10 benefits of becoming a Manasquan Music Student:

1. Not just one on one lessons MMA has group lessons, band lessons and performance opportunities.

Manasquan Music Academy provides one on one lessons for individuals to get total undivided attention from their instructor in a lesson that is specific to the students needs. However, students that are proficient enough at their respective instruments also get a unique opportunity to play with other students their age and skill level to be a real musician in a real band. We also have our Jazz House band for students at a much higher level of proficiency to work on jazz standards, modal interchanges and improvisation. Our Vocal Stars Competition Team is for singers of all ages looking to not just perform in a group, but compete in regional and national competitions against other vocal teams. Throughout the year, we also host a variety of special group programs such as Little Mozarts, Adult Group Piano, Bass Camp, Group Guitar, Introduction to Digital Audio and more!

2. Over 25 qualified instructors- Currently performing locally and nationally, public school music teacher, church music directors, etc.

Manasquan Music Academy has over 25 different instructors who come from all different musical backgrounds. They all have studied at prestigious universities such as Berklee School of Music, Rutgers University, Rowan College, Kutztown University, Monmouth University and more. Many have been actively gigging, and are even former music directors of local school systems. There is no kind of student our faculty hasn’t worked with, so you are guaranteed to have your needs met in a totally professional manner.

3. Proven track record since 2014

Manasquan Music Academy has been open since 2014. Since then, we have provided excellent musical opportunities to the residents of the surrounding Manasquan area and have high hopes to continue its work into the future. Manasquan Music Academy has certainly faced its fair shares of trials and tribulations, such as a pandemic, but has prevailed to continue serving its community by offering quality music lessons.

4. A comfortable parents lounge for our families.

Waiting for your child’s lesson to get out? Have a gap in between lessons? Don’t fret! Our newly remodeled lounge has all you need! Enjoy some snacks, water, free coffee and jam out to some music with other Manasquan Music Academy friends while you wait.

5. Recital and performance opportunities

Manasquan Music Academy is proud to consistently schedule performance opportunities for its students. All of our students are guaranteed a performance in our June recital. We also schedule showcase events for our rock bands which take place every 3 months. Jazz House and Vocal stars are welcome to perform at these events, and Vocal Stars get the opportunity to compete against other music programs from around the area! There are also events throughout the year, particularly in the summer and around the holiday season where we partner with local municipalities to have Manasquan Music Academy students perform at their events.

6. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff.

While our qualified teachers are the ones working directly with the students, our staff at the front desk does all of the communication between Manasquan Music Academy and its clientele of families. The front desk staff plays an integral role in keeping all aspects of the Academy organized, such as scheduling, billing and building new programs, but most importantly, sustaining a fun and positive culture that fosters our student’s musical inclinations.

7. Referral program

Our referral program is our way of saying, THANK YOU! Refer a friend, a neighbor, your classmates, anyone- to MMA and you’ll receive a $25.00 gift card to either Jersey Mikes or Amazon. The strongest factor as to why Manasquan Music Academy continues to grow is word of mouth from its students, past and present. Because of this, we want to show our gratitude!

8. Flexible scheduling for all

Whenever we look to schedule lessons with our students, we always ask them what day and time works best for them first, and then find them the right instructor. We understand that schedules change rather quickly, and with appropriate notice, we can always accommodate.

9. Month to month lessons

The Academy does not require semester minimums for lessons. Every student here is on a month-to-month basis.

10. Located in the downtown Manasquan area.

MMA sits comfortably in beautiful downtown Manasquan along with its lively entertainment district, restaurants and many local shops and businesses.

Technologically Advanced Facilities

Our students enjoy over 3,000 sq. ft. of MMAs’s most advanced music lesson rooms. Each studio is soundproofed and stocked with everything our students need, from pianos, keyboards and full drum kits with pads to amps and stereos. Parents can sit in on their child’s lesson, watch through large observation windows, or relax in our spacious and comfortable parent’s lounge with WiFi, magazines, toys for kids and bottled water.


Our Students love performing on the Jersey Shore's Biggest Stages.

MMA has year round events for all MMA students to perform, giving parents an opportunity to see how their child is progressing.
