The Salvation Army, Miami Area Music Program was established for the growth of music education in the communities surrounding the four Corps/Community Centers in the Miami Area Command.

Major Tom Overton, former-Miami Area Commander, envisioned a Music Program that reach at-risk youth in these Miami communities, following The Salvation Army tradition.

Since September 5, 2004, music classes, which include theory courses and instrumental practice (brass) have been given to youngsters of Miami Citadel, Edison, Hialeah and Sunset. The program has become an opportunity for success and character building for young participants.

  • Brass instrument instructions (with theory and practice)
    Instruments: Bb Cornet, Bb Baritone, Bb Trombone, Bb Tuba, Eb Tuba etc..
  • Praise & Worship Combo instruments
    Instruments: Drums, Bass guitar, Electric/Acoustic Guitar and vocals.

The Salvation Army Miami Music Program is open to all youngsters in the community between the ages of 7 to 18 upon spot availability. In order to maintain membership in any of The Salvation Army music forces, participants must show good behavior and commit to the program’s disciplinary guidelines.

The Salvation Army Order & Regulations for Bands and Songsters
Every member of The Salvation Army music sections or groups should be acquainted with the governing orders and regulations.

1. Supreme purpose: Salvation Army bands and songster brigades exist to proclaim the Army’s message: Salvation from sin through Jesus Christ; and to accomplish the Army’s purpose: The Salvation of souls.

“Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his might heaven!
Praise him for his mighty works; praise his unequaled greatness!
Praise him with a blast of the ram’s horns; praise with with the lyre and the harp!
Praise him with the tambourine and dancing; praise him with strings and flutes!
Praise him with a clash of cymbals; praise him with loud clanging cymbals.
Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord!
Praise the Lord!” (NLT)

Red Shield Lodge:

The Salvation Army Miami Area Command offers 236 beds distributed among three lodges that provide temporary housing to women and families, single men, veterans, and persons dealing with HIV/AIDS. These temporary programs are designed to empower residents to regain their independence and return to being self-sufficient members of our community. The Social Services Department is shaped as a support network that assists shelter residents with day-to-day care and services. This support system consists of Case Management, 24-hour and 7-days a week staff supervision, janitorial and kitchen staff. Additionally the department offers life skills, short-term crisis counseling and groups. In order to enhance our residents’ opportunities to succeed, we partner with reliable community agencies that make additional services available as needed.

More Info

In many communities there are men whose lives are in shambles. Some suffer from drug addiction. Some suffer from alcoholism. Some are unemployed and lack the skills needed to find a job. Many wander the streets, without homes or help. The Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Centers offer these men a second chance, an opportunity to start again.Each center provides individual and group counseling, training in job skills, and other tools for rebuilding positive lifestyles.Each in-residence program puts the men into clean, comfortable living facilities. Regular meals, medical check-ups and Alcoholics Anonymous programs combine to make each center a place for new beginnings. Each center also offers a very comprehensive spiritual regeneration program in which all clients are expected to participate. Unlike many programs, these centers are self-supporting.Clothing and household items are collected from communities.These items are brought to the center’s workshops where they are repaired and refurbished, then resold in Salvation Army family stores. The centers are open to all men who have an identifiable and treatable handicap regardless of race, color or religious belief.The success rate of this Salvation Army program is high. There are over 100 centers across the United States. Many include similar programs for women. [ visit our website ]
