About Me

  Hello! My name is Samantha. I have been working for music stores since 2007 and with Music & Arts Center since 2012. I started playing music when I was 9 years old and I would never have thought my career would be to help others do what I did when I was a kid--PLAY MUSIC!

 

I am the new school service representative for the Inland Empire, overseeing school accounts and assisting with all the band, orchestra, choral, general music, guitar, or piano/keyboard programs in San Bernardino County and Riverside County.

 

For band directors, I am here to help you grow a successful band, orchestra, or choral program including:

-Setting up rental or info nights to get your students the instruments and accessories they need to be a successful musician

-Help with purchasing needs through your school, booster group, or district with the best possible discounted educator pricing

-Bring private lesson teachers or guest clinicians into your classroom to work with your class and have fun

-Provide essential materials needed throughout the year: recruiting fliers, rental fliers, fall welcome letters, etc

-Visit you regularly to build a relationship and become your partner in growing successful musicians

-Pick up/drop off instruments for repair

-Sponsor/attend events such as Marching Band Field Shows, Jazz Band Festivals, Concerts, etc.

-Know your preference or what you require your students to have and ensure we have all products available in our local stores or with me as I visit your school

& So Much More!

 

For the parent/student, I am here to help you/your child have the best chance of being a great musician including:

-Renting you an instrument and getting you all required materials needed for your specific school, based on your teacher's preference.

-Offer clinics/classes in your school or in our local store to sharpen your musician's skills

-Help with purchasing needs, whether you are looking to buy an instrument or need accessories for class

-Be available to answer any questions about our products, programs, rentals, or other music related issues

-Provide information on our private music lessons at one of our local stores with our awesome teachers. Band Directors highly recommend taking private lessons and it GREATLY reinforces what they teach in the classroom.

& So Much More!

I am a HUGE advocate for taking private lessons and Music & Arts Center is definitely the place to take them! We give OVER A MILLION LESSONS A YEAR! Each class is customized for every student, where the student works one-on-one with the instructor to learn what they want to learn and have fun while doing it. We offer performances throughout the year such as: Monthly Open Mic Nights, In-Store Recitals, Showcases hosted at a local venue, & different Jam Sessions. Our stores currently teach the following instruments: acoustic guitar lessons, electric guitar lessons, bass guitar lessons, ukelele lessons, harmonica lessons, drumline lessons, drum set lessons, percussion lessons, piano lessons, keyboard lessons, voice lessons, saxophone lessons, clarinet lessons, flute lessons, trumpet lessons, trombone lessons, baritone lessons, french horn lessons, tuba lessons, violin lessons, cello lessons, mandolin lessons, & banjo lessons. You can call any store to book your appointment today!
