The Music Studio, located on Central Ave in Albany, is the leading music school for children in the Capital Region. Visit to learn more or call 459-7799 today!

The Capital Region's music school of choice for 40 years!

If your child is aged 4-7, he or she is ready to enroll in our celebrated core program: The Foundation. We accept new students each fall. The 2016-2017 school year is now underway but not to worry - there is still opportunity to experience our classes! At various times throughout the year,  we offer short term classes for young children and the summer months at The Music Studio are jam packed with camps, classes, performances and more! Stay tuned for annoucements on our upcoming programming opportunities.

Typically a four-year program (shorter for older children), The Foundation is built on small-group classes that meet once a week during the school year. Children are grouped acccoring to age in classes of no more than eight. The first half of The Foundation Program is Music Fundamentals, which focuses on developing a wide range of musical skills and knowledge, including piano playing. Students then proceed to Creative Keyboard, which continues to use games and group activities to teach musical concepts, but increases the focus on piano instruction.

If your child is younger than four, or not yet ready for a school-year committment, we also offer short term classes for young children.
