FCA BAND PROGRAMS

The Family Christian Academy Band exists to teach children the powerful gift of expression through organized sound, what we call music. We believe music is a God given gift to humankind to express their feelings, ideas and thoughts in a creative manner. We also believe that music is created to glorify God and to rejoice in the beauty and excellence of all of His creation.

The FCA band has three distinct programs to build up our students according to their maturity and capabilities:
  1. Grades 4 & 5 participate in numerous hands on activities including playing instruments and performing bi-annually.

  2. Grades 6, 7 & 8 comprize our Middle School Band. They are allowed to play an instrument in the woodwind, brass or percussion family that contributes to the sound of a concert band.

  3. Grades 9-12 comprize the High School Band. They are allowed to play an instrument in the woodwind, brass or percussion family that contributes to the sound of a concert band with added emphasis on varied styles including jazz and modern selections.




Students wanting to be involved with the FCA band programs can choose Band as an elective during the registration process. Students in the Middle School and High School bands should consider renting the instrument of their choice from Zeagler’s Music (Web: http://www.zeaglermusic.com or 225-923-0769) or Allison's Music (225-677-9299.)
