The Academy of Music Northwest has been the leading regional pre-college classical music school since 1997, providing rigorous college-prep music education and performance opportunities for gifted young artists between the ages of 4-18 for all instrumentalists, singers, composers, and conductors.
In 2010 our Children's Program for ages 4-10 has been enhanced.New co-directors are Reiko Ito and Louise (Lou) Bush. While maintaining our high level of beginning music instruction, the program incorporates Dalcroze Eurhythmics, a method that emphasizes movement, rhythm, singing, improvisation, creativity, and simple composition in a playful atmosphere while introducing and expanding music fundamentals.
The Pre-College Program for ages 11-18 has also been expanded to include important electives.
New families are encouraged to visit classes in Bellevue on Saturdays. Staff will be happy to answer questions. Applications can be sent at any time from our web site http://www.amnw.org
