Kent Island Academy of Music

At Kent Island Academy of Music (KIAM) we understand that there are many different learning styles and that every student is different.  Because of this, we strive to create lessons that reflect each students individual musical goals and learning style while simultaneously guiding students into broader musical territory.


“My son has learned so much from Mike but most importantly he has had fun doing it. Although we came in to learn guitar, Mike quickly realized that my son was interested in the drums as well. Mike has incorporated the drums into their learning and he has been so pleased. We have been really impressed with Mike’s approach to teaching and making the learning a fun and enjoyable experience.”

“Owner, Mike Waskey is a great teacher, that has the ability to work with his students and bring out the best in them. I highly recommend this studio.”

“I have very much enjoyed taking Ukulele lessons from Mike at the Kent Island Academy of Music for the past 2 years. Mike is very patient with me and is able to taylor each lesson to my specific skill level at that moment. Mike will go out of his way to take a piece of music and convert it to the Ukulele as well as tweaking the piece to work with my sometimes difficult finger dexterity problems. If you are looking for a music instrument instructor who is versatile with many different instruments and who will teach you to play and love the learning process, you will not be disappointed!!!”

  • Paul S

“I’m 73 years old and have been with Mike for about 8 years, with a couple breaks during that time. I would highly recommend Mike to any senior that is thinking of pursuing a hobby of music. Mike will move at your pace, and always makes you feel positive with your progress. To sum it up he’s just a nice guy and good instructor. “
