The Malibu String Academy is a highly acclaimed pre-college music school, uniquely located in Malibu, CA. Founded in 2007 by Dr. Maia Zander, the renowned pedagogue and violinist, the Academy provides instruction in violin, viola, and cello. At the Malibu String Academy, we strive to teach students both the musical skills and the life skills that will help them achieve success and personal fulfillment. Because the Malibu String Academy employs only the most highly-trained artist-faculty, each of whom is an accomplished performer as well as a highly sought-after teacher, we are able to offer a musical education that rivals that of any pre-college program in the country.

Enrollment in the Academy includes private lessons with world-class faculty, as well as regular performance opportunities for students of all ages and abilities.  Instruction in violin and viola is offered for students ages three and up in either Suzuki or traditional methods. Private instruction and ensemble coaching is also available for adult students.
