“Music is the language of the heart, without words.”

Thank you for your interest in the San Jose Academy of Music. SJAM’s program is created to develop the whole child. We believe that music is a means to establish good work ethic, satisfaction of hard work, self-expression, critical thinking and to build confidence. We hope that the study of music will enhance their lives and give them valuable skills to pursue any career or life path they choose.

There are three components to achieve a meaningful music experience : the parent, the student, and the teacher.

  • The teacher’s primary role is to be an example and role model for the child and parent.

  • The parent learns from the teacher how to teach music to the child.

  • The child learns from the teacher (with the support of the parents) how the instrument should sound and what good posture should look like and feel like.

Music making can become a positive family experience, aiming to bring emphasis to the learning process and support the parents to be involved, thus, encouraging the child’s success.

I invite you to meet our accomplished faculty, visit our school, and learn about the programs that SJAM has to offer. Musically engage your child to become a generous, thoughtful, and imaginative individual, positively contributing to our community, and in turn, the world!
