Miller Music Academy is a culmination of musical experience that has evolved over a lifetime of involvement with young children. Miller Music Academy’s “Art City Music” curriculum is nationally accredited and offers age appropriate classes that emphasize total musicianship.
This program guides children from their first musical experience through their development into being accomplished musicians. We are excited to bring this program to Middle Tennessee.
