In 2010, husband and wife team,Dr. William Villaverde and Dr. Fabiana Claure, who were each studying for their Doctor of Musical Arts Degrees in Piano Performance at UM, came to the Launch Pad with the dream to open their own music school. However, they had no idea where to start. Through dozens of meetings with our staff, they refined their plan, and even won “best written plan” in the School of Business’s Business Plan competition.
In 2011, they officially founded the Superior Academy of Music. Students enrolled at Superior Academy of Music receive a comprehensive curriculum based on a combination of private lessons and a weekly musicianship course. This program will allow students to be fully prepared for a life in music, whether they wish to be professional musicians or to enjoy music as an extra-curricular activity.
