Musicians, their tastes, and their performance styles come in a wonderful and colorful array. And we want to ensure you find the perfect match to reach your musical goals. That’s why we employ a diverse staff of educators, specializing in a wide variety of teaching styles.


With an in-house arcade, full-service salon, gourmet café, and more, students and their families will enjoy a fun, relaxed atmosphere when they visit the Sweetwater Academy of Music & Technology.


We love music, but it’s people that are our passion. From the minute you enter our doors, you’ll experience our legendary customer service with a personal touch that extends throughout the whole company.


Music inspires everyone. That’s why it’s never too early or too late to pick up a new instrument or learn a new musical skill. We even offer our Tiny Musicians program, helping spark the creativity in your baby or toddler. Are you already a musician who would like to brush up after some time off? Perfect! We’d love to see you, too. The true beauty of music is that it appeals to everyone. And there’s no better way to bring the joy of melody into your life than to learn to play or sing today.

  • During my time with the Academy, my experiences have been overwhelmingly positive, and I have been learning to meet my goals and also picking up new, unexpected ideas and directions. Each of my instructors have been positive, kind, professional, shown proficiency with their approach to music instruction, and have exemplified the outstanding reputation for which Sweetwater is known. I am thrilled to continue my studies with the Academy.

  • The Academy staff are absolutely wonderful! We are treated like family and look forward to our lessons each week. The front desk staff are so helpful in working with schedules, and the instructors are highly qualified and make learning fun. There are frequent opportunities for students to showcase their talents. The Sweetwater Academy is a Fort Wayne gem!

  • The Academy front desk staff did a great job matching our son with the best instructor for him. It has been a great experience not only for our son but for us as well. His talent and love for playing the drums has grown due to performing multiple times in the All Academy Showcase. The support and encouragement from the staff is awesome!

  • My son has been attending for 7 years. The opportunities that have come his way are priceless. Rock Camp: Best summer camp a school aged musician could ask for! Build a Band: His band has come so far in the year they have been together, it is unreal. If you close your eyes you’d never guess they are 13 year olds.

  • My son has been a student at the academy for several years and we have no plans of stopping anytime soon. Kenny and Jamie are incredible with my son and I have only seen him grow in his musicianship. I can’t say enough about how amazing the academy is. I would give this more than ten stars over and over again!

    Niki Emrick, Academy Parent
  • Bringing our students to Sweetwater is a highlight of our week— from our tradition of starting and ending each visit on the spiral slide, to the arcade games that occupy our youngest during lessons, to the trio of smiling faces at the front desk, we love Sweetwater Academy of Music and would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone seeking musical instruction in Fort Wayne, IN
