Overture Music Academy exists to serve the Middle Tennessee community by providing excellence in music instruction in a Christian environment.
In addition to offering music instruction, our intent is to develop a supportive community for our musicians and their families.
We offer opportunities for student leadership in all the bands and choirs, which includes but is not limited to student section leader, student conductor, and music librarian.
Our focus is to see development of good moral character and community citizenship in each of our students.
In our choral program, we provide classes that develop holistic singers trained in proper vocal technique and equip them for a lifetime of singing in ensembles ranging from Renaissance to Modern. We offer a non-audition choir for 6th-12th grade students as well as an audition-only choir for 8th-12th grade students who wish to have an additional musical challenge. Our training choir serves to build younger musicians’ readiness for using their voices in our performing choirs. Students are encouraged to participate in Middle Tennessee Vocal Association honor choirs.
Our band students are trained in traditional concert band literature and instrument specific technique (scales & score reading). Overture’s three bands allow students from Elementary to High School to develop as musicians in an ensemble and to access other community opportunities such as Middle Tennessee Band and Orchestra Association.
Theory students at Overture study deeply the language of music and the inner working of music composition. High schoolers work rigorously on music concepts that align with AP Music Theory coursework, but they go even further and are challenged to think about music in its historical context. Students who complete theory coursework at Overture are prepared for testing out of music theory and aural skills classes at even the most prestigious of 4-year colleges offering BM in music.
