Established in 1992 in East Brunswick, NJ, as the Music Factory Learning Center, we began as a small community music school on the second floor above a deli, teaching private music lessons. In 2005, we expanded into a brand new shopping center in Spotswood, NJ, changed our name to Academy of Music on Main Street, as well as added ensembles and an early childhood music program. By 2008, we had grown to over 600 students. In 2014 we added dance classes and music therapy programs to better address the needs of our community and became the Academy of Music and Dance. We are excited to begin our 25th year of sharing the arts in Middlesex County, NJ.

Located in Spotswood, NJ, serving the Middlesex County area, including Monroe Township, Old Bridge, Helmetta, Freehold, East Brunswick and Jamesburg.
