Band Program


Band Program

Oconee Christian Academy launched its band program in the 2021-22 Academic School Year under the tutelage of Mrs. Taylor Neave Gonzalez .

Mrs. Christina Black joined OCA in 2023 and is continuing to grow our band program. She teaches elementary music and has band students ranging from the 5th - 9th grade. She, her husband, and their three children moved to Seneca from Georgia. We are excited to have Mrs. Black join the OCA Warrior Family.

Program Details

The program was initially launched for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders, but now has grown to 5th - 10th grade. During their time in band, students will be learning how to read music, play an instrument, and perform music with their peers. The program is open to both full-time OCA students as well as homeschool students.
