My son absolutely loves playing drums and Eric does a great job of bringing the inner rock star out of him! ;o) Times are tough during this pandemic and his weekly lesson is definitely something he looks forward to!

"For some one my age to be able to connect with a teacher who is old enough to be my son and make me feel like I’m a person who can learn no matter what age is awesome. Nolan is so knowledgeable and encouraging and I couldn’t ask for any better."

" Our two youngest daughters have always been homeschoolers, and have a very busy competitive dance schedule five to six days a week. They have wanted to take instrument lessons, but to find a time that works with their dance schedule wasn’t easy. Especially to have them both scheduled at the same time ! Eric for drums and Nolan for ukulele , both provide both our daughters with the tools to learn, have fun, become educated in more than just how to play said instruments, but also to be confident in a new activity for them. Through both of their encouragement, and patient, thorough way of teaching that works for each of our daughters , they have both come to love music even more and look forward to the day when they can possibly pursue another ! Thank you for laying a solid foundation and building them both up! "

I began taking lessons in Oct 2019. I was unsure of my abilities. The staff at Fall River Arts Academy encouraged me with friendly smiles and positive greetings every lesson. I started out playing violin. Six weeks later I and decided to try the viola. Attracted by the alto tones of the viola I moved forward with my lessons with the support of my instructor Katherine. Today, Dec 15, 2019 was my first recital. I performed better than I expected. Beautiful music is within my grasp. I am surrounded by encouragement and its wonderful !
There are so many talented people here. You never know what you can do until you try ! The smiles and applause will embrace your soul ❤

We have enjoyed our time at the Fall River Arts Academy so much! Our kids have fallen in love with piano, large in part because of their teachers, Giulia and John. We are so grateful for the love of music they have instilled in our kids!

Fall River Arts Academy provides friendly and professional music lessons. The owners are very dedicated and the staff/teachers are very pleasant, caring, and experienced. FRAA is a great place to learn and grow.

My 4 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Guilia for only a short 3 months without ever doing anything like this previously. At first it seemed it would be a bit too much for her but with great teaching, persistence and her love of music things turned around quickly. So quickly in fact that she was able to perform at today's recital in a room full of people singing a song off the top of her head for over 3 minutes without missing a beat and it's all thanks to the staff. We are beyond happy for how things are going and look forward to the future.

Best music school hands down! It is not just a music school for my son it is a place where he learns confidence and teamwork. They have helped him boost his self-esteem and make him feel like part of a family. They really care about the children and everyone is so patient and takes the time to say hello and ask how you are with a smile. We like it there so much that after he began lessons with the bass guitar he started taking voice lessons and plays in one of their bands. A+ school!!

My daughter Ariya has been taking lessons for 3 months and absolutely loves it. She just did her very first recital and I'm so proud of how well she did. They also had a professional photographer to take the kids picture after they perform. Thank you Mrs.Guilia and Fall River Arts Academy for everything!

I wanted to thank you for giving your students the opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall. The confidence you are building in these children, young adults, and old people, like me, is priceless.
Also, it has been studied, musicians are very disciplined. Students carry that discipline and attention to detail, into their general study habits.
On a personal note, you've given me something to work towards. I am unable to do most of my own old hobbies now. Voice lessons give me something to look forward to each week.
Your staff is amazing. You treat your students like family. I love being a part of it.
