Our Core Values

Oregon Music Academy is more than just music lessons. At OMA, music is a vehicle for teaching life-skills and strengthening values that will enhance our students’ lives, no matter where their future leads them. These are the Core Values that guide our students, parents, teachers, and staff in work, play, and life:

Embrace The Challenge

Challenges are gifts. They are how we learn and grow. We seek out challenges and are determined to overcome them. We are proactive and creative in our approach to solving problems. We are encouraging and supportive of others expanding their horizons. We approach life with optimism and enthusiasm.

Better Your Best

Excellence is not a final destination, it is an ongoing journey. We are committed to continual improvement and lifelong learning. Reaching for, achieving, and exceeding goals creates joy and satisfaction in our lives. We mentor and lead others to reach their full potential.

Own The Outcome

“If it is to be, it is up to me.” Our actions or inactions have an impact on ourselves and the world around us. We are accountable for our own success or failure. We give before we get and understand that Effort = Results.

Show You Care

People matter. Kindness matters. Relationships are at the heart of everything we do. No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care. We value the whole person. We strive to understand people’s aspirations, needs, and struggles. We are eager to offer assistance, exceed expectations, and wow them. We humbly serve others.

Do The Right Thing

We live a life of integrity. We are trustworthy, open, honest, respectful, and fair. We act in a professional manner. We honor our commitments and are reliable. We leave the world better than we found it.

We Are OMA

You are the Oregon Music Academy. Your words and actions represent and reflect all of us. When one of us falls, we all fall. When one of us shines, we all shine. We are one Academy, united. “They” and “them” do not exist here. We are the “they”. We work together as a team. We enrich our community by living our values and sharing our gifts.
