For home or cyber schoolers as well as adults, KMAC can be the key to a well-rounded musical education.


Vision Statement:  The Keystone Musical Arts Center believes that music enhances every stage of life, and that everyone who pursues music, whether as a profession or as a hobby, should have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential.


Mission Statement:  We unite with the community by offering diverse, high quality musical arts experiences which inspire, enrich and advance musicianship for students of all ages and skill levels.

We operate in an environment that emphasizes both classical and contemporary fundamentals, and nurtures self-expression with an enthusiastic passion for all music.
