Parents sit and wonder if their kids have talent, but they never take the next step because they don’t know what it is!
I’m James Daly, owner of San Ramon Academy of Music, and a music teacher for the last 15 years. I made SRAM to revolutionize how we approach learning music.
As a child, I began piano lessons at 4, but lessons and practice felt more like a chore. This led to burnout, and I quit. However, I knew I loved music!
After years of self study, I encountered a teacher who understood music beyond just playing the right notes. Learning became play, and music transformed into endless possibilities. Fast forward and I’m at UC Berkeley on a full academic scholarship and getting to travel the world playing music.
At SRAM, we redefine ‘practice’ by making it playful and sustainable. Lessons are not just productive but a cherished experience because of our educators, teaching methods, and the unique resources available to all of our students.
