Music Conservatory

The St. Cecilia Academy of Music will offer a limited number of lessons during the summer of 2022. Each instructor listed will schedule five lessons over the course of June and July with each student/family at your mutual convenience. Knowing that schedules are all over the place with camps, vacations, and other pursuits, please email the particular teacher to arrange times before registering. All students under the driving age must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

Summer registration will close on June 30th and will re-open for the Fall Semester by July 18th with updated pricing and schedules. At that time, private and group lessons will be available for all instruments and teachers, with additional group classes for high school voice with Ms. Nolan and recording studio technology with Mr. Suska.

Please be in touch with any questions you may have!

The St. Cecilia Academy Conservatory of Music continues a long tradition of excellence in music under the patronage of Saint Cecilia herself, the patroness of music. Our Conservatory of Music studios are open to elementary and high school students from across the Dominican campus and surrounding areas. Our commitment to all students and families is to provide excellent training by highly competent musicians and instructors who have studied and performed with their own instruments for decades! In addition, each teacher has pursued continuing education in the best pedagogical practices worldwide and across the centuries.

The practice of music adds joy to life. Many formal studies have shown that the study of music engages the whole brain and body while building individual confidence, personal discipline, and patience.
At SCA, we believe that we were born to make music! Psalm 98: 1-7  (excerpts) “Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things… Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music; make music to the Lord with the harp, and the sound of singing, with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn.” Though we do not at this time have any ram’s horn instructors, we as faculty, make the following commitments:
  •  To provide a joyful experience in the learning process
  •  To foster mutual respect between teachers and students
  •  To  continue our own adult learning and become ever more proficient and effective teachers
All styles—Classical, Pop, Broadway, Jazz, Liturgical, and more—will be taught in the Conservatory, with the permission of each instructor and in keeping with good pedagogical practice for each student regarding age and personal progress.
