Seacoast Academy of Music, LLC, was founded and has been in operation in North Hampton, NH since 2001. Through the years we have taught well over two thousand students, ages ranging from 2.5 years to 84 years young. SAM hosted scores of student recitals, both at SAM and around the New Hampshire Seacoast. Our teachers have mentored and coached students through state competitions, community and professional auditions, state-wide festivals, and substantive performances.

SAM reached out to students in “Satellite” School Program locations in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. We established a community school band, Centennial Hall Jazz Band, Ukulele groups and children’s performance ensembles. Our students performed in Master Classes lead by guest performing artists as well as our own SAM faculty members.

SAM Teachers have also organized and performed in solo and collaborative musical events for the benefit of Centennial Hall and many other community organizations. Rewards have been constant and too numerous to define.

 I have learned so much from my students and colleagues at SAM. Sometimes we succeeded and sometimes we fell short of our expectations. We endured a pandemic, and for me, teaching at SAM was one of my saving graces through a most personal loss.

But through it all, music remains. It is a source of magic and joy for all to appreciate.

So, here we are in 2024, with a renewed vision and fresh ideas to share with our students, families, and community!

Seacoast Academy of Music is Alive with Music Education!

Greetings to all who visit our website!

Take a look around and perhaps you may find that certain musical instrument you always wanted to play. How about enrolling your favorite 4-year-old into a Suzuki String class? Maybe you would like to enjoy singing with your child in a community chorus or strum along with a community ukulele group? Need a bit of coaching to ace that upcoming audition? Can you see your children forming the next great family band? Imagine the thrill of hearing your child perform a Beethoven Sonata! Or maybe you just love the energy that live music brings into you home?

SAM is Alive with Music Education.

We remain musically yours,

C. Christine Petrucci
