Fresno Music Academy Ribbon Cutting

Fresno Music Academy & Arts Grows, North

The Fresno Chamber of Commerce and Clovis Chamber of Commerce welcomed Fresno Music Academy & Arts’ second location in North Fresno.

Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting

Fresno Music Academy & Arts grows, North! The Ribbon Cutting brought out both the Fresno Chamber of Commerce and Clovis Chamber of Commerce, friends, media, and potential students. The Fresno Chamber of Commerce presented owners Debbi Ruud and John Alden with their new membership plaque and certificate of recognition. 

Since both Chambers were in attendance FMAA got to cut the ribbon twice! “This is an exciting time in the life of Fresno Music Academy & Arts,” Ruud said after she cut the second ribbon.

What is Fresno Music Academy & Arts?

The award-winning music school has been in Fresno since 1998 and in Fresno’s Tower District since 2008. Originally named “The Voice Shop”, they renamed themselves Fresno Music Academy & Arts, but didn’t miss a beat when it came to sharing the love and knowledge of music. Over 400 lessons are taught every week to students from Fresno, Clovis, Sanger, Reedley, Madera and other surrounding communities. 

The Academy delivers lessons in piano, voice, violin, guitar, drums, ukulele and more. Available at both locations is the early childhood music program, Music FunTime. Whether you are a parent who wants their child to benefit from lessons or an adult who wants to learn anew, FMAA is the perfect choice.
