DEA Music & Art

20th Anniversary Year!

Founded in 2003, the DEA Music and Art school has helped enrich life in many communities worldwide. 

Our students not only learn Music and Arts โ€“ they take home experiences and memories that last a lifetime.

“When children are given an opportunity to express themselves creatively, their self-esteem skyrockets.ย They feel empowered and excited about the future because they know that there is no better feeling than being able to create something from nothing!”

– Magi Dizdari, Owner of Dizdari Education Academy

Staten Island Based Children's Music, Art and Theatre School

DEA Music & Art School offers numerous programs including specific instruments, musical theatre & summer programs! Our brand new online programs allow us to connect with students anywhere!

Teachers at DEA music and art are professional, fun and knowledgeable. All of our teachers are masters in their craft! DEA has multiple programs, performances and events year-round to keep kids busy and engaged.

DEA has always taken the cleanliness of our studios and learning environments very seriously. We disinfect our instruments after each class and students are asked to wash their hands before each class starts!

We’ve recently launched our lessons with students online and have had great success! We’re alternating lessons at home, and lessons in studio week-by-week.

DEA wants parents to know that weโ€™ve adjusted our processes and are ready to provide a clean, prepared and modern music & art learning experience for our students from beginning to end.

"We absolutely love DEA Music and Art school. Our daughter Sage who is 12 attends the Tottenville location on Page ave. She takes piano, vocals, musical theater and art. She loves them all. Her teacher for piano and vocals is Julia and she is fabulous . Through this entire Covid situation her classes have remained on zoom and have been great..."

"My all time favorite music school for kids. Why? Because my 5 year old daughter loves it and is already reading music for piano. Her teacher Tiffany is extremely nice. You can tell that Magi (the Director) and her staff are passionate about music. And actually they teach all ages. my husband wants to start learning as well! My 2 girls 6 & 4 are now in summer camp here and they LOVE IT!!!! Music, theater, art & dance- what not to like!

"My 2 children have been students at Dea for about 5 years. My son takes piano and guitar and my daughter, violin and voice.

It seems DEA's approach to music is more about having their students develop a respect and love of the instrument vs. a hard line approach.
I highly recommend this school."
