MUSIC EDUCATION FOR SINGERS LEVEL 1

September 5, 2014

Most churches have back-up vocals for their song services. However, the singers may not minister nor enjoy as much as they could because they do not sing in parts. With the exception of one or two talented ones,most struggle with pitch and timing. This is the case across the board. After all we are not trained singers. A majority do not read music or are illiterate in music. How nice it would be to sing with musical harmony, musical statements and spontaneous improvisation to enhance the spiritual message.
