SMA Practice Challenge

At Stax Music Academy we believe anyone can have natural talent but it’s through practice and discipline that one can be transformed from good to great. Music is hard work. It’s a craft to be perfected upon everyday. No great musician was made overnight. Help us kick off our 20th anniversary with a 30 day Practice Challenge.Each day Academy students will dedicate 30 minutes to practice.

We practice to be better at our craft. We practice for the love of music.
