Dr. Maurice Sklar's lifelong musical journey began at age four. Born in New Orleans, his exceptional musical ability took him to the Curtis Institute of Music (where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree) and the renowned Juilliard School of Music. He answered the call of God to enter the ministry in May 1991. Since then he has performed and ministered throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, the former Soviet Union, Asia and Israel.
In June 1997, Maurice was awarded an Doctorate of Ministry degree from Word of Truth Seminary in Huntsville, Alabama, for his pioneering work in returning classical music to the church and for his revival ministry in the Holy Spirit. In addition, he has served as Artist-in-Residence and instructor of violin and viola at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma, since 1990.
Dr. Sklar has appeared on Trinity Broadcasting Network's "Praise the Lord," “It’s Supernatural” with Sid Roth, “TCT”, Daystar, “CBN Asia” with Hugo Chan, "This Is Your Day with Benny Hinn," and "Richard Roberts Live!" programs. He is a frequent guest on "The 700 Club" with Pat Robertson, and recorded for the soundtrack of Kenneth Copeland's movie "Covenant Rider."
