Training and Development

The members of the Music and Creative Arts team are involved in a number of initiatives for the training and development of musicians.

In addition to formal events run by the Music and Creative Arts team, such as Territorial Youth Band, Territorial Youth Choir and Territorial Music School, we are regularly involved events run in partnership with other Territorial Headquarters units. We also organise training days with local corps or divisional headquarters. Events such as Youth Music Days are a regular feature.

We have hosted a number of day-long seminars as part of our commitment to mentor and encourage composers and lyricists. They are led by members of our own team and supported by guest contributors to provide ideas, tuition and training. These seminars have proved popular, with new writers and composers contributing to our publications. 

Members of the team are also on available to conduct rehearsals with your corps’ young persons or senior sections and to lead retreat weekends.

Please contact your local Regional Specialist to discuss the possibilities that exist for arranging an event in your division or at your corps via Email for more information.


The Salvation Army Music Ministires has produced a series of guides and supporting notes for musicians.
