Exciting Announcements for 2016!
Just wanted to write a quick post about some of the exciting things planned for 2016 on Hymnprovisation.com!
First, and I can hardly wait…
I want to let you know about an upcoming workshop on Sacred Worship Music! This isn’t about 18th century stuff or about modern CCM, but about Worship Music, both older and newer, that is both effective, dynamic, awesome, and set apart for the glory of GOD ALONE!
If you play the piano, lead music, sing in church, or do all of the above, this workshop is for you! It will be in the greater Spokane, WA area, and we are tentatively planning it for early Summer. I will let you know just as soon as I have the dates, times, and exact location.
As mentioned, we are hoping to include training on three aspects of church music:
- Leadership in dynamic directing/conducting.
- Leadership in singing/vocal training, with group and one on one vocal training by an excellent vocalist and teacher.
- Leadership in effective and dynamic improvisational accompaniment on the piano, with a nationally known, pianist, teacher,and prolific composer and arranger, whose name will be announced shortly. I promise, you won’t want to miss this class if you are a church pianist!
I can’t say too much more yet, but check back soon as it promises to be an exciting, fun, valuable, informative, and awesome workshop! Our goal is for you to return to your home church, with new tools in your toolbox that you can put to work right away. If this sounds interesting at all to you, please let us know in the comments below, and don’t forget to pass on the news to anyone else who might be interested.
Second, and almost as exciting as the first announcement:
Keep checking hymnprovisation.com, as we hope to add considerable content, more free music, and a blog post at least once a week. It’s been a little slow getting started, but we are working on bringing you the valuable techniques, and resources for those who want to sharpen their skills and strive for excellence in music. So keep checking back!
Last but not least…okay, maybe least!
Don’t be too shocked if the look of things here change in the near future. We wanted to get this up and running, and figured its better to do it now and make it pretty later. So it isn’t the prettiest just yet, but we hope spruce things up just a bit.
So keep us in your bookmarks, and if you would, let us know what you think in the comments below. Suggestions are welcome!
