Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with tambourine and dancing, praise him with the strings and flute,
praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals!
- Psalm 150:3-5
The Highlands Christian Academy (HCA) band program consists of five different performing ensembles involving nearly one hundred students from the elementary, junior high, and high schools. The band program has an active schedule of various performances throughout the school year. These performances are held at many different venues including churches, schools, Disney World, competitions, and sporting events.
Students in the band program can expect to learn music-reading skills and instrumental technique. Students and teachers discuss how God has given each person talents and abilities in many different areas, not just music. Students learn how each one is responsible for developing the skills that God has blessed them with in order to pursue excellence in everything they do.
