Hi Class -

Just a reminder that we practicing on Friday at 7:30 PM and Sunday morning at 9 AM. Service starts at 10 AM on Sunday. You guys are sounding really good.

I would like you to keep the following in mind:

1. Singers need to come in on time and come out strong, especially on pick ups and when you start new verses and head into chorus.  Singers and musicians need to count the beats and not miss their entries.

2. Take your eyes off the music, and listen to each other. Listen for the beat (established by the drums and bass) and listen to the singers so that you are complementing them, not competing with them.

3. Do not overplay. We don't need a busy keyboard, bass, or drum part on a slow song. On a fast song, lay back on the verse, keep it simple; then play out on the chorus. Try to be musical.

4. Singers....sing from your heart, connect with God and you will connect with your audience. On your solos, sing out, be free, don't be afraid of messing up.

5. Remember that we are  performing an age-old, sacred ritual...worship leading. And so on Sunday, let's be respectful to God and the congregation by dressing well and conducting ourselves with calm and maturity while we are on the platform. Save the small talk and joking around for afterwards. We have a job to do, and that is to put people in a worshipful mood BEFORE and during service.

Thanks everyone. It's been a real pleasure. I hope we can continue with another Worship Band 101 in the future.

Ted
