Notes from the School of Worship Arts FBCUC​​ Musical Notes,music,staff - Small Music Note Clipart (#1339267) - PinClipart

It’s the final sprint before summer and we wish all the FBA students a great finish to the 2020-2021 school year! If your student has been thinking about taking up an instrument or perhaps pushing toward increasing his/her proficiency on the instrument already playing, we would like you to consider taking private lessons through the school of worship arts.  We are located in the Love Bldg. of FBCUC so we are super convenient. Our prices are competitive and we have only 6 weeks left in the current semester. It’s a good time to try us out without a semester long commitment.  Give me a call for more information. We would love to have you join the SOWA family of future worship leaders.
