The Snyder Music Academy was established to provide quality music instruction in a Christian setting to the Fayetteville community. The program offers private and group instruction for a wide variety of ages from young children to mature adults.

Our program is under the direction of Mrs. Joy Cogswell and is expanding each semester. In addition to our group classes and private lessons, the Music Academy offers a variety of Kindermusik classes for children ages birth through 5 years. Also available is the ABC Music & Me curriculum by Kindermusik for ages 2-5 offered on site at the following childcare centers: Snyder Memorial Baptist Church, First Adventures (Cape Fear Valley Health Care Systems), FTCC Childcare, Highland Learning Center, and Stedman Baptist Church.  Please note, children must be currently enrolled in the child care centers listed to register for the ABC Music & Me classes and playdates offered through the centers.
