Thank you for your interest in the FBCA Academy of Music and Arts. Our aim is to immerse each student in the amazing world of music and the arts—a world that God Himself has created. In fact, we believe that we are most like God when we are creating—as we are made in the image of God, we live into our essence as His handiwork (Eph. 2:10) as we too use our creativity for all things good and beautiful. The joy of music and the arts is ultimately in giving it away. Every ounce of talent and ability are blessings we seek to give to others, by way of ultimately giving it back to God. Therefore we find a beautiful process at work: God creates and blesses so that we can, in turn, create and bless God and His creation.
Frederick Delius, nineteenth—century English composer said, “Music is an outburst of the soul.” To us, this means that music (and other art forms) speak to the very center of who a person is. As a Christian program, then, we desire to provide a training ground for all things relating to the soul. This is, in fact, a biblical commandment (Eph. 5:19). The Academy believes that music and the arts provide this essential soul—training for its students and instructors and also equip these artists to minister to those who will bear witness to their learning—to the glory of God.
It is our hope that you will with us explore the good and beautiful world our God has created: in sounds of instruments, in words of poetry, in inspiration of artwork, and in emotion of movement and dance. I know you will find that in a most mysterious and beautiful way our engagement in music and the arts keeps us in life—changing dialogue with our Creator. Equip your soul with language by which to speak; and by it, may we experience together life more abundant.
