Education

Education is at the core of Westrick Music Academy. WMA excels in music education, employing models of differentiated curriculum development and delivery that other organizations strive to emulate. As part of its educational programs, WMA offers rich performance opportunities commensurate with the talent, skills, and experiences of its musicians.

Engagement

Westrick Music Academy offers a wide variety of educational and musical opportunities that reflect the diversity of its community. WMA provides programming for students of all ages, backgrounds, and ranges of commitment from those just discovering their relationship with music, to casual musicians and future music professionals.

Community

Westrick Music Academy is a supportive community of musicians and families who form bonds that can last a session, a season, or a lifetime. Through collaborations with other artists and organizations, we build relationships that empower musicians as leaders, who in turn impact the broader community.

 
WMA’s Flagship Programs also have individual missions and values.
