First Baptist’s Music Ministry, led by Associate Pastor for Music & Worship Rev. David Cameron, wants children and youth to learn music as an art, a discipline, and a way of loving God and neighbor.
Mission Statement: First Music Academy of First Baptist Church Martinsville, Virginia exists to provide music instruction and mentorship in the context and safety of a Christian Community. Its goal is to inspire and equip students to become excellent musicians, outstanding thinkers, and articulate advocates for music for the sake of others, and in service to God.
Beginning this Fall, the First Music Academy will kickoff its new season with music instruction for our FBC Early Learning Center children on Thursdays. Our Pre-K3 class will have music class on Thursdays at 10:30am and our Pre-K4 class will have music class on Thursdays at 11:00am.
In addition to music classes for our Early Learning Center, the FMA is searching for private instructors to begin offering private music lessons. Lessons are for children age 5 (readers) and up, and adults are welcome as well. Those children and adults who study with the First Music Academy will have opportunities to share their gifts in worship services and recitals in our Sanctuary.
