The mission of LWSM is to develop a passion for music and equip students of all ages to be competent and creative musicians.
Living Waters School of Music exists to meet a need for quality modern music education in Southwest Florida. LWSM is unique in that we will teach modern approaches to music as well as traditional music education. Many opportunities in music exist today that traditional music education does not address. We will teach instrument technique and music production for those interested. We can also provide real live ensemble performance opportunities through Living Waters Church. Students can sit in with intermediate and advanced bands to get experience playing their instruments in a group setting. This will enhance their private studies.
