School of Worship
A school designed for those
who want to lead worship.
is set up as a 16-week accelerated class session where
the student will learn about the mechanics of music…
by notation as well as by ear, the theology of worship
and how it relates to music, and how the two combine
to become worship music. The student will interact
with others, learn from guest speakers, and receive
materials well worth the cost of the classes.
The Kolaiah School of Worship
transcends the preconceptions of any denomination
and simply teaches straight from the Holy Scriptures
using various translations to help understand God’s
intent regarding the worship of Himself.
Our Statement of Faith can
be found and read here on our website.
However, the School of Worship teaches simply that
Christ Jesus is the Savior, the Healer, the Baptizer
with the Holy Spirit, and the Soon Coming King.
