Celebrate 2018 with music lessons at Forte Academy of the Arts– an educational benefit for growing and developing minds, as a hobby for an instrument you wish to regain, or as a new challenge in this new year. Reach your goals today by calling us at Forte Academy.
Congratulations to all of our students for a job well done at our Winter Recitals! We’re so proud of you and look forward to more upcoming performances!

We have loved seeing you grow up before our very eyes and hearing how you've progressed in your talents. Way to go Ella and Ethan!
The Power of Music
I dropped my backpack by the door, ran upstairs and sat down at the piano. I wanted a snack, but first I had to play music. As my fingers connected with the keys, the music filled the air and my thoughts untangled. I thought about my math test and an upcoming research paper. I remembered the fight with my friend and how we resolved it in the hallway. My shoulders dropped. My eyes focused on the written music, my brain lit up, and I felt relaxed. I pivoted on the bench and said, "Mom? I need to tell you about my day!"
Music has a unique ability to connect with our souls, bring peace, and untangle the most stressful day. Musicians will all agree that something amazing happens when they are making music--it's a little like magic. Kids in school get better grades when they also study music. Music lights up the creative side of the brain and allows a creative outlet that brings calm and peace to crazy schedules and filled-up calendars.
Kids who meet with their instructor once a week find a powerful mentor relationship: teaching, encouraging, leading, guiding. Encouragement is the best motivator and our teachers pour it out liberally!
Kids who perform on stage feel a sense of accomplishment and pride that will follow them throughout life. They discover how to be nervous (and a little scared) and how to get on stage and perform anyway. The sense of accomplishment is off the charts and you'll see their faces beam with pride as they exit the stage. This confidence carries into many areas of life. Students realize that nervousness can be conquered and the reward for "doing it anyway" is something to be championed!
Music is so much more than learning an instrument! It teaches a love for the arts, a connection to something extremely powerful, and a way to express thought and emotions. Music gives students confidence and a sense of accomplishment!
Parents, thank you for giving your child the gift of music! If you're a musician, I hope you're in lessons, too! There's nothing better than sitting down to make music after a full, crazy day.
Music is powerful and amazing and we are so blessed to bring incredible teachers and off-the-charts instruction to the students of North San Diego! Let's make some music!
Celebrating Student Achievement
The Musical Ladder System®
Forte Academy of the Arts is the only music school in North County that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests with the Musical Ladder System®. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder System®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends.
More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins! I love the Musical Ladder System!!!! Begin your journey today! Practice every day. Study for your upcoming challenge and earn wristbands, certificates and cool trophies!
