We Know Change is Hard
Even changing from something okay to something great causes some pain. Please keep this in mind as you browse the site. It looks different and if that takes you by surprise we get it! The lesson workflow is the same. All the materials are still there and require the same amount of clicks or taps. You still have all the control. Take your time and play around. The old Worship Artistry was new to you once too.
Here's something fun to think about. When we launched Worship Artistry, everyone on your street was getting Netflix DVD's in the mail and you could still reach every part of your iPhone with your thumb. Crazy, right? A lot has changed since then, but the important things have remained.
When we first dreamt up Worship Artistry, we wanted every tutorial to feel like as much like a live lesson as possible. We wanted to clear away clutter so you could focus on the task at hand. We chaptered the lessons so you could get to what you needed. We created sheet music and charts that operated independently of the video tutorials so you could move at your own pace. That technology didn't exist before! We invented that!
With the tools and environment in place, we set our sights on great teaching content and, based on the feedback we've gotten from thousands of musicians, I believe we managed to hold to that standard. As we built our library, the house we were working in began to need some updates. The floors were getting scratched and the paint colors were going out of date. We set about doing some touch-up work but we're dreamers, and our touch-up soon turned into a full remodel. It's taken much longer than expected, but the results are stunning. Here are just a few of the key features you'll find in the all-new Worship Artistry.
We designed Worship Artistry to work really well on both desktop and tablets, but phones were so small at the time we didn't prioritize mobile functionality. Obviously, times have changed, so you'll find our new site completely responsive. It acts just like an app in your browser. That being said, we are working on an app that will be released shortly to make the best use of your phone or tablet screen. Keep an eye out for that.
In the beginning we had to make some content feel like a lot of content. 100 songs on an infinite scroll can feel like a pretty small library. Now we have over 500 songs plus additional video, audio and written content and we want to make sure you can find it all. The search bar searches everything and presents results in a beautifully organized manner. You can type in song titles and artists or words like "fingerpicking" or "Easter" and you'll get the results you are looking for. Not sure the name of a song but know a lyric? You can search that too. If we've got it, you'll find it.
We know from a lot of experience that the best way to build skill is to use it in the context of an actual song, so we have spent hundreds of hours curating tutorials that feature different techniques. Want to work on your tom grooves? There's a collection for that. Don't have a big keyboard rig? You'll find songs that just feature piano. It's great to prepare for Sunday, but Worship Artistry offers so much more than that. Commit to working through a collection and watch your ability grow. You'll enjoy playing on Sunday and everyday in between.
We're not done! An app is just around the corner and we'll be inviting you to check out our vocal lessons very soon. We'll also continue to add new features to the site all the time. For now, enjoy the new look. Explore and learn. We'll keep the great content coming.
Last, But Certainly Not Least
We want to thank the hundreds of community members that BETA tested and offered their incredibly helpful and constructive feedback. This is truly a community we are proud to be a part of. Cheers to you all.
