Are we the right music school for you?
Founded in 2005, Princeton String Academy has 100 + students enrolled–and growing–and is a unique teaching environment for the following reasons:
The benefits of both a small string studio and a large music schoolDue to our size, we are able to offer both private and ensemble instruction and performance, which offers a richer and more engaging learning environment. In addition, our curriculum includes master classes with prominent visiting musicians and coaching for state and national competitions. Student recitals, both individual and ensemble, are an important part of our curriculum. We use the Suzuki teaching method https://suzukiassociation.org/, which is premised on how children first learn to speak a language by listening and repeating.
The most qualified string teaching faculty in the areaWe have four teachers so we are confident that we have the right teacher for you. All of our teachers have bachelors, masters or doctorate degrees in music performance from the best music conservatories or universities (see Staff tab). In addition, to having top credentials, they are dedicated to teaching in a fun and positive manner. (See Awards tab).
A proven track record of excellenceOur students regularly achieve concertmaster and principal violist in YOCJ and GPYO, membership in Regional and All State Orchestras, and top honors in local and national competitions, i.e., NJMTA, Carnegie Hall recitals. They play in master classes with prominent musicians, i.e., Pamela Frank, Donald McInnes. Princeton String Academy has a proven track record of private and ensemble music lessons and performance year round. Our full-time mission is teaching string music.
