About Concentration

In modern worship, it’s hard to imagine a worship team that doesn’t utilize technology for their worship sets. That is why we created a concentration that takes students through a process of gaining mastery of Ableton where they learn to create unique sounds, manage stems, and help direct the music during a LIVE context. This happens in our brand new Ableton Lab, which contains computers, midi controllers, and relevant tools to empower our students to grow in this skill.

Testimonial
“FMA introduced me to the idea of combining musical excellence with a heart for enjoyable prayer and worship. I received the tools that laid the groundwork for an entire lifestyle dedicated to cultivating my own prophetic musicianship as a full time musician and worship leader in the House of Prayer. It also opened up an entire world of communion with the Lord in music that I had no idea how to access on my own.”
