Spring Music Contests – Our first online evaluative adjudication was May 1st. We had a full 30 students in guitar, piano and violin who submitted videos of their recital pieces and level-appropriate scales/chords. They received some extremely positive feedback and constructive critique from an impartial judge on their instrument along with a Certificate of Completion. Wish we could have sent them on to “State”. Instead, adjudicator selections were presented at…
“Music Moves Us Together” Online Recital – This was an incredible success. It took a lot of work on our end and we know how the students (and videographers) worked very hard to participate. Thanks to all who encouraged their students in it, to our judges for amazing feedback for them and to all who watched the recital to give some shout-outs in real time.

We’ll do something similar in the fall!
Did you see us in the News? – The SJAA was featured in a recent Sunday edition of the St. Joseph News Press for our transition to online music learning. And Sydney got the photo opp!
We held our first ever SJAA “State of the Academy” & Teacher Continuing Ed. Zoom meeting edition this month. We set a record for getting almost everyone together. Looked like “Hollywood Squares” but with a focus our amazing team. But mostly, we talked about your amazing students.
