Music for the Soul

    Client: A private post-secondary Christian education and training school in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA

    There is a school in Fort Lauderdale (Florida, USA) for people looking for careers as Christian musicians and worship leaders. At Ocean’s Edge School of Worship music is at the heart of the program, where students take classes in music and discipleship.

    Ocean’s Edge started using the Cloud edition of Auralia 4 and Musition 4 five months ago, and the staff and the students have noticed the difference already. Jessica Busboom, Assistant Director, confirms that students enjoy using the software and that she has noticed an improvement in students’ test results:

    “The programs have been a great asset to our theory curriculum.”

    Ocean’s Edge School of Worship, part of the Calvary Chapel, provides training and education for Christian artists and worship leaders. This small school – it currently has 40 students, ranging from 18 to 25 years of age – was established five years ago to service a niche in the Christian music industry. The staff are devoted to creating an environment that combines personal mentoring and discipleship with cutting edge music, technology and leadership to equip students for a lifetime of ministry:

    “We are devoted to promoting excellence both in students’ musicianship and in their personal lives.” Jessica Busboom

    Ocean’s Edge offers an intensive, 10-month program; a typical course covers music theory, ear training, arranging, applied harmony, vocal harmony, ensembles, artist development, private instrument lessons, as well as ministry classes. Class time can be busy and sometimes the opportunities to practise in class are limited. Students have Auralia 4 and Musition 4 on their laptops, allowing them to practise outside formal classes.

    “This is especially true in ear training since class time drilling is so limited.” Jessica Busboom
