San Diego Performance Academy located in Santee is a premier music school.  We have just recently began a violin program at SDPA.  So now we teach singing, guitar, violin, drums, piano,  acting AND stage performance. We teach all ages and have group classes for guitar, acting, and singing and a pre-K music class for children 6 and under.

sdpafairtwinguitarOur studio is also different as we offer performance training and our students get an opportunity to perform on stage at various events throughout the year.

Our exclusive Performance Program teaches a student how to perform on stage as a solo act or can be joined with other students to create a duo or even a band.  Through the year they get many opportunities to perform live on stage at many venues throughout San Diego County.    With this technique, we are proud to say that, “we take students from the lesson room to the stage,” developing both their confidence and performance skills with programs designed for all levels.
