Love Music? Let’s Talk!

Do you love music? Ready to grow in your music skills?

Let us help you achieve your music goals! We offer guitar, voice, and piano lessons for the young and young at heart. We have been so blessed through music and want to help others on their music journey. Interested in one-on-one sessions online? We can do that too!

From classical to contemporary music, we got you covered.

We have found that the fundamentals of music are crucial and best learned when you have a music teacher or music coach by your side. Steven and I met in college, and both decided to obtain degrees in music. We have traveled many places near and far to sing, but have decided to make San Antonio, Texas our home.

So, let’s talk!

Share with us what your goals in music are and let us help you achieve them! We can also help you with others aspects of music, such as music technology. Steven has helped many ministries and organizations with their music technology needs. Interested in lessons or just need music for your event? Book us today, as our calendar fills up quickly! You can email us directly at faithrendered@gmail.com or message us on Facebook!

Stop! Catholic Musicians read this!

Many Catholic musicians have either not heard of Musicam Sacram or have not taken the time to read the document. It is such a resource for Catholic musicians, and yet many have not utilized these instructions written by the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council. Before you schedule a rehearsal, take a few moments to read through this document! A music ministry will not grow if it does not have a solid foundation.

Musicam Sacram, Instruction on Music in the Liturgy, March 5, 1967

The titles of this document include:

I. Some General Norms
II. The Singing of the Divine Office
III. Sacred Music In The Celebration Of The Sacraments And Sacramentals, In Special Functions Of The Liturgical Year, In Celebrations Of The Word Of God, And In Popular Devotions
IV. The Language To Be Used In Sung Liturgical Celebrations, And On Preserving The Heritage Of Sacred Music
V. Preparing Melodies For Vernacular Texts
VI. Sacred Instrumental Music
VII. The Commissions Set Up For The Promotion Of Sacred Music
