acquainted with the Academy and its students, and begin teaching in the fall.

A gathering for continuing students, returning students, and new students will take place on Thursday evening 28 August from 5-7pm, in order to introduce the Academy's new management, and permit students and their families to meet the faculty, and set up a schedule for the academic year. The community is invited to attend, and prospective students are definitely welcome.
