The atmosphere and energy of the Franklin Music Academy is warm, welcoming and upbeat. This is really important for younger learners, especially younger and shy learners like our 12-year daughter, who has now been learning from co-owner and main teacher JP for over a year now. Our daughter has musically (piano) thrived under his guidance. Although she only sees JP once a week, in just a few months of starting she was playing songs that we enjoyed listening to and could sincerely compliment her on. JP’s genuine straight up enthusiasm for and skill in teaching accounts for no small part of her growth.

I rarely write reviews but I feel compelled to come here to give JP and his music school five stars! He is very professional, very knowledgeable, super nice, super funny, inspiring, encouraging, and great with kids! My son has gained so much since we switched piano teacher to JP! We love his choice of music, his unique rewarding chart, his clear homework instructions after every lesson, and even his electronic billing system! My son loves practicing piano at home now! And he recently just played piano on his school’s talent show and he impressed everyone! We feel so lucky that we have found Franklin Music Academy and JP!


The amount of progress I have made here is astounding. They were very kind and tailored to my needs as a musician, even when part of my life took a face-first nose-dive. Not only did my instructor, J.P. Ahmad, make a positive influence on my musical experience, he also made a very influential impact on my perspective in life as a whole. The instructors are professional. My overall time spent here was remarkable and my skills as a musician have skyrocketed as a whole.

Franklin Music Academy | The best little music school in Austin.

The origination of the Franklin Music Academy was based on necessity. We believe that life should be satisfying; full of meaning and purpose.

After years of careful planning we couldn't ignore our nagging desires any longer and took a risk to start a boutique home studio.

We are happy with our decision to educate kids and have no regrets.

Since inception in 2010, we have been completely committed to our student's development in music.

If you are searching for music lessons in south Austin with instructor(s) that have an amazing track record then look no more.

Our music studio provides music education through private music lessons, group music classes, and summer camps. We strive to inspire creativity and cultivate musicianship in our community.

Instructor(s) at our music school provide a fun learning environment that allows students to express themselves through many genres. 

Undeniably, our music lessons at the Franklin Music Academy have benefited kids at school and in so many ways.

Approximately half of our clients have been with us for several years because we have an established results-driven 'low-key' environment that parents love.

As a result, our music school has been recognized as one of Austin's Best Music Schools.

So, whether you want your child to enrich their life with music as a hobby or pursue music professionally, we can take you there one note at a time.
