SPMA Welcomes Alex Jenkins to Summer 17′

HAND DRUM CLASS ADDED TO SUMMER SCHEDULE!!!

Screen Shot 2017-03-26 at 9.23.58 AMPercussionist: Alex Jenkins will teach a hand drum class during the 3rd week of SPMA Summer 17′   This One Week Class will meet Monday through Friday: July 24th through July 28th at 10:30am, for 90 minutes each day.  The Class will conclude with a short performance at Clara, in the Courtyard on Friday at the end of the week between 12 and 12:30pm

(Will have approximately 10 Djembe Drums available for students…please bring your own hand drum if you have one.)

Jenkin’s in-depth study of world music culture gives Alex a sound that transcends musical traditions and boundaries. His expression of rhythm is heavily influenced by his study of Indian Classical Tabla, & as a result,  Jenkins has become well known for his creative approach to music, drums and his unique ability to fuse rhythmic ideas from various disciplines, into one cohesive sound.

Grand Opening Re-Cap & Diversity Day at BLM

Hi Folks!

The Grand Opening on Second Second Saturday at Clara was great for Sac Prep Music Academy.  We had many people cruise through the studios to check out our scene, see what we offer and what we’re all about.  We handed out a bunch of brochures and met a lot of new faces & we’re always happy to add people to Ukulele Project & our Guitar Project.
Screen Shot 2016-08-17 at 7.44.43 AMYesterday, Sac Prep Music Academy had the pleasure of performing at Diversity Awareness Day at The Federal Building on Cottage way.  Big thanks to Nicole Ward for setting the Academy up with this opportunity.  Two of our students performed a selection of red hot fiddle tunes, and Alex Bonilla performed two classical guitar pieces between our set and the next performers.  Always a great thing to have students performing out in public, as it fulfills our mission as a 501c3 public benefit organization.

 

 

Please come support Sac Prep Music at Curtis Fest on August 28th.
Our Students will take the stage at 11:30am (hopefully before it’s too hot), and we will run a booth for the duration of the event.
