The worship ministry at First Naples strives to create an environment that is comfortable for you to worship in, no matter the season or walk of life. Our Staff & Worship Teams work together to lead our church family in unique weekend services that are dynamic, engaging, Christ-honoring, Gospel-driven and spiritually up-lifting.



Whether you worship in one of our band-led services or our Choir + Orchestra service, you’ll be led by people just like you that love the Lord and take delight in offering their gifts & abilities to the Lord as a sacrifice of praise!

Getting Involved

Worship ministry is always open to involve more volunteers gifted in music to assist in worshipping the Lord in spirit and truth. From singing and playing instruments to acting and special productions, you will find great opportunities to use your gifts and talents to serve the Lord. Our worship teams at First Naples are comprised of church members with talents in music that desire to praise Him with integrity and humility. If you have any interest in serving click the button below to send us an email and we’ll be back in touch with more details.

Registration Process

Students must register online.

You may register at any point during the semester, assuming there are still openings available.

Tuition for private lessons will be invoiced to you on a monthly basis; however, you may pay in full at any time.

Once registration is complete, the School Office will match you with an instructor and lesson time. Students are assigned to instructors and classes based on paid registration date, new or returning students, instrument level, time preference, instructor availability, etc.

You will receive a Welcome letter via email with your assigned instructor, lesson time and payment information.

Instruments + Curriculum

The School does not provide instruments or curriculum. Each student will need to provide his/her own instrument and other accessories as required by the instructor. A piano or keyboard will be in each studio room. The instructor will inform parents and students of any needed curriculum, including music, method books and theory books, and those will need to be purchased by the students.

Attendance Policy

Please be prompt so that instructors can begin and end each lesson on time. Instructors are not required to extend the lesson if a student arrives late. If an instructor is late, the lesson time will be extended and other students informed of a later start time to accommodate.

Lessons will not be made up if they are missed or denied due to late or outstanding payment. Students are responsible for paying for all lessons in the semester, regardless of attendance.

Make-up lessons will be granted for excused absences. Excused absences are lessons cancelled with a 24 hour notice to the instructor and/or school office. Instructors are not required to make up unexcused absences. However, grace may be granted at the instructor’s discretion. Please note that lessons will not carry over into the next semester. If a student’s excused absence is not made up during the make-up week provided, then the lesson is forfeited.

A lesson that falls on a holiday or during a church campus closure will be scheduled during the make-up week at the end of the semester.

If a student’s schedule changes during the semester and their lesson time no longer works, permanent rescheduling is subject to the instructor’s availability and may not be able to be accommodated.

If a student no longer wants to continue lessons, they are required to notify the School Office. Refunds will be given on a prorated basis.

If an instructor needs to be absent or cancel a lesson due to illness, extreme emergency or death in the family, that lesson will be made up within the same semester or refunded at the School Office’s discretion.
