Hollywood Arts Academy’s mission is to offer affordable private music lessons in Pasadena, San Gabriel, San Marino, Altadena, El Monte, Arcadia and nearby cities. We offer personalized one-on-one music lessons at 2844, E. FootHill Blvd in Pasadena. Hollywood Arts Academy helps students in different musical styles : classical, pop, jazz and musical theatre. We also prepare students for Certificate Of Merit Exam and different examinations based on students’ needs. Hollywood Arts Academy offers 1 hour, 45 and 30 minute lessons. We provide one free trial lesson to decide the musical level and the instrument for new students so they can reach their full potential in music.

Our teachers use different teaching styles based on the individual needs to help students achieve their full potential in their desired instrument. Our first step is to help the students understand musical theory for any particular instrument to master the instrument from the basics. Also, we use the latest teaching methods to help students practice at their home using CDs. Hollywood Arts Academy holds annual Christmas Concert where our students can showcase their talent and get an understanding to perform in front of an audience. Lessons are offered in English, Chinese and Japanese languages. If you would like more information or to schedule your trial lesson, please give us a call or chat with us.

My two (2) kids go to this school for Piano Lessons. It’s a great school with teachers who care and they even got (ONE) of my kids to actually play correctly and she now likes playing the piano. They are strict but have real concern for the students and offer a great environment to excel. I would recommend Donna Lee and her Music School anytime. A+++++++

Laurie Villasenor

My son has been taking piano with Miss Donna since he was 7 and my daughter just started. I absolutely  love her. She is fantastic with kids and really inspires them to play. She also has a recital that gives the kids a chance to play in front of an audience. She also encourages participation in the Certificate of Merit program. I am so glad we found her and Lee Music School.
