A new, Naples-based music academy for young adults with special educational needs is settling into its new and temporary home while waiting for its forever home to be renovated.
Southwest Florida Music Education Center opened at 551 Ridgewood Drive, Suite 100, in Naples in an abandoned bank building.
The school accepts students from age 18 to 30 who aspire to be musicians but are looking for a nontraditional curriculum and instruction. Tuition costs $36,000 per year, and the school started small, for now, with just four students.
“We are a first-of-its-kind music academy,” Executive Director Jennifer Clark said. “It was so important that we got it right. We had to start small, so we could fulfill our promise of instructional learning.”
