About Creative Music Academy

Center for the Performing Arts

Creative Music Academy, Center for the Performing Arts, once Century Piano, evolved into the Fredericksburg, Virginia place for pianos. We are able to help you with purchasing new or used pianos, moving your piano, servicing your piano, including tuning and appraisals.

Creative Music Academy, Center for the Performing Arts offers private music lessons for all types of students, beginner, intermediate to more advanced. We are able to assist with play or concert preparations, helping determine which instrument might be the best to start with and all concepts in between. We offer strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, voice and piano.

Oftentimes you will be greeted by Jim Breakiron who, when not in the shop can be found about town playing his trombone. He was a member of the 730th United States Air Force Band and has played locally with the Fredericksburg Big Band, Rappahannock POP Orchestra, UMW Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra for the local Nationals, and nationally with Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, James Brown, Ella Fitzgerald and so many more!

We believe in a musical experience starting with one note!
