Winner of More Awards Than Any Other

Music School in the Midlands!


Third Location!

Irmo Music Academy opens on Lake Murray Blvd!

We’re very excited to be in Irmo. it’s an addition we’ve wanted to make for years. So many of our teachers and clients live in Irmo so it was a natural fit.

The new building is amazing with 10 large teaching rooms, a huge lobby, plenty of parking and a really modern upscale space for teaching lessons. It’s going to be a great addition to the Irmo fine arts scene. 

~ Director Marty Fort

Musical Ladder Achievements

The Columbia Arts Academy and Lexington School of Music are the only music schools in the Midlands that give their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests. 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” 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!

Congratulations to Voice Lesson Student Prisha for earning her Rock Star (One Year) Wristband! She studies with instructor Stephanie.

Congratulations to Voice Lesson Student Skylar for earning her Master (three year) Wristband! She studies with instructor Heather.

Congratulations to Piano Lesson Student Trenton for earning his Master (Three Year) Wristband! He studies with instructor Becky.

Congratulations to Drum Lesson Student Jaden for earning his Prodigy Wristband! He studies with instructor Will.
