The mission of the Sturgis Music Academy is to provide an opportunity for excellence in the pursuit of high-quality musical education, based on methods and philosophies of Mimi Zweig, Shinichi Suzuki, and Paul Rolland. This is a proven method for developing confidence, creative thinking, and a general work ethic that will assist students' musical and non-musical endeavors. The Academy will also emphasize the partnership between parents and student in dealing with the challenges of learning the violin. The students of the Academy receive group and private lessons each week, as well as performance opportunities throughout the semester. The Academy now offers cello lessons as well.
