Who are we?

Mission Statement

Overture Music Academy exists to serve the Middle Tennessee community by providing excellence in music instruction in a Christian environment.  This is realized through choral and instrumental ensembles, as well as supplemental classes in topics of music theory or music history.  In addition to offering music instruction, our intent is to develop a supportive community for our musicians and their families. We are recognized as a charitable organization in the state of Tennessee and as a nonprofit organization under 501(c)3 of the federal tax code.

 “For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servant for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”   

2 Corinthians 4:5-6

What are we passionate about?

We want our students to understand that music is much more than notes on a page; that it is a vehicle for expressing the breadth of human emotion, the language of the soul, and the beauty of God as part of His created order. We want to facilitate collaborative opportunities through which students and the community can encounter the beauty of God’s created order, both its expansiveness and its deeply personal facets, through the musical arts.  We want to follow in the footsteps of those who have gone before us to teach that music shall be  “soli Deo gloria” — for the glory of God alone.

What’s in our name? 

The word “overture” was chosen to describe the intent behind everything we do.  By both connotation and definition, it embodies “an introduction to something more substantial.”  We aim to share our passion for excellence in musicianship with each student; we aim to see the next generation of musicians develop from the beginning a deeper understanding of music while simultaneously learning that all of life should be aimed at glorifying God, their Creator, including their gifts and talents; we aim to foster in our student community a love for music that will last their whole lives. 

What do we believe?

Our statement of faith includes truths upon which all orthodox Christians agree. It concerns the authority of Scripture, Deity of Christ, the Person and Work of Jesus Christ (the Gospel) as revealed in Scripture. It is the faith once delivered to the saints (Jude 1:2, Ephesians 4:5) which distinguishes believers from non-believers.  It offers clarification on distinctives that affect the life of students and families learning together in Christian community and mutual support of one another.

OMA seeks to build a community for involved students and also requires parental involvement (in other words parents get to know one another and have relationship with the students).
