We are the ONLY music school in the Greater Cleveland area that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces (see pictures to the right) by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder is our unique method of music education that you can only get here.

More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins. You can only get the Musical Ladder here. We also specialize in music lessons for adults.

Music FunTime Classes


Lakewood’s Marrell Music Lesson Center gets you really jazzed about playing an instrument and experiencing music in so many ways! Kids love building self-confidence and self-esteem as they develop their musical talent…a talent only an individual can do for him or herself. We offer you the opportunity to have your child start at a young age, developing aspects of their brain that connect Math & Science through music doing fun music craft workshops, playing simple instruments and rhythms, reading music notation and more.

As your child grows and plays an instrument, think about how you will feel thrilled to hear your kids play their instruments! Why is that? Because only a tiny number of people GLOBALLY, play a musical instrument. Out of millions of people in the world, musicians are seen as something really special. Marrell Music to what is now Lakewood Music Academy, has offered musical opportunities for over 10 years with that in mind. Sharon Marrell began in 2004 offering individual lessons out of her home to those seeking to learn an instrument. In 2008 at the beginning of the recession she chose to open a store front, share her students with other teachers and began a community based outreach to musicians in the Lakewood area that continues today as Lakewood Music Academy. It’a a fact that Kids love watching their parents play an instrument. When you share music, it bonds families. And what keeps a family together can make a huge difference for creating happy memories.
Ready to start your child on a fun filled music adventure with either piano lessons, drum lessons, guitar lessons, voice lessons or violin lessons? Call now for more information and class schedules.
