Axis Music Foundation (AMF)

2/1/13 Article about our Foundation

From a very young age children are exposed to music on many levels. Music is a form of communication and expression that children have learned over the decades from banging on pots and pans in the kitchen, traditional nursery rhymes to modern day children’s musicals and sing-a-longs. At Axis Music Academy, students learn the fundamental concepts of music, theory, reading, vocabulary, technique AND most of all have TONS of FUN along the way.

ImageAxis Music Foundation is a non profit foundation founded in the Spring of 2012 with the intention of delivering music education, instruments and technology to families and schools that have been suffering from the extensive cutbacks that music and the arts have endured over the years.

As a family-owned and -operated organization, Axis Music is rooted in the mission and guiding principles established by its founder, John Antone. Together with the staff and knowledgeable instructors, the company boldly and successfully leads the oft-overlooked music education industry in terms of technical innovation, program diversity and quality for every one of its students.

“Axis believes that children entering their musical journey for the first time, aspiring musicians, recreational music-makers and everyone in between deserves the right to take advantage of the benefits that music education provides.”

– John Antone
