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.

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.

Bruce Springsteen speaks at the 29th Annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony

“So, real bands — real bands are made primarily from the neighborhood. From a real time and real place that exists for a little while, then changes and is gone forever. They’re made from the same circumstances, the same needs, the same hungers, culture. They’re forged in the search of something more promising than what you were born into. These are the elements, the tools, and these are the people who built the place called E Street.”  – Bruce Springsteen


Bruce’s speech at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction is so incredibly relevant, and It needs to be quoted and posted because I don’t think people realize that todays current youth is no longer being raised to play music the way Bruce did when he was a kid.  It’s absolutely essential to learn as much as you can about music at a young age… so when you do come of age, you’ll have so music history to lean on.
