Things to watch for:
1. What percentage of your congregation sing along with each song?
2. What percentage of people over 60,
your greatest contributors, are singing?
3. Rate the energy and
professionalism of your
musicians, not the singers, especially the bass player.
4. Are the singers
engaging and encouraging the congregation or just standing
5. Do you know how to
employ Power Energy Phrasing?
6. Do you understand
Progressive Metronome and how to use it?
7. Is your Worship
Director a singer or a classical musician? If so, you may be headed
in a direction that will lead to the "same old thing"
or a mechanical sound.
8. Is your music going
toward the younger music because you think it has more energy or
to satisfy the young people? If so, STOP, ask us why.
9. Do you know what is the
center of the music, or the main person that drives the
group and must be powerful and professional?
10. Do you
want a better sound, Worship Service and have it paid for as well?
11. There is no substitute
for the knowledge we provide
12. Have you ever
wondered how many people do not return because they did not care
for the music? Most churches loose a great deal of people this
"Our Society is
fixated on what's new and what is next, but hymns remind us that
what's next is not always what is best. Singing the historic
hymns of our faith reminds our congregations that we are not the
first generation who have wrestled and prayed, asked and
believed. We are not the first to write hymns of praise to God.
We walk gladly in the footsteps of our fathers who have written
praises to Christ that have stood the test of time."
problem is, how can we make the old hymns compelling and
enjoyable to everyone in the church without using rock n roll
techniques - this is one of the main things we teach."
