Our 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. Serving the wider Central Florida community, we offer private lessons, a Summer Music Academy, Concerts including Faculty Showcases, and cooperative programs with Saint Andrew’s Chapel including guest artist appearances, master classes, and more.

Our Facilities

Students have access to two pipe organs, four grand pianos, harpsichord, studio and practice spaces, and one of Central Florida’s premier concert venues. This is truly a place where tomorrow’s musicians receive extraordinary opportunities.


If music is, as Martin Luther says, a gift from God–then we are obliged to develop that gift. Saint Andrew’s Conservatory of Music offers year-round private instruction for piano, organ, harpsichord, violin, cello, harp, trumpet, flute, and voice. This is a performing arts community that balances weekly lessons with seasonal concerts and recitals. Some faculty require a student audition before registering, but there is no age restriction.



Saint Andrew’s is a community of faith, with one difference–we love the arts. Our faculty are Christians, active in local churches. We feature our faculty in showcase concerts. They are performing musicians who have advanced training, with 90% holding Master of Music degrees from music schools around the world. Clearly this is one of “Florida’s best kept secrets” – a distinguished faculty and wonderful performance opportunities.


Conservatory Scholarship Fund

Scholarship support is available to outstanding students. Scholarships are awarded to students whose work has been consistently of high quality in a given semester, renewable based on student discipline. Your tax-deductible gifts to the Conservatory Scholarship Fund may be made online or in-person. Help us to train the next generation of musicians. Your contribution of any amount is your statement of support for the Conservatory’s mission in Central Florida.


Certificate in Church Music Program

In addition to outstanding private instruction, SACM offers a Church Music Certificate program for returning adults who want professional certification but do not desire a four-year degree, or are seasoned professionals who want to refresh skills and add new ones.


Summer Music Academy

Summer Music Academy is a unique opportunity to combine fun with musical exploration.
K-5 students get to experience live performance on a variety of instruments. More advanced students in MS/HS participate in ensembles, private lessons and master classes, faculty micro-recitals, exploration of composers and historical style and more. To the delight of parents and friends, each Academy student performs in a final concert at the end of the week.

Summer Music Academy Students have opportunities to try new instruments, to participate in music ensembles, and to refine their musical skills.

Students are mentored and taught by caring instructors who are exceptional teachers and performers on various instruments.

Young students learn about music in a fun environment where God is honored and glorified.

Message From the Dean

Hello, and welcome to Saint Andrew’s Conservatory of Music.

As Dean of the Conservatory, I am eager 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 by 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 soon discover our instructors will prepare them for the world of professional music where they have to be competitive. Every session is a lesson in self-discovery, and an opportunity for personal and spiritual growth.

If you have questions feel free to email me. May God richly bless you as you pursue your music training here!
