About


Bennett Academy was founded, 1996, in a small  living room in New Rochelle, NY, by a young singer, pianist and playwright, Andrea Bennett.  As a music teacher Ms. Bennett  saw a need for talented children to receive affordable but thorough music lessons, and therefore, getting performance opportunities. From those humble beginnings Bennett Academy has grown, and given birth to successful singers and songwriters, who have worked with the likes of Toni Braxton, Nick Jonas, Kirk Franklin, and many more. Our students have had impromptu duets with their favorite rock stars,  made beautiful original music, and have won competitions.  Many of Bennett Academy actors have honed their skills in Bennett Academy productions, with original plays such as What She Deserves-A Murder Mystery, Shadybrook, The Music Class and Detention With Mr. Oakley. Our actors also got a chance to work Off-Broadway with successful shows such as Odella Williams Show, and   Hope Street .  At Bennett Academy, Alumni, teachers and students are all working artists in commercials, film,  concerts, and theater.   The Academy has provided opportunities for an artists' growth by getting them partnered with the best agents, hiring master teachers, and offering innovative holistic training, in a supportive and nurturing environment. At Bennett Academy your dreams are our blueprint. Unlock your limitless possibilities!
