Why is the Music Academy of WNC the #1 Choice, BEST Value, and LARGEST Music School in Hendersonville, North Carolina? Here are three reasons:

1. Our regular tuition rates start at $100.00 per month for weekly, 30-minute lessons. Some area music schools charge upwards of $125.00 for the same thing and regularly discount down to our every day rates for promotional purposes. We believe in giving our students fair, high-value tuition rates every day of the week without the promotional gimmicks.

2. All Music Academy faculty members have decades of teaching experience at the private studio, public/private school, or college/university levels. In fact, eight out of eleven (72%) hold a Master’s Degree or greater in their field of study (more than any other private music school in Henderson County). In addition to their teaching credentials, our faculty members have warm personalities, are extremely friendly, and dedicated to teaching the style of music you want to learn in your music lessons.

3. We serve over 200 students weekly for private music lessons, ensembles, and music classes (more than ANY private music school in Hendersonville). We have served thousands of families since 1997.

REMEMBERING LEO FENDER: On this day, March 21st, in 1991, Leo Fender, died from Parkinson's disease. Clarence Leonidas "Leo" Fender was an American inventor who founded Fender Electric Instrument Manufacturing Company, or "Fender" for short. In January 1965, he sold the company to CBS and later founded two other musical instrument companies, Music Man and G&L Musical Instruments.

The guitars, bass guitars, and amplifiers he designed from the 1940s on are still relevant: the Fender Telecaster (1950) was the first mass-produced solid-body electric guitar; the Fender Stratocaster (1954) is among the world's most iconic electric guitars; the Fender Precision Bass (1951) set the standard for electric bass guitars, and the Fender Bassman amplifier, popular enough in its own right, became the basis for later amplifiers (notably by Marshall and Mesa Boogie) that dominated rock and roll music. Leo Fender was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992 - a unique achievement given that he never learned to play the instruments that he made a career of building.
