Learn About Our
The School of American Music offers private, one-on-one lessons at its studios on the second floor of the Three Oaks Library, 3 Elm Street and at the Three Oaks Arts and Education Building 14 Maple Street in Three Oaks. The lessons are taught by highly qualified instructors who are also performing musicians. SAM’s teaching philosophy emphasizes one-to-one instruction and public performance with twice-yearly recitals and other performance opportunities.
Most lessons are available for children and adults at beginning, intermediate and advanced levels of proficiency, and musical styles taught include contemporary, classical, jazz, blues, gospel. bluegrass, and rock-n-roll.
From a single student in April 2012, SAM has grown to serve more than 100 students per year, half of whom are supported by scholarships. Most lessons are available at beginning, intermediate and advanced levels, and offered to both children and adults. We are a not-for-profit 501 c3 and welcome all donations.
The School of American Music was founded by D. Garth Taylor to serve as a music resource in Michiana. Currently serving as President of SAM, Taylor has been joined over the years by Executive Director, Donna M. Mitchell and a full Board of Directors.
