Our Programs

NJAOM offers two programs:



Our Community Division offers group classes and private lessons for students ages 12+ with professional instructors in a relaxed environment to provide fundamental music education to students.

Group classes are ideal for our youngest students, who are just beginning to explore various instruments and what they are capable of doing. Our group classes include the popular Instrument Explorers, Drum Class, Intro to Jazz, Musical Theater, and our new FREE Pre-Twinkle Suzuki class! Classes run once weekly for each of the four terms during our school year.

Private lessons in our Community Division are for beginner students who are at least 12 years old and are interested in trying an instrument for the first time or are seeking to supplement their school orchestra studies in a low-key setting. Our Community Division provides for weekly 30- or 45-minute lessons on the student’s instrument of choice.


Our Academy Division focuses on developing musical talent from a young age and is geared toward beginners who are ages 3-11, as well as intermediate, advanced, and career-bound students who are dedicated to their instrument and are looking for a challenging, enriching environment.

The faculty in our Academy Division trained at top-tier conservatories and have significant experience developing young musicians’ abilities. Students receive weekly 30-, 45-, or 60-minute private lessons as well as a 30-minute virtual Music Foundations theory class and a Performance Class and/or chamber music coaching.

All students in our Academy Division perform in at least two recitals per year and also participate in our Summer Session.

Registration for the Academy Division is by invitation only and requires a meeting prior to enrolling.
