We are dreamers and explorers, we are creators and thinkers, we are the Weatherford Music Academy - a community that is more than a school for music lessons. Of course we cover the basics and provide top quality private lessons and group guitar lessons, ukulele lessons, piano lessons, and voice lessons at our home base in Weatherford, TX -- but we strive to do so much more than that.
Learning music is a lifelong journey, and a musical instrument can be a companion in good times and bad. The ability to express yourself through music can be therapeutic, and it can also be transformative. We’ve seen it in ourselves and our students, how getting up on stage and performing can bring out a sense of relaxed and humble confidence, how it can lift people up, connect us, and create memories for years to come.
We have an amazing team of teachers and musicians working with incredibly dedicated students to achieve a level of progress that could not be achieved any other way.If you want to learn more about our program, give us a call and we can set up a tour, because once you see what we’re up to, you’ll want to be a part of it. It happens every day, we are teaching a student, and now suddenly their parents (or even grandparents) want to learn an instrument as well! So don’t be shy, send us a message and we’ll get right back to you!
We are the only school in Parker County that offers all of these popular instruments: Keyboard, Electric & Acoustic Guitar, Voice, Singing, and Ukulele, Violin, Viola, Trombone, Flute, & MORE in one location!
Our music teachers are dedicated to learning about your personal musical goals and helping you to achieve them. We have music instructors with decades of experience and masters degrees in music, instructors that teach full time at school such as Weatherford College and WISD schools, as well as instructors who have made a living through professional performing for years. We are confident that we have the right teacher to meet your music lesson needs. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and dedicated to teaching you the style of music that you want to learn in your music lesson.
Don't have an instrument? No problem! We are happy to point you in the right direction, and in many cases we can provide an instrument for your child to use in their first lesson while we help you select something that fits your needs and your budget!
We are one of the only (if not THE only) music schools in the country to offer green screen music videos for our students. Many students struggle with preparing for live performances and feel pressured or overwhelmed. Others simply have such busy schedules with basketball, soccer, gymnastics, swimming lessons, travel, and more! In this world where many performers gain an audience through video, using platforms such as Youtube, we’ve begun creating a music video experience for our students. Students can get experience becoming more comfortable on camera, and you get a high-quality audio/video performance to keep for years to come!
We are the only school in Texas that puts on Festivals for our students, and helps students to record music videos!
Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital. In April/May and December many of our students choose to perform in our biannual recitals. This past year we held our first ever festival in downtown Weatherford which featured a professional musician we hired to come and perform for our students from Austin. We make every effort to ensure our students feel like rock stars, and we pull out all the stops to make sure they have a blast being on stage! This past year we featured students on voice, guitar, and piano for performances and students had multiple opportunities to watch our incredible guest performances and be inspired by live music as well as enjoy their own performance opportunity.
We are the only music school in Parker County that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder® is a unique program that few schools have the opportunity to implement. We’ve seem immense value in this program for motivating students to be consistent in practice and attendance to ensure that you get the most out of your investment in music lessons. Therefore, we’ve taken the initiative to license this music achievement program to reward your music students for their hard work and dedication. This program will begin at our academy in Fall 2019.
We are the only music school in Parker County that offers a professional photography for their students. This is a service that our student's parents love as they all want quality photos of their children (example pictured right). Not only does it capture the excitement of your child’s journey with music lessons, but it helps build their confidence in themselves as well.
Free String change when you become a member of the academy.
One big hurdle many families face is that they will purchase a new guitar or Ukulele, and then weeks or months later a string or multiple strings will break. The guitar then ends up sitting in the closet, never to be played again. Sadly, very few guitar lessons and ukulele lessons teach this valuable skill of instrument care and maintenance. We make sure to show parents how to do this, and we even offer a FREE string change. Old guitar strings are a recipe for discouragement, as the grimy rusty strings can really hurt a new guitar student’s fingers.
The other roadblock to regular practice is having a tuned instrument. This is another area where students can struggle without proper guidance. We are currently teaching students as young as 7 years old to tune their Ukuleles, and we also teach the parents how to tune, so their instrument always sounds brand new and melodious!
Due to its central location, our school is convenient to all areas of Parker County. We are less than 15 minutes from residences in Weatherford, Hudson Oaks, Willow Park, and Aledo. We also offer our music lessons to students from Granbury, Springtown, Annetta, Brock, Peaster, Azle, Poolville, and more.
We don’t want to leave anyone out! Here is a list of all of the communities we
Many students love our group lessons because they are high-energy, dynamic, and fun. Our students often make new friends and develop duet performances together. Other students have benefitted from our semi-private small group sessions which are great for siblings or friends wanting to take music lessons together. And of course, we do have private lesson offerings for a limited number of dedicated students who want to dig even deeper into all that music has to offer! We even offer full fledged artist development services that help students to gain real-world performance experience through high quality photo and video recordings, song selection coaching, voice coaching, and coaching on how to promote yourself as an artist in 2019 and beyond

I feel like the results of my kids enrolling has been a love and a passion for music, I notice they come home and they practice, they have the best time learning and trying new songs and doing duets together…it’s a different learning technique than I’ve ever seen, my kids want to go, it’s exciting, it’s fun, it’s a stress free environment for kids to learn.
Absolutely amazing program! It's given my Deaf daughter a new look at music, and she's not stopped playing since her first camp session ended. We can't wait to come back!

Mr. Rose is truly one of the best music teachers I’ve had the privilege of knowing. We have had the opportunity to not only have him as a Uke Crazy instructor for my daughter, but also as our elementary level music teacher. My kids love Mr. Rose, and I’m always impressed by how well he can connect with the kids as well as how much he really loves the art. Highly recommend!
Phoenix manages to do an amazing job teaching the kids how to play ukulele while keeping things incredibly fun. Three of my kids have been taking lessons and I am blown away by the progress that they’ve made. Every week they look forward to their lessons and are so excited to show me what they learned when I get back in the car. I cannot recommend Uke Crazy enough!
This is an amazing program. Phoenix and Danielle go above and beyond for the kids. They are energetic and enthusiastic, and you can tell that they love what they do. This positive energy has translated into a great experience for our daughter, and we are proud to be part of the Uke Crazy family!
If you ever wanted to literally have your heart burst with joy you must try Uke Crazy. My 8 year old son has learned so many songs. He has the best time and feels so much pride when he plays. He loves to practice and loves working with Mr. Rose and Ms. O'donnell. They are so kind and caring. You or your child will have fun and learn a to play a cool instrument. Give them a try, you won't be sorry.

This is a great program and the only thing my son has wanted to stick with out of everything he has tried!!! We love Uke Crazy!!!
- Amy B.
My sons loved these classes and was excited to show me what he learned after each session.
Mr. Rose and Ms. O’Donnell are so good and so fun with the kids! It was my daughter’s first time learning a musical instrument and she is in love with learning music now!
