Welcome to the Ann Arbor Music Academy, where we believe that music education and community go hand in hand for student success. Our mission is to provide a supportive and engaging environment for individuals of all ages and skill levels to explore their musical passions and connect with a community of fellow musicians.
Our Director, Marla Moore, has been a professional musician and voice instructor for over a decade. With a master's degree in voice education, a love of music and a passion for mentoring and developing students Marla started the Ann Arbor Music Academy. Her goal was to create a Music school with programs and opportunities that would create a strong community of instructors and students centered around music and music education.
At the Ann Arbor Music Academy, we understand that learning music is not just about mastering an instrument or hitting the right notes. It's also about developing creativity, self-expression, confidence and a sense of belonging. That's why we focus on creating a positive and nurturing environment that fosters growth and exploration.
Our team of experienced and passionate instructors is committed to providing personalized instruction tailored to each student's individual needs and goals. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced musician looking to take your skills to the next level, we're here to help you achieve your musical aspirations.
"My daughter has been working with Marla for years as her voice coach. She has come a long way from where she was years ago with her. Marla has helped her work through her fears of singing in front of a crowd, her confidence, and her voice changes as she became a teenager. Marla's contagious personality has gone a long way with my daughter's development." - Aaron Zahn
"Marla Moore is the most wonderful voice teacher I could ask for! She is incredibly encouraging, and she gives me great feedback. I always look forward to our lessons and getting to learn from her. My singing has improved so much since I started coming to her. She is so skilled at what she does--I couldn't imagine a more talented vocal coach! You will certainly not be disappointed if you take lessons with her or just attend her school. She is so talented at teaching and is so passionate about what she does!" - Joanna Danielsen

"I took voice lessons with Marla Moore (one of the instructors) for 4 years and she helped me so much! From vocal technique, to life advice, to getting me connections for jobs, and helping me prepare for college applications she has been there encouraging me and supporting me. I'm now attending the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance at the University of Michigan and we still stay in touch. She really makes a commitment to the person each student is while helping them grow." - Renata Schmult
