Cambridge Arts Academy is ready to help you accomplish your musical goals! We offer private lessons for guitar, bass, drums, piano, voice, and saxophone/woodwinds.

In addition to private lessons, our Acoustic Vibes recital series is a FREE and fun event we hold at least 4 times per year for any of our students who would like to get real, live performance experiences with a professional backing band in front of a live audience. To sign up, just let the front desk know what song(s) you would like to perform, what instruments are needed for the backing band, and (if applicable) what recording you are using as a reference!

Individual teachers also schedule periodic formal recitals & masterclasses for advanced students.

Aaron is an inspiring musician/teacher. He is always accommodating in his schedule and a burning player. I highly recommend him for woodwind or piano lessons.

Voice Lessons at Cambridge Arts Academy are so much fun. I am very comfortable with my instructor and always feel supported in my pursuit of performing!

I took guitar lessons, and found my teacher to be on time, professional, and able to answer my questions and to carefully guide my learning. Everyone should know that they now have a brand new space which is much bigger and has central AC and even a small performance hall. Great school for the East Cambridge community!
