ABOUT PASADENA MUSIC ACADEMY

PASADENA MUSIC ACADEMY (formerly Modern Music School) was created in 2011 to give students and their families a fun, safe, and supportive place within their community where they could build confidence and explore their own creativity through the joy of music. 

With almost 500 students, we believe our success stems from the amazing community we’ve built here. Our team works hard everyday to create a supportive and energetic environment where students are excited to arrive and learn something new. 

Currently, we offer private music lessons to students of all ages and experience levels in piano, guitar, voice, drums, bass, DJ, music production, ukulele, violin, viola, trombone, saxophone, trumpet, flute, clarinet and early childhood music classes.

Join our amazing community today and discover new inspiration and a passion for making music that will last a lifetime.

FREE BAND WORKSHOPS

Throughout the year we offer a free band workshop to all our students called “Tomorrow’s Rockstars”. This unique program aims to give students the experience of playing in a band with their fellow aspiring musicians, a crucial element of their musical education. This workshop has been a complete success with both students and their families. Our students have a blast playing songs they love and building friendships with their bandmates. Most importantly, we see their confidence and motivation grow immensely through this special program. Many of our beginner students participate after only a few months of lessons.

LEVEL UP MUSIC ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM

At Modern Music School Pasadena, we use a system of certificates, wristbands, and stickers to track student growth from level 1 to 10, similar to the belts in a martial arts program. This structured, nationally-recognized approach, is free and optional for all our students. Giving students a fun, tangible way to mark their success does wonders to motivate them to practice their instrument and push their limits.

THE SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES IS OUR TOP PRIORITY

We take multiple steps to ensure the safety of our students and families. Our entire staff and teaching faculty is background checked. All of our teaching rooms have security cameras and video footage is stored for two months. We also have an open door policy, meaning you’re welcome to join your child’s lesson at any time. And all of our rooms have observation windows (with the exception of our drum rooms, due to sound proofing).

PICTURE DAY

Every year we host a free picture day with a professional photographer. This is a service that parents love. Students can bring their instruments to the photo shoot and wear whatever they like. Our adult students are welcome too!
