Singing Success Overview

Worship Leading

As someone who spent too long in life saying "I can't sing", I get pretty passionate when encouraging others to do it. I honestly wish I had Singing Success when I first started so I'm spreading the word about it now. Here is a brief overview of the program. While I haven't had an opportunity to try everything yet, I'm happy to at least recommend the 360 program. It's a little silly sometimes but the content and teaching is second to none.

It’s interesting that while groups of musicians that play together are called "bands," worship bands are referred to as “teams.”  Maybe it’s because logistically our lineups are always changing or because the team actually encompasses more than one band.  I like the idea that the worship team actually functions like one.  Here are 5 ways to turn your worship band into a team.

Real Lovin'?

Worship Leading
Let's Talk About It

I have a confession to make. I don’t love every song on our website. Shocking, I know. I do however tell the truth at the end of every lesson when I say “Enjoy it. It’s a great song”. I can say this because I have taken the time with each one to learn the parts, think through the lyrics and appreciate why it connects with the Church.
