Keeping Your Instrument In Tune

Keeping Your Instrument In Tune

No instruments make music by themselves. Their value is revealed when someone has the audacity to pick them up and try to make them sing. Our capacity as humans to act upon the world and our ability to breathe life into inanimate objects represents the most fundamental aspect of instruments, the maintenance of which allows us to sustain at minimum a functional level of performance. The benefits of understanding and caring for oneself stretch far beyond the boundaries of making music.

Three big areas requiring routine self-assessment include the heart, mind, and body, none of which is exclusive of the others.
When an honest, sincere decision is made to find joy in interaction with something beyond oneself, the mind is freed of its burden to convince a reluctant heart to continue forward and may more fully tend to the task itself. With clarity of mind, directed coordination of the body becomes more effortless. When the body may move more efficiently, it becomes “at home,” and the resulting synchronicity is a joy for the heart. Genuine engagement in an experience with the totality of one’s being holds greater significance than the conquering of ambitious repertoire. It is a real achievement which, when felt and continually nurtured, creates space for itself to become manifested at depth in endeavors beyond the practice room.

San Antonio Music Academy is very well organized. My daughter's piano teacher is wonderful! She's been taking lessons for 5 months and looks forward to each lesson. I really enjoy the recitals at the LOL Comedy Club.

My daughter has been registered here since she was 7. Each instructor she’s had has been very friendly and great to work with. Currently she has lessons with Ms Maria and we are so grateful for her and the entire SAMA staff. I can’t recommend enough.

San Antonio Music Academy is awesome, my son loves the guitar lessons and is super excited to attend every week! He started with zero experience and progressed surprisingly fast. Randy is an amazingly talented guitarist/teacher. He is very patient, yet knows how to push students to the next level. Highly recommend all the instructors, the staff is great!
