BJA’s music program provides students the opportunity to develop their musical talents for the glory of God. Throughout the year, students involved in our vocal and instrumental ensembles perform concerts of classical, semi-classical and sacred music.
Academy music groups regularly perform at locations such as the Biltmore House and the Greenville Art Museum as well as in the Greenville Poinsettia Christmas Parade and in area churches. Check our news feed for other recent opportunities and events that our students have participated in.
Music is a wonderful tool that can be used for brain development. Our music program exposes children to a variety of styles, cultures and techniques. Children have the opportunity to play instruments, learn about composers, learn fun and exciting songs and develop a love for music.
