Thank you for your interest in MDUMC's Music and Arts Center! We are a ministry of Memorial Drive United Methodist Church providing students with learning opportunities to express themselves creatively through music and the visual arts.
We strive to give children, youth and adults the opportunity to discover, develop, use, and enjoy their God-given gifts in a safe, supportive and loving Christian environment. Through the fine arts, we hope to give expression to each student’s musical and artistic ability. We vow to challenge our students to develop life-long skills, such as analytical thinking, clarity in written and spoken expression, collaboration and creativity. These skills can be developed through the arts and are valuable in any career. We plan to help students understand that there is incredible power in the arts to inspire and influence.
“Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.” -Martin Luther
