St. John's Music Academy

Handbook

St. John’s Music Academy (SJMA) seeks to provide music education through studio lessons using appropriate curriculum and methodology within a Christian atmosphere and in accordance with the rich heritage of classical, Lutheran sacred music that serves the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We believe that “next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world” (Martin Luther). Thus, we strive to preserve this treasure of our Church within our private music lessons, church services, communities, and homes. By doing so, we hope to enrich the lives of those who learn this noble art, preserve both God’s Word and our rich heritage of Lutheran hymnody that carries it, serve those within the Church and community with music, and raise up the next generation of church musicians who will continue to serve the Church in various capacities.
