Sweet Music Academy is excited to announce that we have added a new 1600 sq ft Performing Arts Center next door to our Howell location!
In addition to our private lessons, we recently expanded our space to accommodate multiple types of group workshops. Our workshops are a hands-on class in which the students develop their performance skills, repertoire, rehearsal techniques, soloing, stage presence, and other performing techniques. All students will have an opportunity to perform at the end of their workshop, in front of their family and friends. We find this experience helps give students a goal and a great sense of achievement.
