My experience with Dr. Vera and LAAPA Mandeville has only been positive. I've taken private violin lessons most of my adult life, but I've never really enjoyed them. However, Dr. Vera and the LAAPA staff have changed that standard and set the bar so high. The highlight of my week was my lesson. Positive staff and positive energy. I am grateful to have met Dr. Vera, she has changed my outlook and experience and has made playing the violin something I truly enjoy again. Thank you!

I started taking ballet classes (age 48) in September, 2019 with Desiree, and now with Brianna, and it has been an amazing experience. The school added an adult contemporary/modern class this fall, and my experience has become even better by having this additional class with Maddie. The teachers pay attention to detail and technique, and they are very encouraging and patient. The instruction is top notch, and the classes provide a learning environment that is both comfortable and challenging. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for instruction in the performing arts.

Both of my children are enrolled and have gained a deeper appreciation and love for music. They are learning to play guitar, piano and drums. Ryan is a wonderful music teacher who is able to explain everything in a manner in which the kids are able to understand. Highly recommend!

Best Mandeville Piano & Dance Classes

What Makes Mandeville School of Music & Dance an Inspiration 

Is someone in your family showing an interest in music or dance?  Are they banging around on the piano, playing air guitar, or perhaps breaking out into spontaneous song and dance throughout the day? Then it may be time to learn more about getting started in music lessons or dance classes! Enrolling in a local studio can benefit students of all ages. Kids, teens, and adults interested in learning to play, dance, or sing often come to us as quiet and shy beginners.  Our friendly and motivating teachers have a talent for enabling students to discover their inner talent in the performing arts, which in turn improves their self-esteem, studies in school, increases confidence and focus. We may not realize the impact that learning to sing, dance, play piano, violin, guitar, or saxophone has on our children until we begin seeing positive changes in their decision making and daily activities through mental maturity. Since an unborn child's first contact with the real world is initiated through sound and their reaction received through movement, we can safely assume that music and dance are paramount in the development of the whole child. 

A Little About Us  

Our school of music and dance was first founded in 1978 in River Ridge, LA and arrived on the Northshore in Mandeville and St. Tammany Parish in 1993. For the past four decades, our mission has been to promote the love of and enable success in music, dance, performing, and creative arts for students of all ages. We are proud to have introduced the performing arts into thousands of families' lives since the inception of our music and dance studio. Our faculty consists of many fun and qualified instructors who teach using inspirational and motivational methods to provide students with the amazing opportunity to tailor their educational experience to their specific interests and goals.  

Our music and dance classes in Mandeville are available both in-person or online, and students are welcome to switch between the two options on a regular basis should one be more convenient from one week to the next.

What Makes Us Different 

While there are currently more local private music instructors and dance studios nearby today than when we began offering lessons to residents of Northshore nearly 30 year ago, the demand for award winning music and dance classes taught by top rated instructors continues to keep our mission alive. We are well aware of how challenging it can be for beginners to feel comfortable and informed when they are new to music lessons or dance classes. Choosing one school, instructor, or teaching program over another can be a daunting experience that requires substantial research. You can save a great deal of time by checking out our comprehensive beginner’s guide to getting started in music lessons or dance classes near me on our website!  Teaching music and dance is a full time occupation for our faculty and staff as we don’t hire hobbyists or have a retail line of products that detract from our commitment to excellence in education.  From the start, our only focus has been helping our students to become the best musicians, dancers, or singers possible! 

Why You Should Consider Us 

While there are many tutorials and guides online that offer music and dance courses, they will never be customized to your specific questions and goals. We provide a hands-on approach that allows both kids and adults to get real-time assistance and motivation from our faculty and staff. This will always be a superior educational experience and will ensure that every lesson is both productive and fun.  
We have over 60+ instructors to ensure that every student's musical or dance needs are individually catered to by offering specialized training and support.  

What We Offer 

With nearly 40 different musical instruments, dance, and vocal programs and styles offered, we offer both coaching (on an as needed basis) as well as regular weekly private lessons and group classes.  Quality, assurance, and guidance are what you can expect from us.
