Faculty of the Sharon Music Academy continue to support Ukraine and celebrate Ukrainian culture. You can see the soul of Ukrainian people in their songs. We want to share this with you.
Making music together is the closest you can get to another person. And when you're doing that with your family, it's even more special. It's not just about the performance—it's about the whole process of rehearsing together and connecting on a higher level. That's why "Families in Concert," the annual recital of our family ensembles, is one of our favorite events at Sharon Music Academy.
This year was no exception. We saw so many smiles and happy families, and even the weather joined in on the fun—a rainbow appeared as people left the concert!
If you are interested to find out more about our music programs or have a question about any other program at Sharon Music Academy, please call us at (781)784-9079.
It has been a long tradition of the Sharon Music Academy to bring the joy of music to the local senior communities. Nothing else proves to a young musician the importance of music in people’s lives than the glowing smile of an adult or when everybody starts to sing along! Finally, after the long pandemic, SMA students were invited again to perform for the residents of Stony Brook Court in Sharon. And like in the old days, Kendall Davenport, Amanda Li, Norah Farooq, and Soyun Lee brought smiles and joy of music to everyone in the audience. Thanks to Tara Murano, Resident Services Coordinator at Peabody Resident Services, for a delightful afternoon for kids and residents!

Every teacher and school lives vicariously through their students. And imagine how the Music Director of the Sharon Music Academy felt when she learned that our 2022 graduate, Michael Karshis, was chosen as 2021 Young Artist of the Year by the Steinway Society of Massachusetts. Excited, proud, happy! You can read about Michael’s brilliant music career on the Steinway Society website:
https://steinwaysocietymass.org/michael-karshis-2021-young-artist-of-the-year/
And this wonderful news came on the heels of another great news – Michael was accepted to West Point! Another great achievement! We always knew that music teaches all the skills a modern warrior requires. Congratulations to Michael and his teacher Tanya Schwartzman!

Sharon Music Academy is proud to have raised over $3000 for the Ukrainian relief effort. We want to thank everyone who was involved in making this a successful event. It was an evening filled with beautiful music for a great cause.
If you did not have a chance to join us in a live concert, you can watch broadcasts by Sharon TV on channel 8 at 5:05pm, Apr 7th, and on Friday, Apr 8th at 1:30 pm.

Sharon Music Academy always believes that music has a special place in human hearts in times of tragedy. And not only does music raises the spirits, but it also has the power to encourage us to do good and love. That’s why, over the years, Sharon Music Academy held many fundraising concerts and events. We supported the children of Chernobyl in the nineties and terminally ill kids during the pandemic in 2021. Today we dedicate our concert and fundraising event to the people of Ukraine. And it has never been as urgent and as personal as today. Three of our teachers and one student have close family members under bombs in Ukraine. You will have a chance to meet and talk to them. Please do come and contribute. We count on you! You can donate or buy tickets online at

Everybody knows that learning music makes you smarter. But it turns out that it also makes you glow and be beautiful. Our student, Marianna McCallum, was Miss America Pre-Teen last year. And this was also a winning combination for our student Faith O’Hanlon who became the first ever Miss Southeastern Massachusetts Outstanding Teen! We don’t know what helped her win - her amazing piano playing, her social impact initiative “Hope for Hearts,” which brings advocacy and awareness to heart disease, or her brilliant answers at the interview. Probably, all of the above. We wish her luck on the state and national levels! And she had already started her year-long service as a reigning queen at a charity event at the local animal shelter. Congratulations again, Faith!

Music history through touch, vision, and sound - that is what our students’ trip to Frederick Historical Piano Collection in Ashburton, MA was all about. They could feel the keys and hear the sounds as Debussy, Beethoven, and Liszt did when they composed. And we learned that the color of the keys on some old pianos was reversed - white keys were black and black keys were white! Strange feeling when you play! This field trip is one of the unique music experiences that we planned for the Sharon Music Academy students this year!

Sharon Music Academy has a long-standing tradition of bringing the joy of music to those who need it most - seniors and children. It is always a great experience for performers and audiences alike. That’s why SMA students are regularly invited to many local senior living facilities and nursing homes. Laurel Mead in Providence, RI, is one of these facilities. This September, our student Ian Lin and Music Director Tanya Schwartzman, together with the friend of the Sharon Music Academy, Constantine Finehouse - a fantastic pianist, brought the joy of music to the residents of Laurel Mead.

“ Music never stops” is a platitude. But the reason this platitude exists is that music always brings joy into your life. Especially if you also win a competition. That’s how our student Sophia Popescu feels after winning the prestigious 37th International Young Artist Piano Competition in Washington, DC. She won two 1st Prizes: First Overall in her age group and Best performance of the Chinese Piece.
“You are so musical and talented! I am very impressed with your playing! Keep up the excellent work! Congratulations to you and your teacher for such a fine job!”
“Incredible work to learn this challenging piece and perform at such a high level!”
These are just some comments from the judges.

What a Special Day for the Students of the Sharon Music Academy!
https://youtu.be/6kUVbAwFHnA

Playing with an orchestra is a prodigious milestone for any musician, especially for our young musicians! It is proof of their mastery of the instrument. It is an opportunity to learn how to work with other musicians to create music. On June 12th, 2022, eleven of our students had the thrilling experience of playing with a professional orchestra. The young musicians performed with, learned from and socialized with the professional musicians. Students wowed the audience with their piano and violin solos, and some, even with their composition skills - one student composed his own cadenza! Music is a performing art with as many facets of performing experience as any diamond. But no other aspect of the music performance experience is shining brighter than playing with an orchestra!

There is no greater reward for a teacher than the gratitude of a pupil. It validates the teacher’s life and serves as a reminder that the teacher always makes a difference in a pupil’s life. And we had this wonderful moment a couple of days ago when our former student, Christopher Chen, came to visit us with candy and flowers. He graduated nine years ago, and during his almost ten years at SMA, he became an amazing pianist, winning many prestigious piano competitions. Like most of our students, Christopher chose a career outside of music. He went to Harvard to become a Data Scientist and worked for many hottest modern companies, including Uber. And music has always been with him on his journey. His only regret is that he did not take every opportunity to play that life offered him. Good luck, Christopher, and please, come more often!

Sharon Music Academy wants to thank Patrick Elisha and M. Steinert & Sons for a fantastic show! We’ve learned what creates piano sounds and sampled the different tones from different types of piano, understood the secrets of the piano wood and mechanics of the proper key touch, saw the magic of Spirio, and enjoyed Patrick’s piano playing. It definitely has made playing the piano more fun and, hopefully, made all of us better pianists. Please call us to learn more about our music programs.
