Who are We?


At LMA we have been helping hundreds of local and military families experience the joy of making music since 2013. Our students range from age 4 through retirement and beyond.


We understand the struggles of juggling busy schedules and the fear of trying something new. We are here to reassure you that we can help you or your child get to where you want to go!

We offer private music lessons with fun and friendly instructors near downtown Leavenworth - about five minutes from the main gate of Ft. Leavenworth.

While you are here, please consider the benefits of becoming an Academy student and find out why we are Leavenworth's number one choice for in person and online music lessons.

 12 benefits of becoming an Academy Student

1. Piano, Guitar, Ukulele, Voice, Violin and Drum lessons for children and adults!


We pride ourselves on providing you the BEST music lesson experience in town! We are the only brick and mortar school to offer online registrations at your convenience. What you see is what you get.

2. Friendly and Qualified Teachers in Leavenworth.

Our music teachers are college trained or have equal performance experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities and are dedicated to teaching you the style of music that you want to learn!

3. A wide range of available lesson start times listed directly on our website.

4. Free music recital opportunities for every student and instrument! (4 Recitals/Year!)

​Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital. We host four recitals per year and we are the only brick and mortar school in Leavenworth that offers recitals.

5. Cameras in every lesson room

We are happy that we provide security cameras in each of our teaching rooms to protect our instructors and students! All of our weekly online lessons take place using private music lesson rooms. No other students have the same link as you and so no one else can interrupt or join your video link while you are having your lesson.

6. Stability for Military students

As Army brats ourselves we know how hard it is to have to form brand new relationships every few years. Most students will take lessons with the same instructor for 7 or more YEARS. We thought hard about how we could help kids like us have the same opportunities other people do. We want to make the switch to your new homes easier and so we came up with our Moving Student Program. We make taking your lesson in person or online as easy as breathing no matter which teacher you enroll with.

This way it is EASY to keep progressing and having fun with your teacher. How much more could you progress if you could meet with the same instructor every week no matter where you live - Ft Bragg or Ft Wainwright or Ft Erwin? (PS - Lessons are a lot more affordable here than most duty stations)

7. Lunch time lessons for home schoolers, retirees, college students and working professionals.

We offer lessons as early as 1 p.m. and we see many students between the hours of 1-3p.m. If you are a home school parent, retiree, college student or working professional who has a flexible schedule, take advantage of our early morning and lunch time lesson spots.

8. Student Picture Day

We are the only music school in Leavenworth that offers a free student picture day for their students.

Every Summer we host a free picture day before our recital 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! Students can bring their instruments to the photo shoot and wear whatever they like.

9. Month to Month Lessons.

The Academy does not require semester minimums for lessons. Every student here is on a month-to-month basis.​​

10. Centrally located in Leavenworth.

Due to its location, our school is convenient to all areas of Leavenworth, and we have students from Lansing, Fort Leavenworth and even Weston and Platte City, MO across the river. Close to our school, you will find great shopping and dining in downtown Leavenworth, the historic first city West of the Missouri River! 

11. A proven track record of excellence since 2013.


Visit our testimonial page to see what our students are saying. Every year, aspiring music teachers start their own studio, and a year or two later it’s closed. The Academy has a proven track record of offering quality music lessons for piano and voice in Leavenworth, Kansas year round. Our full time mission is teaching music lessons trusted by hundreds of families since we opened our doors!

12. Online system to sign up.


Message your teacher or log in to your PRIVATE video lesson rooms. No one but you and the school has access to your video room link. No one can sign in early and interrupt your lesson.
