If you are looking for top tier instruction full of joy and fun you should check out Pickering Creative Artist Academy. There’s nothing I love more, than my home full of music and songs from my kids. The growth they have shown in skills and confidence is amazing and keeps them looking forward to their lessons each week. We feel lucky to be a part of the Pickering family!”

Erin O – Happy Mom!


Fabulous Academy to Access and Grow in the Arts!

Amy and Michael Pickering absolutely know music, theater, entertaining, education… and they attract high quality teachers who want to share their love of music with kids ready to grow. My 12 year daughter is learning the fundamentals of performing musical theater. My 9 year old son is loving drumming and benefited from piano lessons prior, he is a musician in the making. They are both always energized after their classes. We are grateful for the Pickering team and academy!

Pickering Voices Adult Pop Choir is My Happy Place!

Being a part of the adult choir is such a positive experience! I love the all of the fun, knowledge and talent every week. I highly recommend Pickering Creative Artists Academy – their teaching staff shares their joy and enthusiasm with the students and it’s catching!

Best Part of My Daughter's Week!

Absolutely adore Pickering Creative Artist Academy! My 13 year old daughter has been taking voice and piano lessons for a little over a year, and it is still the best part of her week. When she started, we had NO idea how she would do, and she is thriving! She even got a solo in her first year of choir! Michael and Amy are the kindest, most encouraging, hard working people we know. We are so, so thankful for this AMAZING academy! I would (and do with friends and family) HIGHLY recommend.
