APAM School Policy (pdf)

"I highly recommend APAM to anyone who cares to learn music the right way. The school provides professional music education with an encouraging and friendly environment. The teachers have the patience to introduce music to my seven-year-old beginner and expertise to train professionals. We benefit from their focus on kids’ personality and style also. I see my kids grow fast in confidence and musicality in APAM."  Li
