The Peter Dee Academy of Music‘s main objective is to develop an appreciation and enjoyment of music in all it’s students in both a formal and informal setting. Although examinations are an integral and important aspect of the study of music, they are not compulsory.

It is also unique because of its use of proven classroom materials and teaching techniques, which utilize years of collective experience, the sum of which is not only academically sound but musically practical. The Academy encourages and recognizes the need for musical participation and creative music making.
