First Music Academy – Music Classes & More!
This Fall, Our New First Music Academy Opens for Ministry!

First Baptist’s Music Ministry, led by Minister of Music Becky Collins, 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.

The First Music Academy will be growing in the coming months, but beginning this Fall, the academy will offer:

Private Piano Lessons for School-Age Children

Registration Begins August 24th; Private Lessons begin September 10th

For all children who are able to read (or are learning and can recognize), private piano lessons will be offered by Mrs. Becky Collins on Thursday afternoons after virtual learning time. The cost for lessons is $15/half hour and there is a one-time registration fee of $25 to cover the cost of the needed piano book and to secure a spot in the lessons. Lessons are paid for monthly, and parents will contract for three months (12 weeks) of lessons. ELC students have first placement for lessons, and should there be interest from family members or friends, they will be scheduled separately.

In the future, First Music hopes to expand and offer other private music instruction, choral and group music lessons, and more! Come GROW with us at First Baptist’s First Music Academy!
