Franklin Music Academy | 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 Austin music school provides music education through private music lessons, group music classes, year-round classes, and summer camps. We strive to inspire creativity and cultivate musicianship in our community. Students at the Franklin Music Academy drive from all over Austin for music lessons at our studio because they like the attention their child gets with us. 

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 in school and in so many other ways including increased confidence and self-esteem. 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 by more than the Austin Chronicle.

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.
