Mission

To train the next generation of musicians for the church, the community, and the world, for the glory of God.

Our Story

Since 2002 Saint Andrew’s Conservatory of Music has been a unique training program for musicians of all ages. Originally conceived as a music camp, SACM has expanded to include lessons on brass, woodwind, keyboard instruments plus summer camps, faculty showcase recitals, and scholarship awards.

In addition to outstanding private instruction SACM offers a Church Music Certificate program for returning adults, and cooperates with Reformation Bible College in the BA in Sacred Music curriculum.

Our outstanding instructors are confessing Christians who take their mission as teacher/performers seriously. They are active throughout the Central Florida area as soloists, church musicians, orchestral players, composers, arrangers, and college teachers.

Because of its location near SR46 in Sanford, the campus is minutes from downtown Orlando, and only 5 minutes from I-4. Its facilities include 2 pipe organs, 4 grand pianos, studio and practice spaces, 3 performing halls, a chamber ensemble, multiple choirs, and many other components to enhance musical development from a very young age through college and postgraduate study. Truly, Saint Andrew’s Conservatory of Music is where your musical goals can be realized.

Message from the Dean

Hello, and welcome to Saint Andrew’s Conservatory of Music. As Dean of the Conservatory, I am anxious that you know all about who we are, what we do, and why we do it. I stand ready, along with our outstanding music instructors, to mentor a new generation of musicians with a biblical world and life view.

This is not be any means the only music training center in Central Florida, but it may be the most unusual. Parents will find our teaching atmosphere warm and inviting. Vocationally-bound students will discover our instructors will prepare you for the world of professional music where you have to be competitive. Every session is a lesson in self-discovery, and an opportunity for personal and spiritual growth.

Check out the FAQ list, and if you still have questions feel free to email me. May God richly bless you as you pursue music training here!

Sincerely,

Terry Yount
