Integrity Music Academy

                           "Building character through music."                       



      The Philosophy 

of Integrity Music Academy
When Dr. Shinichi Suzuki originally conceived of his method for teaching strings, he emphasized the importance of developing character within the student.  His goal was to improve people through the discipline of learning music.
Integrity Music Academy brings together music training and character development through a unique approach to lessons.  Using an innovative and attractive set of character materials, the IMA program offers a way to combine specific character-building teaching with the conventional private lesson setting.

Students will learn how the definition and application of personal integrity provide 
the framework for developing positive character growth in a musical setting.  Ultimately, however, the traits studied during lessons go far beyond learning an instrument.   It is the goal of IMA to help
students learn to apply these character qualities to their entire lives as they strive for both musical and moral excellence.
Our traditional music instruction is completed by the addition of specific character building tools. These ideals are 
 a lesson to us all, student, teacher, and parent alike. Becoming intimately familiar with these words, definitions and deeds has a positive effect on people for their entire lives.
