• From the Director

     Welcome to the Academy of the Arts! During the spring of 2014 Preparatory Music Department and Samford After Sundown staff made the transition to our new home on South Lakeshore Drive across from the main campus.

    Our incredibly talented instructors share their love of art and music throughout the Academy of the Arts. Course offerings will bring enjoyment and advancement for students of all ages who are beginning or continuing their studies. —Executive Director, Connie Macon 

     


    What an opportunity we have for experiencing the arts at Samford University. Our hope is that you will join us for an evening photography class, a morning Kindermusik class, an afternoon violin lesson, or even one of our children’s art classes. As Director of the Preparatory Music for over 25 years, I have seen the positive impact a teacher can make in the lives of music students. Students in our summer music camps schedule their summers around these so they can renew friendships and continue their pursuit of music skills. Our music students have the opportunity to perform on campus in the state of the art Jane Hollock Brock Recital Hall.

    Now as a part of the Academy, we join our art colleagues in providing opportunities in a wide variety of courses, workshops, and camps. We would love for you to join our arts family at Samford University!
