About our Staff
The staff at the Academy of Music and Drama is comprised of experienced teachers who have degrees in music or drama from accredited colleges and universities, some with advanced degrees. Our faculty has a wide and diverse range of experiences from performing with legends like Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Heath and Bill Cosby at Lincoln Center to nationally known music venues such as Sloppy Joe's In Key West. Our music teachers have composed music for television, independent films and advertising and recorded CD's of their own compositions, and our drama teachers have taught and performed at the George Street Playhouse and many venues throughout the tri-state area. Many teachers are active performers, some with over thirty years of performance experience, and many of our teachers have experience or are active as school band directors. All our teachers are experienced working with many different types of students at all levels.
Most importantly the faculty at the Academy of Music and Drama enjoys teaching in a supportive, friendly environment. Our staff enjoys sharing their knowledge with students, as well as sharing a laugh by keeping the mood light and the classes enjoyable, because our teachers know if the student isn't enjoying lessons, they will not progress. It's always positive encouragement at our studio, all the time. We believe that if a student has a bad week, there is always next week, and we will try to do better next time. This philosophy has helped make us the fastest growing music and drama studio in Monmouth county.
