Tampa Bay Music Academy

Due to the social distancing requirements caused by the Covid-19 coronavirus, all TBMA lessons are currently being taught online.  When we are able to safely resume classes at our facility, students will have the option to continue with online lessons, or meet in person at our school in Lutz, Florida.  

Music with no age limit.

It’s never too late to fall in love with music – for the first time or all over again. Here at Tampa Bay Music Academy, there’s something for everyone, no matter your age. We have music lessons that fit nearly all of your musical needs and your interests – for the preschool, high school or college student, as well as the young professional, career adult, or retiree. So, what are you waiting for? Sign up for piano, guitar, saxophone, voice, violin, viola, cello, flute or drum lessons today!

Your Weekly Lesson Appointment Can Be Scheduled Mon. – Sat.

An exceptional experience.

As a trusted source for music instruction for over 20 years, Director John Tracy and his team of talented teachers are proud to offer a music academy to the Tampa, Florida community that has a reputation for an uncompromising commitment to excellence and special care taken for every student. We remain absolutely committed to providing an outstanding enrollment experience beyond any other in the region.


Most of our students come from the Tampa Bay communities of Odessa, Lutz, Citrus Park, Westchase, and Land O’ Lakes, but we also have many who travel from other parts of the Tampa Florida area, like New Port Richey, Trinity, Tarpon Springs, Oldsmar, Carrollwood, and South Tampa. Most of our beginner students take a 30 minute private piano, violin, or guitar lesson, once each week, from one of our degreed, experienced teachers, but we also have beginner, intermediate and advanced students taking private cello, saxophone, viola, voice, and drum lessons.
