Rocky Mountain Academy of Music exists to promote and encourage music in all its forms. We aim to make learning music fun and exciting. Our instructors are guided by three primary goals:
1. Make sure each student has fun
It is our mission to ensure that each student has fun and forms positive associations with music. This helps encourage long term interest, driving them to reach for their goals
2. Teach music fundamentals
Having a good understanding about the music fundamentals will ensure that musical training will transfer to different styles of music, and allow skills that build on each other as students develop and adapt as their goals, interests, or instruments change.
3. Help students learn the music that they want to learn
Allowing the students to choose their own paths helps to encourage long term goals, discipline, and commitment. Music can be a lifelong passion and Rocky Mountain Academy of Music seeks to encourage our students to learn, explore, appreciate, and find what notes strike a chord within them.
