Song by song, Maine Academy of Modern Music (MAMM) aspires to provide Maine youth with the discipline, freedom, and guidance to appreciate the thrill of making contemporary music, instilling in them the power of self-expression. MAMM is dedicated to building leadership through the musical arts.



MAMM will become the foremost destination for contemporary music education throughout the state by delivering the highest caliber programming and opportunities for youth and adults to reach new heights in musicianship.



At MAMM, we believe in the transformational power of music to enrich quality of life. Our core values are rooted in the important role music plays in cultivating resilience, harmony and leadership.

  • RESILIENCE: In the belief that learning to fail makes us stronger and each new note, chord, beat, or measure provides an opportunity to get it right or improve.
  • HARMONY: We teach our students that together, we can achieve great things. Music is an important tool that promotes communication, team-work and cooperation.
  • LEADERSHIP: MAMM provides a healthy, positive and fun outlet for creative expression and an environment to practice important life skills.
