 Established in 1996 in Southfield, Michigan, Axis Music Instruction Studios began as a tiny, four-studio guitar lesson business. Over the following few years, founder and Musicians Institute graduate John Antone molded what is now known as Axis Music Academy, expanding to new lesson programs, over 10 other instruments, 12 private lesson studios, a classroom and recital space, and 4 offices for administration and development.

In 2004, an academy was opened in Canton, Michigan, which houses Axis Music Institute, Michigan’s first and only licensed and certified trade school for music. Expansion in Southfield in 2010-2011 included a state-of-the-art recording studio, an even larger classroom and live stage, new technology and resources, and the introduction of several exciting new programs to your growing menu of options.!

We developed a modern, proprietary method to teach you everything you need to know to become a great musician. Our primary goal is to help you reach your own goals. While maintaining all the necessary elements of proper music education, we deliver a fun and effective learning experience by customizing the content of each lesson just for you. [learn more here]
