Music

General Information

We believe music is a gift from the Lord, intended to be used for His glory. Our goal is excellence, teaching students to develop their God-given abilities to the fullest. Each of our instructors holds at least a bachelor’s degree in music and/or significant performance experience. Our music faculty is passionate about sharing music with their students and helping them reach their potential. In addition to great instructors, our students also receive performance opportunities through a fall scholarship benefit performance and spring recitals. 

Private music lessons at the School of Fine Arts are available to students of varying ages and levels, elementary school through adults. Beginning age for private lessons depends on the instructor,  instrument, and student. Private lessons meet once each week, typically for 30 minutes.
