San Antonio Music Academy is devoted to excellence in music education. As one of our core values, we aim to “be the epitome of excellence and quality in education. (To see a complete list of our core values, click here.) SAMA guitar instructors are dedicated to this value and believe that an aspiring musician can reach his or her goals with enough determination and hard work. SAMA guitar instructors guide their students towards their goals by instructing them each week on a new set of material and helping them perfect the skills learned in the previous lesson. Students are given weekly assignments, much like they are given in academic school, geared towards developing the skills necessary to become an accomplished musician. The students here at San Antonio Music Academy have varied goals, from playing pop songs in the privacy of their room to playing in a rock band with classmates from their school, and some even hope to pursue music education and performance at a collegiate level. Whatever a student’s interest, we encourage our students to express this to their instructor so that the private lessons an instructor creates will be constructed with this in mind. We know that students succeed when given goals that are both interesting and challenging.
As part of our program at SAMA, we encourage students to perform in our formal recitals which give students the opportunity to showcase their talent for family and friends. Performance is a skill in and of itself, and one that we feel is an essential part of being a musician. For those really ambitious guitarists, we have ensemble classes that will give them a group setting and teach them essential skills useful for playing and performing with other musicians. Students enrolled in these ensemble classes, get real-world experience of what it’s like to play in a band, all under the direction of SAMA’s highly experienced and university educated guitar instructors.
In addition to the formal education our guitar instructors have received (Click here to see SAMA guitar instructor bios), they are each accomplished performers in their own right. Some play classical guitar for private events and faulty concerts, while others play jazz at local jazz clubs within the San Antonio area. And yet others play in their very own rock band. Through their experience and education, SAMA instructors have the proficiency to train their students in the genre of their interest. (Click here to view guitar instructor performance videos.)
