About South End Fine Arts Academy

The South End Fine Arts Academy at Pritchard at South End was established in September 2014 to train students to use their talents and to provide a positive and wholesome environment in which they may learn. We also believe our ministry is to reach beyond the walls of this church and into our community.

We want to provide a place of quality music and arts instruction where anyone who is interested and has a desire to learn may come to begin or advance in their growth.



The piano is one of the most familiar instruments in the world. At the Academy, we offer private piano lessons, taught by well-trained, energetic and enthusiastic teachers. Students will be given the opportunity to achieve his or her highest potential by receiving one-on-one instruction based on learning style and musical level.

Private Lessons in other instruments may be offered on demand.  Please inquire.


Dance at the South End Fine Arts Academy seeks to help students gain skills in all areas of dance including technique, flexibility and fun. Students of all experience levels are welcome, but no experience is necessary! Our mission is to provide quality dance training to all students in a positive environment.
