About

EXCELLENCE WITHIN REACH

One A-Chord Academy is a place where youth of all socioeconomic backgrounds can discover and develop their natural talents in music and the creative arts. Students learn from professional musicians and artists who provide not only top-notch class instruction, but also mentorship. With the support of their instructors, students develop life skills like determination, commitment, and endurance as they pursue their passions.

MAKING THE ARTS AFFORDABLE

While a one-on-one instruction is valuable, you may consider a group class. Students can work together to achieve their goals by collaborating for OAC concerts. Find your own group or have one put together for you for a,“Garage Band” class. Class sizes are kept small, enabling students to receive one-on-one instructor attention without the cost of private lessons.

EXPLORE OR SOCIALIZE

One A-Chord encourages new students to take multiple entry-level classes. Our scheduling enables kids to try out more than one instrument or other artistic pursuit. By exploring multiple classes, students develop a fuller appreciation for all the arts and have the opportunity to see what really inspires them. We also provide instruction for more experienced students, helping them to master their chosen art.

ABOUT THE OWNERS

“Katie and Scott Shrock, Jr. are exceptionally charismatic and friendly individuals. They work hard on their music business, raising their three children and still find time to volunteer for our community. In teaming to create the Stanwood & Camano Merchant’s Committee with them, I have had the privilege to get to know them very well. I have been taking guitar lessons from Scott since selling them their house and he is a great teacher! I am thrilled to be their first Stanwood student. ” K. Kipper.
