About our Music & Dance School

LAAPA arrived on the Northshore near Abita Springs in Covington in the late 2000's after founder, Wanda Cullen began the River Ridge Music School in New Orleans on the Southshore in the late 70's!

For over forty years, our school has taught thousands of students and we have enjoyed helping all of them to develop a lifelong love of music and dance.

In addition to music lessons, our sister school in Mandeville additionally offers dance classes for students of all ages. Take some time to explore all of our program offerings below! Beginners are encouraged to check out the EXPLORE links first to determine which programs they are eligible to get started in.


Music & Dance Classes - Online or In Person

We love working with beginners in lessons!

Our school is proud to offer all students the option to attend lessons online or in person! Our faculty are comfortable teaching either way and we've been teaching online since 2012! You can learn a little more about our online classes below!


Student and Parent Success Stories

As a resident of Bush, just north of Abita Springs, I was pleased to be able to schedule all three of my children in guitar, piano, voice, and ballet classes on the same day! It takes us around 20 minutes to come in from Bush, so I really appreciate that convenience. All of the teachers have been amazing as well. Can't recommend highly enough!

My instructor, as well as the staff, at Covington School of Music are first class A+! They make learning music easy to understand and have the experience and knowledge to help students at any level.

We absolutely love the Covington School of Music! My son is taking drum lessons and he has learned so much from his teacher in a very short period of time. The staff is awesome to work with with as well. They always help out with any scheduling problems when they arise. Great teachers and great customer service! Highly recommended!

I was skeptical about learning to play an instrument, but after walking into Covington School of Music and being greeted with a warm welcome and a personal tour of the facility, I committed on the spot! My instructor has helped me learn guitar on a level that was tailored to me. 1 on 1 lessons are paced at your own level and skill set (Which I had none of going in)! Highly recommend Covington School of Music if you're looking to learn the guitar!!!
