"My daughter, Ashley (now age 18), who was a piano student and served as a lab assistant at the Charlotte Academy of Music for the past three years, will always remember her days in the Academy’s Glee Club!
After attending last year’s two summer Glee camps, she auditioned and was thrilled to be accepted into the Glee Club. Being a part of this show choir, gave her the opportunity to further explore her love of music, voice, dance and theatre in a professional environment, but casual atmosphere.
She was always excited about rehearsals, special events and group socials throughout the year. She developed a very special bond with this group of young people and the directors as they shared their talents and joys with each other and throughout the community.
It was a most enjoyable, rewarding and learning experience for her."

" My son has loved Glee Club from the minute he walked through the door. He came out after the first practice and told me "Mom, I have found my people."
The staff is great at planning fun activities and opportunities to perform; and the students are all supportive of each other. He's learning, having fun and making friends...there are not many places where he can get all of that!"
- Becky Thompson
Charlotte Academy of Music is proud to be the home of the Charlotte Glee Club! This show choir, under the direction of Alexandra Sims, is comprised of students ages 13-18. Students meet each week for a 90 minute Singing and Choreography class. Emphasis is placed on developing proper vocal technique, sight-reading skills, overall musicianship and stage presence. Students perform throughout the Charlotte area. Our Glee Camps were featured in news segments and in newspaper articles during the summer. The Associated Press visited the Academy and this story ran nation-wide, including ABC News! Read the AP article by Seanna Adcox here >
