Eastern Washington Academy of Music

About Us

EWAM is dedicated to the goal of providing the student musician with rewarding classical music experiences.  We believe that student musicians who reach high levels of playing ability on their instruments and enjoy exciting performing opportunities, will be much more likely to pursue their classical music interests into their adulthood.  The enjoyment of playing a stringed instrument well can accompany the individual throughout his/her life.

EWAM endeavors to realize this goal by providing the musician with a broad range of classical music training opportunities ranging from private violin, viola or cello lessons to exposure to symphonic and chamber orchestra music.   The EWAM musician’s classical music experience is even further enhanced by the participation in exciting EWAM community performances.  Our groups have performed at EWAM’s own concerts and recitals, The Celebration of Young Musicians concert, Camerata Musica’s Young Musicians of Distinction recital, the West Richland Concert in the Park series, the Cathedral of Joy church and many other community events.  Our students have been division winners at the Mid-Columbia Symphony’s Young Artist Competition and at the Washington State University String Chamber Music Workshop-Competition.  Some of EWAM’s very advanced, accomplished student musicians have been invited to audition for positions in the Eastern Washington Chamber Orchestra, a top chamber orchestra  made up of our region’s finest string musicians and university and college music faculty members.

We encourage you to contact us and set up an interview and audition time today!
