Murrieta Academy of Music and Performing Arts school submitted the following news release:
January 2014 marks the 10 –year anniversary for this Murrieta Music and Performing Arts school.
“We opened the doors on the 9th of January, 2004. The academy rode the wave of the Inland Empire housing boom and survived the crash that hit in 2008, and plan to keep on training musicians and performers for at least another 10 years, ” said Larry Stuppy, Academy Director.
During that time the academy has taught thousands of students, had over a hundred concerts, recitals, and theatrical productions.
“Having the students perform regularly is something that really sets us apart from many other music schools or teachers. When it gets down to it, music has to be shared to be appreciated and we want our students to have the opportunity to share their music and acting talents as much as possible. Some students have gone on to further success including a student that won the Glee Project, and others that are playing music and getting professional acting gigs. Still, sometimes the real successes are not necessarily the ones that become professionals, but instead is the student that doesn’t do that well in school or sports, and finds in music or acting a way that he or she can grow and express his or her unique talents,” said Stuppy.
To celebrate its 10-year anniversary, the academy is stepping up by giving 10 people a scholarship to any of its 3-month music or theatre group courses. They are giving away 1 scholarship per month for 10 consecutive months. All that anyone needs to do for a chance is go to the academy website, “academyofmusik.com” and fill out an entry form. They offer group classes for guitar, piano, musical theatre, drama, drums, and rock band.
The academy is located near Toys R Us in the Murrieta Town Center on the northeast corner of Murrieta Hot Springs Road and the 215 freeway in Murrieta.
