MUSIC & ARTS
"The word Music is derived from the word "muse" meaning to make happy...It's an emotional art form."
-Randall A. Jenkins, CEO of Zamar Consulting, LLC.

Also featured through The Association is The Dilligent Hands Music Program.
This unique music therapy program takes an unconventional approach to fostering communication for those who suffer from a disability and or the impairments as a result. Through clinical therapeutic intervention the specific needs of the individual(s) whether physical, cognitive, social, and/or emotional are acknowledged and addressed using the power of music to bypass the limitations that traditional means of communication may present.
"As ministers in music the first objective is to give glory to God with the talents that were given from Him. The second goal is to meet the needs of the people via music. Theorist Carl Rogers, would call this therapeutic approach 'client-centered therapy'. This therapeutic approach when used correctly and consistently essentially benefits people by focusing solely on the need(s) of that person and not self. People's emotional, and spiritual needs are met every time, causing people to leave feeling rejuvenated, refreshed, and encouraged. Understanding this therapeutic approach is beneficial to musicians worldwide. By gaining this knowledge and understanding, musicians will be more marketable and reputable to various churches, coinciding with the vision of the leader for the church and the community."
