Band & Choir

I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.” – Psalm 69:30

Band Opportunities

We have plenty of opportunities available at Arborbrook Christian Academy for those interested in furthering their musical interests.

At Arborbrook, we believe that music is a glorious gift from God to his creation.  By studying, preparing and practicing we can use this gift not just to create beautiful music performances, but also powerful expressions of praise to our Lord.
