My decision to study at C3 College was one that brought me great clarity. Before stepping into College, I was confused about whether I should pursue a career in the music industry, or if I should devote my gifts solely to a church ministry context. At the time, doing both didn’t seem like a feasible option. I was fearful that I would make the wrong decision, and in doing so, somehow miss out on God’s plan for my life.
I moved from a place of confusion to clarity when I studied the music industry course at College. What I loved about the course was that it crafted me into a musician able to work successfully in the church and the music industry. I was amazed that the content was designed to equip me for both contexts, and that the trainers I studied under were also practitioners in both contexts.
It crafted me into a musician able to work successfully in the church and the music industry.
In my time studying this course, I gained the skills and knowledge needed to operate as a live performance musician, and a session musician working in recording studios. I was taught the ins and outs of running a music business and how to deliver work at an industry standard.
I also found that the ministry focused subjects weren’t just training me to minister in a church, but would equip me for any work context.
Since completing my study at C3 College I have had opportunities to work in the music industry - recording on albums, and playing in bands. I'm also at my local church every week applying what I've learnt at college.
