Tampa Bay Music Academy

Due to the recent Hillsborough County Mask Ordinance, all TBMA students, staff, and guests are required to wear a face covering when entering or exiting our facility (details here). We are happy to continue offering lessons safely in-person at our Lutz facility, as well as virtually online. We look forward to seeing you in the classroom, or online, very soon.

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.
