Important Memo From Marty Fort

Dear students, I want to thank you from the amazing feedback we've gotten about our online lessons. The format has gotten rave reviews and with thousands of students affected by school closures, we've had lots of new students sign up for online music lessons with us.

To practice safe social distancing for our students, teachers, and staff, for two weeks starting Sunday March 22nd, all of our lessons will be held online. Your lesson time and day are the same. So please log on for your lessons for the next two weeks.

Our office staff will be standing by to assist you as normal Sundays 1-6pm, Monday - Thursday 9-9pm, Fridays 11-7pm, and Saturdays 10-6pm. So please do not hesitate to contact us if you need assistance with your online lessons or anything else.

I will reach out to everyone around Saturday April 4th with an update. Please check out this brief video below for more info and thank YOU for being a part of the Columbia Arts Academy®!

Also our "Cabin Fever Busters" with FREE lessons and classes for our currently enrolled students has had a great response! Be sure to join TODAY. It's accessible via the portal or by contacting the office. It's free and we're planning amazing FREE classes for you all month long!

Musical Ladder System® Achievements

The Columbia Arts Academy, Lexington School of Music, and Irmo Music Academy are the only music schools in the Midlands that give their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests.

Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder” wristbands that they can show off to their friends.

Welcome New Students!

Here are our newly enrolled students for the month of February!

Is Your Teacher Sold Out?

Many teachers have sold out. If you need a schedule change or would like to be added to a waiting list for a particular teacher, day or time, please contact any of our office staff team and they can add you to the waiting list. If you are not a student yet there are still limited lessons spots available.
