Welcome to the State Street Academy of Music

SSA offers private lessons in piano, voice, stringed instruments, woodwinds, guitar and percussion, as well as two levels of chamber ensemble.  Individual lessons allow many students to progress quickly and can enhance their ensemble participation in the school music programs.  Our chamber ensembles give our string students entry-level and advanced students that ability to participate in an ensemble with additional performing opportunities.


SSA offers ample scholarship funds awarded by need so that all musically talented children in the Harrisburg area have equal access to the kind of tutoring and musical nurturing that only a true music academy can provide. 


SSA brings together the art of music and its appreciation and mastery through the emerging talents of our young people to help make ours an ever-more vibrant, diverse and culturally aware community.
