“We’ve doubled our size from our previous facility, which allows for a better music lesson experience and  plenty of social distancing, everybody’s got to come and see this place,” says academy director John  Dewey. Dewey also says he’s very excited for the prize drawing, which includes an electric guitar, electric  keyboard, a karaoke machine and the grand prize of an entire year of free music lessons. The community  is also in for a real treat to hear a rare live performance by Jacob Moran. “Jacob has the voice of one of  god’s angels, you’ve got to hear him sing,” according to Dewey. 

Okemos Music Academy has been teaching the greater Lansing community “the music you want to  learn” since 2000. “We were planning a big 20-year anniversary, but that was cancelled, so instead we’re  celebrating 22 years in 2022 with a beautiful new facility and a big grand opening party”, says Dewey. 

The academy is open seven days a week and has 25 fully background checked professional teachers on  various instruments which makes it easy to find a lesson and time to fit busy schedules. To sign up for  summer lessons just call or text (517) 664-1110, visit, or register in  person or at the grand opening celebration.
