For The Love of Music

For The Love of Music

Hi, students and parents of SAMA!

As one of the newest members of the SAMA family, it’s been truly an honor meeting so many new faces eager to learn the art of the violin.

Part of that honor has been figuring out where all 50+ of my new students are on their individual musical journeys; what a ride! Many of our younger students are benefiting greatly from the tried and true Suzuki method that emphasizes listening while gradually introducing students to more challenging classical pieces.  Some of our students are working professionals in real estate and software development hoping to add some musical color and pizzazz to their lives. A few of our students are retirees who like to listen to their favorite Elvis Presley or Beatles song and sketch it out together by ear. And some of my students are young high school students who plan on majoring in violin performance at the collegiate level! I am so proud of my students every time they push through a difficult passage during our sessions and emerge better for it.

Whatever our unique musical paths, we must always come back to the fundamental, unifying reason why we do this, which has nothing to do with validation or grades or fame or money:

We do this because we Love music. It makes us feel alive, it makes us more whole, and more human.

Whether or not you, or your child, choose to become a concert violinist or a vocalist or a dancer or a casual listener of classical music, music will always be a part of your life and some day in the future, when you come home tired and worn out, you will etch out a little melody you learned from your teacher with levity and grace and you will say:

Nice. I feel better now.

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!
