Marquee Academy of Performing Arts

Year-Round Music & Performing Arts Education for Coachella Valley Children (2017-2018, 2016-2017)

Marquee Academy of Performing Arts provides music education, a performance venue, and an encouraging environment where children of all ages can explore and develop their talents. Most Marquee Academy students participate in two or three different classes per week, year-round, after-school and on week-ends – and during special Summer Camps:

• Instrument Lessons – Piano, Violin, Guitar, Ukulele & Drums. (Small group classes develop skills in music notation, ensemble, reading music, theory & rhythm.)
• Dance – Exploration and movement/motion expression through Hip-Hop, Ballet, Tap & Lyrical
• Singing – Chorus and individual Vocal Development (with and without electronics & mics)
• Theater Arts – Classes in acting & auditioning plus participation in Productions as performers and crew, back-stage and front-of-house.
• Kindermusik® – Early childhood development music classes, ages 1 month to six years
• Mentoring & Workshops – Presented by Industry Professionals; for students and families

Entering its fifth year, Marquee Academy has brought together an experienced teaching team of music professionals with global performing arts and industry experience – many of whom also have taught in our local school districts. Located in Palm Springs at 441 S. Palm Canyon Drive, Marquee Academy students come from every city in the Coachella Valley and as far away as Yucca Valley. Unique teaching methods, small-group classes, and one-on-one coaching engage students – creating an atmosphere of fun and camaraderie, empowering them with life-long skills and joy that only music and performing arts bring to a child’s life.
