ARTS & EDUCATION CENTER
About the Arts & Education Center
The School of American Music’s Arts & Education Center, 14 Maple St. in Three Oaks, was acquired in 2015 to serve as a space for group programs, rehearsals and studio recording. The A&E Center, once the town’s village hall, is used as a rehearsal space by the Harbor Country Singers and SAM Music Ensembles; a venue for other classes, such as weekly yoga sessions with Deirdre Guthrie; periodic musical and other workshops, and a state-of-the-art Recording Studio.
The A&E Center is also home to SAM’s children’s programs, including its World Drumming class and its Music and Storytelling program for preschoolers. Some special programs will pop up around the community from time to time: keep checking our calendar or sign up to receive email notices. SAM and its teachers are also ready to come to schools and other venues to provide short-term classes and/or experiences in music for children of all ages. Contact us by email or phone to enlist our services.
An outdoor stage, attached to the rear of the A&E Center and facing Dewey Canon Park, has been a performance site for student recitals, talent shows, SAM-affiliated musical groups, and a center for community events. Complete sound systems are available for either indoor or outdoor use.
The A&E Center is available for rent to individuals and groups for educational programs, workshops, meetings and private events. Click the button below to learn about rates and to fill out a rental form.
