In 1977 Helen Haynes was teaching piano lessons. She was creating a policy, and decided it needed a name. So, keeping it simple, she decided on Haynes Piano Studio.
In 2005, she discovered the world of Early Childhood Music. It was a match that was meant to be. She immersed herself for the next few years in training sessions with the Musikgarten curriculum, which provides Music & Motion classes for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, culminating in a 3-year beginning piano class. This fit perfectly with her goal of providing music for all ages. However, it needed a new name. To provide continuity, and still keeping it simple, the name was changed to Haynes Music Studio.
By 2012, Haynes Music Studio was in a commercial location in Jefferson City, and growing. The building had plenty of space to expand, and a new dream was born - to fill the whole building with music! Mrs. Haynes hired new teachers to teach voice, guitar, drums, strings, and band instruments. But now, it needed a new name again - it was much bigger than Haynes Music Studio - so it became Jefferson City Music Academy!
Jefferson City Music Academy continues to deliver the original goal - to provide "Music for All Ages". Depending on the teachers we have at any given time, we offer Music & Motion classes for ages 0-9, and private lessons in piano, voice, guitar, drums, and orchestra and band instruments. It is also our dream to eventually offer a small jazz band, and small orchestra, for students to join.
And now we can't wait for you to join us! We'll help you fulfill your musical dream!
