A helpful walkthrough of what and how to play during special ministry moments in a service.
A keyboard player can set a tone of reflection and reverence for a speaker. Worship Artistry's keyboard instructor, Ryan King, shows you how to play, or "pad", behind prayer, ministry, or spoken moments of a service.
Ryan digs into what it means to worship from the heart, soul, mind, and strength.
Worship is debated, talked about, discussed. And something that is happening all the time. In fact it’s something that every person on earth does. Everyone worships something! Over the next few weeks, I want to explore what exactly worship is and how it affects both our daily lives and corporate gatherings.
Download your patches and upgrade your keyboard sound.
This helpful tutorial shows you how to install the patches you’ve purchased into your Omnisphere setup. Ryan, our lead keyboard instructor, uses the example of 1000 Tongues by Vertical Worship to walk you through every step of downloading and installing a patch.
For years I’ve heard the debate about whether church musicians should use sheet music, chord charts, and music stands during a service. I have my own thoughts on this topic, but one thing is certain: the ability to memorize and recall music is an indispensable tool for every musician. Whether it’s a ‘four chord and a capo’ worship song or a 30-page classical piano solo, this is a skill every musician should develop. Here's how.
When you’re changing sounds between songs in a live setting, things can get tricky. The Omni TR app makes things easier if you know how to use it. In this video, lead piano instructor Ryan King shows us how to use the Omni TR app for iPad.
Perhaps you're stripping down to an acoustic set but still want to include Whole Heart on the set list. If keys are leading solo, Ryan shows us how to fill out the sound and lead on piano for Kristian Stanfill's Whole Heart.
Steps are the basic building blocks of music. Among keyboard players this simple concept is often overlooked in favor of more complicated fare, so in this post I'm going to take you back to the most basic intervals there are.
