I will be glad and exult in you;
I will sing praise to your name, O Most High (Psalm 9:2, NIV).
MorningStar University’s School of Worship Arts is an intense one or two-year training program crafted for skilled, aspiring worship leaders and musicians. MSU’s School of Worship Arts is grounded in MorningStar’s rich legacy of pioneering new expressions of corporate worship, and releasing new and powerful sounds to inspire and release artists with the highest standards of excellence, vision and purpose in their music.
What To Expect
The goal of MSU’s School of Worship Arts is to raise up worship leaders, songwriters, and musicians who desire to know the Father, and have an honest conversation with Him and His people. Because He is the Creator who so loves creativity that He makes every snowflake different, Christians should be the most creative people on earth, and that is what we are seeking to have released in those who come to MSU.
In our revamped two year program culminating in an Associate Degree in Christian Ministry, classes include songwriting and music theory to develop practical skills while instruction in the biblical purpose of worship provides students with a vision and understanding of their calling. Students also engage in hands-on leadership opportunities, including leading worship for chapel services, worship services at MorningStar and other churches, and special events. Recording opportunities may also be available. Our goal is to provide solid musical instruction with opportunities for practical experience as worship leaders and musicians.
Led by Leonard Jones, instructors in the School of Worship Arts include some of the most high-impact and successful musicians today, including Suzy Yaraei and David Vallier, with special guest instructors like Don Potter and others. They bring decades of music, worship, and recording experience to you that can save you years in important areas of this field.
