INSTRUCTION & PERFORMANCE

Renowned faculty, award-winning students, and custom facilities make NJAOM a premier center of excellence in classical music for young talent.

Our approach to learning develops every aspect of our students, from focus to discipline and attention to detail.

NJAOM provides a nurturing environment for students to grow and learn through music. The joy and excitement of handling an instrument and learning to make music go hand-in-hand with confidence, structure, self-discipline, and focus. From our youngest students at age 3 up through the teenage years and beyond, our faculty are skilled at balancing challenges and positive reinforcement to foster talent in each and every student and inspire them to reach for the next level of achievement.

Success isn’t built in a day, a week, or even a month. Steady practicing leads to success, not only in music but also in academics and daily life.

What makes us
unique

NJAOM is the region’s premier training center for young musicians. We offer the kind of quality instruction paralleled in major pre-college programs at top conservatories. Our breadth of instruction through classes, private lessons, performance classes, and chamber music provides the necessary building blocks to nurture students’ musicianship from beginner level through pre-professional caliber.

our
Approach

NJAOM provides a tailored, nurturing environment for students to grow and learn through music. The joy and excitement of handling an instrument and learning to make music go hand-in-hand with confidence, structure, self-discipline, and focus. From our youngest students at age 3 up through the teenage years and beyond, our faculty are skilled at providing just the right balance of challenge and positive reinforcement to foster talent in each and every student and inspire them to reach for the next level of achievement. For young strings and piano students, we begin learning through the Suzuki Method, which fosters the ability to develop the ear first, focusing on posture and tone, followed by learning to read music.

Why
Music?

A parent’s decision to enroll their child in music instruction is often a significant turning point in their child’s life. Music, whether learned as a hobby or as a goal toward a career, enriches the lives of those it touches and has a much farther-reaching impact throughout a child’s life than just the obvious benefit of learning to play music. Research has consistently proven that children who study music have academic advantages, such as improved spatial-temporal and language skills, as well as artistic benefits. Taking music lessons allows children to gain emotional and artistic expression, perseverance, discipline, ability to set and achieve goals, social awareness and interaction, and more. These life skills are beneficial through adulthood and are invaluable in the pursuit of any goals one may have in life.

Getting Involved

NJAOM offers performance and competition opportunities to provide experience preparing for an event and getting up in front of an audience to perform. This invaluable experience allows students to gain motivation and practice with purpose. A select group of our students also participate in performances throughout the community, by invitation, and learn to perform as a soloist as well as with peers. NJAOM parents also have the opportunity to become involved in a variety of events and planning throughout the year.
