CMA Faculty and Programs

All CMA teachers have been carefully selected by the owners — Amy Immerman and Paul McCready — to offer first-rate instruction.

Some CMA teachers also offer group lessons or class lessons; some offer specialized instruction such as the Suzuki method; many are affiliated with various state and national professional organizations.


Cincinnati Music Academy offers piano teachers who speak Spanish, Japanese, Chinese (Mandarin) and Korean. Go here for information.

Suzuki programs at CMA

The world-famous Suzuki method has effectively been used for many decades to teach children how to make music. Suzuki is a listening approach. Children are first taught how to play and, later, how to read music. It's the same philosophy as teaching children to speak their native tongue. In the end, both Suzuki and traditional students can become fine musicians.

Cincinnati Music Academy is pleased to offer Suzuki programs in piano, violin, and cello. For more information about Suzuki, go here. To learn about which CMA teachers offer Suzuki instruction, go to the piano or strings pages.
