See what parents, teachers, students and community members are saying about SAM

The actual best part of being part of SAM has been community – being mentored by older students, finding a community of supportive peers, and as our daughter grew older, mentoring younger students as she was mentored. More than the music, this is what SAM has given her.

- Isabel Jordan, Parent

My time at SAM gave me the belief needed to pursue music more fully. Now I perform in operas and teach the next generation of singers.

- Lyndon Ladeur, Teacher

My dream is that music (particularly singing) becomes as cool as mountain biking in Squamish. SAM provides many paths to building a healthier more musical Squamish.

- Meg Fellowes, Community Member

I particularly appreciate the professionalism and the fact that a variety of musical education occurs under one roof.

- Brian Marchant, Community Member
I chose SAM because it gave me the room to explore different types of music from an early start. For instance, I started at SAM taking piano lessons and eventually took up the flute in private lessons, after being introduced to the instrument at school. Throughout this time I was able to participate in the Howe Sound Music Festival, perform at concerts at community events, pursue Royal Conservatory of Music exams, and eventually start teaching other students. SAM allowed me the space to grow in my music education, which was a major factor in me deciding to start there.
