More about the ULM Preparatory Academy of Music:

The Preparatory Academy of Music is an enrichment program specifically developed to provide the highest quality of musical training for young artists. It is a balanced performance-based program designed to educate the whole child.

The mission is to complement the established music education programs of the northeast Louisiana region through the coordination and cooperation of artists/teachers of the Monroe/West Monroe area. The program is centered on three foundations of musical training: performance, theory and chamber music. Through a balanced integration of these three foundations and with the involvement of parent-student-teacher interaction, this curriculum encourages a life-long appreciation for and support of music.

Currently, instruction is offered for strings, with emphasis on the Suzuki method, woodwinds, brass, percussion and piano. Music theory and an early childhood music class are also provided through the academy.
