Who we are

The Institute Of Musical Arts (IOFMA) opened its doors in the summer of 2012, with the desire to offer anyone willing to try, the opportunity to Explore their creativity and Discover their talent in the Musical Arts.

We believe music is one of the most wonderful ways to express yourself, relieve stress and learn about different cultures. Our goal is to offer a unique atmosphere where people can learn how to play an instrument in a fun, fulfilling and rewarding way.

We strive to create a very special experience for the student through incredibly personal & warm attention, in a place where mistakes are encouraged as part of the learning process and success is measured by the individual achievement of goals rather than the stress of having to meet a pre determined expectation.

Our Mission

To make learning an instrument, an enjoyable and uplifting experience for anyone willing to try it so that through exploring their creativity, they may discover their talent.


Our Vision

- To be an institution that is recognized by its results, leadership in the industry and service to the community.
- To be the prime choice for anyone wanting to learn how to play an instrument just for fun in a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere.
- To be an institution recognized for it’s involvement in helping others in need.

We are a Faith-based institute that believes we have all been given different talents and we hope to be able to help people discover if their gift is in the Musical Arts.

Our Principles

We pride ourselves in maintaining a wholesome environment where teamwork, accountability & respect are at the top of our priorities.

We believe in the power music can have to improve anyone’s life.

We wish to instill in students the desire to use their newly acquired skill (Intermediate to advanced level) to help their community through music performances.
