The Performing Arts Academy of Bryan College exists to provide a variety of musical experiences for Dayton and surrounding communities.
The Performing Arts Academy currently offers private instruction in piano, organ, voice, flute, violin, cello, ukulele, guitar, songwriting, and more. Private lessons are given in 30-60 minute increments, depending on your preference and the recommendation and availability of the teacher.
Level 1 teachers are student-teachers who are still gaining experience but have already undergone supervised pedagogical training.
Level 2 teachers hold a music degree and already have teaching experience in a variety of environments.
Bryan College professors and teachers with advanced degrees and substantial teaching experience make up our Level 3 instructors.
Music lessons are billed by the semester and can be paid as one-semester payments or four equal installments (August-November and January-April). Semester tuition includes 12 lessons (which do account for breaks). Payments made after the 15th of the month will incur a $25 late fee.

Whether students already have a musical background or are complete beginners, our Youth Choir offers a fun way for grades 3-12 to dive into making music in groups and sharing it with others. Through weekly rehearsals, students will be instructed in basic music skills, healthy singing techniques, and how to work as a team, all through the context of an exciting and beautiful repertoire. Song selections span from traditional sacred works to multicultural choral settings, weaving in Biblical truths as well as cultural and historical backgrounds. Throughout the semester, students will have the opportunity to share their work with the community as well as family and friends through 1-2 performances. (Cost of participation includes weekly instruction and all materials!)
