If Music Be the Food You Love, Play On!

If Music Be the Food You Love, Play On!

With fall already upon us, many students are already feeling the fatigue of a new school year. It’s definitely a difficult task to juggle music with homework, friends, and other extracurricular activities, so how can we make music an important yet enjoyable experience? 
Practicing an instrument is often seen as “boring” or “not fun.” In the past week alone, how many times have you or your child complained about practicing? If the answer is “too many to count,” don’t worry – you are not alone! Practicing can be seen as tedious, monotonous, and sometimes just downright tiring, especially if you don’t know what you’re practicing. Every piece tells a story, just like your favorite book or TV show. When you practice, listen to the music that you are producing – how does it make you feel? Does the piece sound happy, sad, angry? Does it sound like it could belong in a scary movie? How can we change the sounds of a piece to make it sound different? Even the most basic emotions can be the beginning of a great musical story. I encourage you to make up a story to the pieces you play, and I can guarantee you that practicing will become slightly more enjoyable!

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!
