Welcome to Javacya Arts
Javacya endeavors to use the arts as a tool to facilitate the development of high self-esteem and self discipline. Through the mastery of their musical talents, students develop an appreciation of the fine arts and a strong application of music theory, so that they can analyze and interpret the music that they perform.
Key to Success
Students will be educated on the benefits of daily practice and taught time management in creating daily routines.
All students participate in recitals and biannual concerts where they are mentored by more experienced artists.
We believe firmly in politeness, responsibility, respect, courtesy and good manners.
The Javacya Experience
Students participate in All-State, Javacya recitals, private recitals, concerts, and competitions on a local, state, and national level. Students are also encouraged to attend national and international music camps and provided outlets for performance year-round. Javacya students are heavily involved with the Sphinx Music Organization.
