Our Approach

NJAOM provides a nurturing environment for students to grow and learn through music. The fun 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 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.

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 others. NJAOM parents also have the opportunity to become involved in a variety of events and planning throughout the year, as well as joining our Parent Committee. View some of our recent performances

It is a special gift for a young musician to work collaboratively with a great artist. I have watched Grant Moffett perform, coach, and encourage from the piano bench for many years. Grant not only insists on interpreting every phrase, but he helps developing musicians reach a musical level beyond their years.

This is an elite school for music instruction and by far the best in the area. Not only am I so impressed by the caliber of talent among the instructors, but their ability to teach children and adults is inspiring. I can't say enough great things. If you are looking for top notch musical instruction for yourself or your children, you will find it at NJAOM.

Christina Castelli's own personal excellence as an artist combined with an ability to teach is a rare gift. She conveys her passion and desire for excellence with clear instruction and humor. She is personally invested in their progress as students. We leave our weekly lessons inspired and smiling.
