Heart and Soul Creative Arts Academy

Welcome to Grace Avenue UMC’s Heart and Soul School of Creative Arts

Heart and Soul

We are pleased that you have decided to pursue your arts education with us and are looking forward to the opportunity to help you grow and learn. Our mission is to connect and nurture the creative image of God that lives inside every person. We also believe the arts help us to explore God and His creation.

Do you want to learn to play an instrument or advance in the instrument you have? Now is the time! The Heart & Soul Academy is offering private lesson sessions in voice, piano, guitar, ukulele, saxophone, and cello. Lessons are usually 30 minutes each, the same time every week for the school year.  If there is an instrument you are interested in that is not listed above, please e-mail [email protected] about it, along with any questions.



The Heart & Soul year is based on the Frisco ISD calendar. Lessons begin in September and continue through May. Major holidays will be observed. Please refer to current academic calendar for specific dates.

Elizabeth Reed Wagner Scholarship Fund

Scholarships are available to select students who demonstrate financial need, artistic ability and dedication to instruction. Amount of scholarship will be determined on an individual basis and will require some level of financial commitment from the student. Final determination on how and to whom scholarships are awarded is made by the Academy’s advisory board. The scholarship fund is made possible by generous donations and $1 per paid lesson is credited to the fund.
