Our Mission


Did you know.....?


  • According to local school districts, 80% of the children in the Coachella Valley live at or below the poverty level.
  • Most children receive no music education in their elementary schools. 
  • “Hands-on music education lights up both sides of children’s  brains,” increases academic abilities and develops social interaction  that  positively impact their academic abilities, education and future.


Musical Safe-house

Our mission at Marquee Academy is to put music instruments into the  hands of Coachella Valley children and to provide a “Musical Safe-House”  where children and their families can come to explore and develop their  talents – a special place where families bond and strengthen through  involvement in Music Education and the Performing Arts  



Officially what we do at Marquee Academy of Performing Arts is teach music, singing, instruments, dance and acting… What we really do is magic!

When children walk through the front door at Marquee Academy, they transform. Frowns turn to smiles. Insecurities are replaced by self-confidence. Shyness and worries disappear – as they rush in to join their musical friends.

Marquee Academy of Performing Arts provides an encouraging environment where children ages 4 to 17 can explore, discover and develop their talents. 

In addition to learning music and skills in performing arts, the processes transform students into self-confident, responsible, happier children – who meet and develop new friends based around healthy musical activities in a safe and nurturing environment. 

While watching their children develop positive life skills through musical education, parents become supportive and family bonds strengthen. In addition, parents meet other parents and create their own new support network of families and friends.

The Marquee Team is comprised of performing arts professionals and music educators who provide Year-Round Classes in Piano, Guitar, Ukulele, Violin, Drums, Singing, Acting, and Dance (Hip-Hop, Lyrical, Tap and Ballet); private lessons and personal coaching are also available. 

Performance opportunities include Recitals, Talent Shows, Plays and Musicals. Special Summer Camps, Workshops, Concerts and FREE Classes add to Marquee’s offerings – giving children access to the social and academic benefits developed through high-quality music education.

Monthly tuitions are affordable and family discounts apply. Full and partial scholarships and use of musical instruments are available for children with a financial need. Marquee Academy of Performing Arts is a 501(c)(3) non-profit in its fifth year of providing music education services to the children and families of the Coachella Valley
