Music Lessons Offered At School
In May of 2019, we were delighted to announce that BJA and BJU’s Division of Music are partnering with Piano Central Studios to expand our pre-college music lesson opportunities to serve not only BJA’s students but also the broader upstate community. The new community music program will be called PCS Music Artistry at BJU.
Piano, Voice, Band and Orchestral Instrument Lessons
Through PCS Music Artistry at BJU, Piano Central Studios provides music instruction in academy and university facilities for students in grades 1 through 12. In addition to regular lessons, PCS Music Artistry at BJU features motivational studio contests, regular parent communication via email and the PCS assignment notebook, and PCS’s exclusive Skillmasters Awards Program.
Students have opportunities for public performances—including a Christmas group performance at a local mall, small-group performances at local assisted living centers, and two recitals per year. Students also have opportunities for independent skill evaluation, including the annual PCS Music Fest and membership in the PCS National Federation of Music Clubs Junior Club with the option to participate in the NFMC Festival each spring. Progress reports are sent home twice during the school year.
