Thursdays | 11:00am-12:00pm

The Worship Performance & Audio Production Lab offers our worship students exposure to a wide variety of music skills and tools to further develop their skills and talents, giving them a broader base of understanding of music performance.
Students who are doing their practicum in worship are required to attend this lab.

Music Lessons

In addition to group vocal lessons, worship students can choose between group piano lessons or group guitar lessons, provided by their tuition. These lessons are designed to work in conjunction with the weekly Worship Performance & Audio Production Lab and will help further enhance the student’s music skills.  Lessons are taught by highly qualified local musicians.
