Thank You!

Just wanted to congratulate you all on the work you are doing with Worship Artistry. Being mainly a bass player, in June last year I took up the challenge to add drums to my repertoire to be able to serve the church band when we were stuck for a drummer. I was going to give myself two years to be ready to play in church, but because of your great tuition (and a slightly desperate music director), in three months I played my first church meeting on the drums. The teaching in the videos is so easy to follow and to practice along with because it's broken down into such manageable chunks. I also found so much value in the 101 section for beginners like me. So many great hints about the craft of playing drums, and how to serve the church in doing it well. I have found the price for subscription to WA immensely worthwhile. I have checked out the videos on the other instruments and I can't wait for the rest of my music team to get subscribed too. Thanks for your service to me and my church!
God bless,

Luke, that's amazing!

I've been learning a drums a bit off the site and Josh and Jared are both super helpful. We'll keep 'em coming!
