Central Academy exists to build musicians who can use their talents and gifts to bless their families and communities with musical skills that will last a lifetime. We believe that music is a gift from God to soothe the spirit and express our hearts to God and one another. We also are convinced that music plays an important part in a well rounded education, and has proven scientific benefits for brain development.
We offer music training in a variety of musical disciplines including voice, piano, guitar, bass guitar, drums, stringed instruments and brass instruments. The academy began in 2016 and meets on the property of Central Baptist Church.
