Welcome to Aspire Music Academy

Welcome to Aspire Music Academy! The mission of Aspire is to provide exciting and outstanding opportunities for vocal performance and choral singing for young people in grades K-12.

The Woodbury, Minnesota location of Aspire Music Academy is hosted by the Merrill Community Arts Center, home of
Woodbury Community Theatre. 

Aspire Music Academy was founded to provide access to music instruction and performance experiences for children and young adults. At Aspire, our belief is that exposure to music and performing at an early age brings significant benefits to young people and their families, instilling a life-long love of music and the performing arts, as well as teaching poise, discipline, and cooperation as a part of a group.

All Aspire Music Academy tracks use developmentally, educationally, and performance-level appropriate music and technique to help enhance each student’s growth in the performing arts.


It is expected that all participants in Aspire Music Academy programs would return to their schools and participate in their music and theater programs, bringing leadership and outstanding skills back to the classroom to enhance their home schools’ fine arts programs.
