Are you looking for a fun, unique way to challenge your child or yourself while learning and building important life skills? Learning a musical instrument is one of the best ways to give you or your child a sense of accomplishment while gaining confidence and learning self-motivation. Playing music is fun, sparks creativity, uses EVERY part of the brain and is a wonderful, healthy outlet for self-expression! Recent studies show that children who are involved in music score higher on standardized tests, do better in school, stay out of trouble and are more likely to graduate and go to college. Being in a music program builds necessary life skills such as discipline, teamwork, and problem solving. Music is more than an extra-curricular activity: it is an art!

Beehland Baptist Church's Academy of Music strives to provide our students with a high-quality music education in a safe, positive environment.
