Intermezzo Academy of Music

Announcing the New Fall 2015 Schedule!

Early registration from August 3rd to September 12th.
Regular rates from September 12th to September 21st.

Placement auditions will be held September 12th, so if you don't know which ensemble to choose we will help you. Click on the Audition Request tab and follow the directions...and don't forget the $10 fee, which will be applied to your tuition. 

Remember that our fall classes and orchestras will now include a pull-out program where experienced players and professionals will take students for semi-private lessons once a month! (Early Start Strings and Composer's Club will have one private lesson per term.)

Also, please call us at 720.432.6873 for more information or to schedule a tour.

Rehearsals start the week of September 21st.

We also have a new music therapy program! This new opportunity is for students with special needs, learning differences, and those who are on the autism spectrum (ASD). The therapists will work from your strengths to help you reach your goals. Sessions are through Advantage Music Therapy to address cognitive development and social skills goals whether a student has an IEP or not. CES and SLS waivers accepted. For more information, go to and see what a difference an Advantage can make!
