NWMA Mission Statement:

The New West Music Academy (NWMA) is designed to prepare musicians for a lifetime of using their gifts, both for personal enrichment and for serving the church, through private lessons and recitals taught by our gifted musicians.

NWMA Vision Statement:

To equip new and mature musicians to use music for the glory of God.

The NWMA is based on three foundations:

  1. To train musicians in the art of playing their chosen instrument and enable them to use their skills in a solo, or group setting.
  2. Through the process of learning to master a difficult instrument, every student ultimately comes to discover and stretch their own limits, not simply as musicians but as human beings.
  3. Through the vehicle of a beautiful and challenging instrument, the NWMA endeavours to guide each student we teach toward a profound sense of ability and empowerment.
