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 opening within their piano stores in Edison and Englewood, NJ.

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.
