Music Heritage

Music Heritage

Knowing your musical roots is valuable not just as an artist, but as a human being. Whether you were born in Texas, California, New York, or another country, you inherit a musical heritage from your birthplace and your parents’ background. There is value in that, and we have seen it in multiple examples in both classical and commercial music.

One of the most famous cases of how music heritage made a difference in music is Astor Piazzolla’s work. Piazzolla was born in Argentina, the birthplace of tango. After succeeding and standing out from other musicians, Astor Piazzolla went to France to study music composition. Eventually, he returned to Argentina driven by a desire to reconnect to his roots. Coming back to Argentina provided him with the inspiration to transform tango, and to become a leading contemporary composer. His incredible talent was undeniable, but it was his decision to embrace his musical heritage that truly set him apart.

In commercial music, we find Selena Quintanilla. Though she was born in Texas, her Mexican roots made her the perfect example of someone who decided to take advantage of her musical heritage. She became one of the biggest stars in Tejano music but also excelled in cumbia and baladas. In doing so, she demonstrated the versatility that can come from embracing one’s heritage.

Parents, I encourage you to introduce your children to their musical heritage. Embracing it could make their musical journey more special, meaningful, and potentially more successful.

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!
