    Student Incentives

    As part of our commitment to inspire and motivate our students we have student incentives built into our curriculum such as:

    ☆ Star Student Prizes
    which encourages good practice habits and rewards students for completing their weekly assignments.

    ♪ Student Challenges
    Student challenges such as our "Practice Marathon" motivate students to practice even more as they rack up points and prizes for every minute they practice!

    Open Mics, Concerts, & Competitions

    SAS Music hosts a Winter Concert and Spring Concert each year which the students are given the opportunity to show their family and friends what they have accomplished.

    In addition to 2 concerts a year, we also offer group workshops in the Fall and Spring semester.

    Events that inspire
    and motivate students

    As part of our commitment to offer numerous performance opportunities, in addition to the events described above, SAS Music students are given the opportunity to participate in ChamPianos a piano competition developed in conjunction with the American Maestro Awards. Sponsored by BOLD, Inc. Champianos gives students the opportunity to use their skills to earn prizes, including scholarships.


    The instructors at SAS Music find it very important for students to enjoy the music they are learning and to have some choices in their repertoire. Very simply put,

    If students like what they are playing..
                                  ... they will keep playing it!

    SAS Music encourages students to learn about different styles and music genres, including
                     ♪ Classical
                     ♪ Pop
                     ♪ Broadway

                     ♪ and more!

    With their teacher's guidance we encourage students to choose recital music that inspires them.


    ChamPianos is an annual state-wide piano competition sponsored by BOLD, Inc. It is open to all piano students grades K - 12 and utilizes a level system based on the American Maestro Awards.
