2015 was a year of excitement and growth at Carmel Music Academy.The Academy’s student enrollment tripled from this time last year! We changed our name from Jon E. Gee’s Music Room to Carmel Music Academy. Dignitaries and public figures such as Congresswoman Susan Brooks, Mayor James Brainard, and Chamber of Commerce President Mo Merhoff were in attendance as we celebrated our grand opening in August. The Indianapolis Star, Hamilton County Times, Carmel Magazine, and Current in Carmel featured us in print articles, and an online article in Parent Magazine. CMA received an award for growth success as a music academy. We paid it forward by giving back through school visits and continuing our support of one of our favorite Music Charities, Little Kids Rock. At Farm-Aid we met Imagine Dragons and music icon Mavis Staples. The grand finale to 2015 was the standing room only Annual Winter Student Concert.
