Guiding Principles

MG KIDS REHEARSAL WINTER 2014 1_edited.jpg

SAFETY   We provide a physically and emotionally safe space where youth develop music skills toward expressing themselves among like-minded youth.

INTEGRITY   We do the right thing.  We keep our promises.   Always. 

AFFINITY    Our passion for musical achievement nurtures interpersonal connection and trust through teamwork.

DIVERSITY   We value inclusion and the diverse perspectives that reflect a cross-section of voices in our community. We view diversity to include race, color, nationality, ethnicity, class, religion, disability, age, sex, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.

VERACITY    We do not act on perception, speculation or assumption.  We rely on facts and evidence in support of the truth.

TRANSPARENCY   Our transparency facilitates accountability to one another and the community-at-large.

RESPECT   Compassion, friendliness and respect for all guides us to build bridges with those we serve and the community-at-large.

FOCUS    We only pursue projects that reflect our vision and serve our mission.

EXCELLENCE    We seek excellence among our leadership, staff and students.



Salt Lake Academy of Music will always strive to be a trusted, reliable, and established source of youth music instruction in rock, blues, classical, jazz, Americana, electronic music, recording, and production regardless of students' societal and/or economic advantages or disadvantages.
