"An Encouraged Student is a Successful Student"
We truly believe in the above statement. Everybody can benefit from learning an instrument and everybody can learn if they are motivated. We realize that every student learns at a different pace and we will help gear your lessons with that in mind. We also believe that all students should learn about the principals of music. Each lesson will include a certain degree of music theory. By learning theory students will further develop an appreciation and understanding of all music.
In 2004, Jay Sweet opened up Sweet Music Academy in Howell, NJ. His goal was to provide quality music instruction on all instruments to students of all ages with the philosophy that, “An encouraged student is a successful student.” Many of the students trained at Sweet Music Academy have gone on to receive scholarships at top Music Universities such as: Berklee College of Music, Manhattan School of Music, The New School, Temple University, Mason Gross, and Montclair State. Several of our past students also now enjoy rewarding careers in the music business as performers and instructors.
Since its opening, Sweet Music Academy has taught over 3,000 students and continues to grow. In 2007, Sweet Music Academy added a second location in New Egypt, NJ. A third location was opened in Brick, NJ in July of 2013.
