About Santa Teresa Academy of Music

Santa Teresa Academy of Music is San Jose's premier arts education powerhouse, offering private music lessons in piano, guitar, voice, violin, drums and group dance classes in ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop and more! Students travel from all over the San Jose area to take lessons with our instructors. We offer lessons for all ages and styles and all skill levels: Beginners and advanced students are welcome!

There are many options for you to take - piano, guitar, voice, drums, and violin lessons or ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop and intro to dance.  While you are here researching the best school for you, please consider the benefits of becoming an Academy student and find out why we are the right choice for music lessons and dance classes.


Why Choose Us?

Music and Dance in one location, saving you time & money.

This saves our students time and money, as one family can take multiple programs on the same day. Other studios offer only music lessons or only dance classes, but we are the only one in the area to offer both!  

Music lessons: Guitar, Piano, Voice, Violin, Drum, and Ukulele! Dance classes: Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap and Parent and Tot.

Qualified teaching faculty who are dedicated to helping your child learn.

We desire to inspire our students and develop in them the love of music and dance. We do this through teachers and music that our students love.  

In addition to their credentials, our music and dance teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and are dedicated to teaching your student the dance or music style that they want to learn.

A wide range of dance class and music lesson times available to fit your busy schedule.

Recitals so that your family & friends can share in your musical or dance journey.

Every May and November, our music students have the option of performing in our recitals.

While music students are not required to perform, many choose to.  Dance students participate in our end of year dance recital held in June.

Students of all ages are welcome!

It doesn't matter if you have a young child who's brand new to music and dance, or if you're a grandparent wanting to revisit those piano lessons that you took in grade school, our instructors are ready to create a unique program to fit your needs.

Professionally sound proofed music and dance studios.

Our beautifully designed facility was specifically planned with music lessons and dance classes in mind.  Our music lessons take place in sound dampened music rooms with viewing windows in every door. Our dance studio contains floating hardwood dance floors appropriate for Ballet, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Tap and Intro to Dance.

Certificates, wristbands, and trophies to celebrate musical achievement

We are the only music school in the area that gives their music students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests.

Professional office staff to serve you.

Our goal is to provide you with the best customer service possible. Many music studio desks are staffed by the teacher/owner or more commonly an answering machine. We have full-time office coverage at the front desk to assist our clients quickly and professionally during all music and dance lessons. Excellent customer service is what sets us apart!

Picture day not only for our dance students, but for our music students as well!

Every year we host a picture day with a professional photographer. This is a service that our student's parents love as they all want quality photos of their children.  Adults are welcome too!  Music students can bring their instruments to the photo s hoot and wear whatever they like. Dance students wear their recital costume.

Flexible enrollment periods.

Unlike other programs, we do not require semester minimums for lessons. All our lessons are month-to-month.
You can begin anytime!
To stop lessons, we just need a 30 day notice on the 1st of the month.
