Learn more about our student’s experiences at LAAPA.COM

Here’s what our Parents are Saying:

“As a piano student at LAAPA in the 1980’s and early 1990’s I realized what a gift it was to learn an instrument. I wouldn’t be where I am today without music lessons and to have the special experiences as a student at this school. These positive experiences became such an important part of me that I felt that I had to share my experience with my own daughter. My daughter Sarah loves to sing. So, I enrolled her in summer music camp four years ago and she had such fun that she wanted to take voice lessons. We were so fortunate to get Ms. Katarina as her teacher because she encourages her students to learn what inspires them to be creative and to not be afraid to perform and love to sing and play. Your child has the ability to be an excellent musical talent but it’s rare to have a teacher and an institution like LAAPA to foster that ability.” ~ Ben Anderson Other LAAPA Schools

My daughter has been taking voice lessons at LAAPA for two years. She loves going to class and her teachers are extremely professional, engaging, and make it fun to learn. I’ve seen my daughter really find her voice and learn how to feel confident on stage. She now auditions for drama roles in her school plays, and recently received a role in the ensemble for a JPAS production. All of the administrators at the front desk are very patient and helpful. Their phone etiquette is extraordinary!!! I’ve seen it get quite busy in the lobby, and when someone calls, the administrator is super polite. We’ve enjoyed the school so much that we recently added tap classes as well. We have a wonderful relationship with the school, the teachers and feel that everyone supports the students in doing their best. — Michelle Silva
