SAM Gift Certificates for Wishful Musicians!

SAM_2013_header6Our teachers are gearing up for the end of the semester of music classes! We hope your holiday shopping and preparation have been stress-free and filled with celebratory music making. To add to your family’s ease in shopping, Seacoast Academy of Music is offering gift certificates for private lessons! Help your friends get away from the usual technology gifts and give them a gift of music instead.


We all have those friends who wish they had learned to play piano or guitar when they were younger. A six-week trial plan is a great gift for your giftee to see if their musical wishes are something they want to continue with at the academy. You can also choose this gift if you have kids who love to sing around the house, play on the family piano, or show an early love for band instruments before they’re ready to start taking organized band classes in school.


If you hope to purchase one of these gift certificates, contact us at our email at We’d be happy to answer any questions you may have so we can direct you to the proper teacher. Happy Holidays!


Candlelight Stroll at Strawberry BankeStrawberyBankeCandlelightStroll-3-


One of our favorite holiday traditions has become the candlelight stroll at Strawberry Banke Museum in downtown Portsmouth. It’s one of the best and most fun ways to be connected to the past and present during the holidays by the seacoast!

While you’re enjoying your hot cider, cocoa, ice skating, and sleigh rides, you can also hear  your SAM teachers  and students performing from 4-8 PM  on Sunday, December 13 in the Visitor’s Center. Come show your support and enjoy one of the best holiday traditions the New Hampshire seacoast has to offer!
