The Fort Lee School of Music is a place where children and adults can receive all the benefits of a music education by studying with the best music teachers in Bergen County.  Students travel from Fort Lee, Edgewater, Tenafly, Palisades Park, Ridgewood, and as far as Jersey City and Piermont, NY because this unique academy forms the cultural bridge between New Jersey and the musical capital of the world, New York City.  

The Fort Lee School of Music faculty consists of professional musicians who possess a strong commitment to teaching, performing and community engagement and have been trained at some of the world’s most prestigious music conservatories including Juilliard, Mannes College, Manhattan School of Music and Yale.
