“Sometime around the year 2000 I got the chance to see my favorite band live and I instantly knew what I wanted to do with my life. Everything else has been a precursor to what I desperately needed in my life; music.”

Dayna Algra

Temple Music Academy constantly goes above and beyond for their students. The talent they have with instructing is nothing less than incredible. They have a way of teaching that is clear and encouraging. Temple Music Academy is such a positive, respectful and fun environment. I am so grateful to Temple Music for creating this space.

David Barbour

I am amazed at how quickly my guitar skills improved after starting lessons with DJ and at how quickly I am now able to learn new songs. DJ has a talent for understanding his student’s skill level and pushing them to play at a level beyond what they think they are capable of.
