WAMA and Wildwood Park

WAMA’s facilities are located at Wildwood Park for the Arts. This beautiful park enriches the lives of Arkansans of all ages by creating community through nature and the arts. A 105-acre park, gardens, and 625-seat theatre complex make Wildwood one of our state’s most valuable natural and cultural resources.

We love helping young Arkansans to grow and flourish as musicians. Our distinguished faculty are chosen for their excellence as role models and arts educators.  Our beautiful natural setting, accomplished instructors, and specialized programming come together to create a unique and exciting opportunity for young Arkansas musicians.
