Officials said, "Music enriches our lives. Learning to play music instills self-discipline, builds self-esteem, increases self-confidence and encourages leadership. One of the exciting ministries of The Salvation Army in Chattanooga is the School of Music and Arts. SOMA is changing young lives at the Citadel Corps Community Center on North Moore Road."
The School of Music & Arts Program starts Aug. 14 and goes through Dec. 11. SOMA is every Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. at the Citadel Corps. Registration is $50 per semester or $80 for the whole year.
