“I know you all must be wiped after the fantastic festival, but before I forget I wanted to send this email to thank you both for all of your work with our daughters. Destiny did not want to do either the evaluation or the competition – but she went up for both and faced her fears. She even attended the drum clinic and got up and played… Lisea was extremely nervous – and I saw it in her playing. She played very slowly and she messed up a note on the competition. But if you truly knew my child, the fact that she continued after her mistake and did not stop and run out of the room is our victory for the day. We were too wiped to stay until the awards ceremony – but we did not need to because we really were so pleased with their progress in music and their growth in confidence – nothing could matter more. I am sure you hear this all the time, but thank you very much for all you are doing. These are not just music lessons, but they genuinely are lessons and tools for life.” – Lisa D.

“Hi Brandon… I would like to congratulate you for a wonderful MAMTG weekend. It was everything you told us it would be and more. Both my kids had an invaluable and insightful experience.” -Mrs. Rao
MAMTG Student Music Festival
“Hello Brandon, Thank you for organizing a wonderful MAMTG 2018 event… Your colleagues and you have done an amazing job bringing so many students together and giving them a platform to perform, to learn and enjoy music in so many ways. My twins participated for the first time with MAMTG, through the Music Workshop Berwyn and they did win awards for all their performances but more than that they were so happy to experience performing under the observation of a judge and hear so many of the other participants with their unique style of performing. Hope to be there next year also at the MAMTG. Thank you for all your hard work. Thanks, Kavita M.

Music Notes’ History

In 2000, Music Notes Academy began as an in-home music lesson provider, starting with drum lessons in Bridgewater, NJ. The approach was comprehensive instruction, teaching percussion students how to play the drums, read music, learn music theory and gain proficiency in rudiments and performance techniques.

In 2006, we began teaching all instruments and offering student concerts, recitals, percussion ensembles and rock bands in Madison, NJ at The George Burroughs Auditorium. For school year ’09-’10, we launched Music Notes In Your School and we became the Purnell School’s music education provider.

In school year ’10-’11, Music Notes Academy acquired Brunswick Music Academy in East Brunswick, NJ. We then began teaching music theory, musical theater classes and workshops, developed our LittleNotes early childhood program and expanded our musical instrument sales, rentals and repairs division. We introduced Summer Nights at Music Notes, Saturday Concert Series and continued teaching Rock Bands and String Quartets. We were nominated and won SBDC’s Small Business Success Award for 2012.

Starting with the ’12-’13 school year, we became Whitehouse Prep’s music education provider where we instructed their daytime music classes. This great relationship blossomed into opening within their school and teaching private music lessons as Music Notes’ Whitehouse Station location.

In 2015, we released our Learn Today, Play Tomorrow® Student Assignment Book through backbeat Music Publishing and became the staff and producer of MAMTG’s nationwide Student Music Festival. In August 2016, we moved to our current building, which is larger and more suitable for our students and parents. As a leading music school for MAMTG, we’ve been integral in the improvements and enhancements of its student music festivals.

We continue to collaborate with local professionals and organizations in music education. We became an affiliate store for Music & Arts in April 2016 and began a partnership with Song Piano in November 2016. Our great relationship with Song Piano has led to Music Notes Academy having a Song Piano Kawai piano at our East Brunswick Academy.

For Music Notes Academy, everything we’ve done since the first music lesson has been centered and focused around a comprehensive approach to learning music. We are passionate about teaching music to students and adults, encouraging the musical arts and sharing in the benefits of a music education.
