About This Class

So you play music... and maybe with other people.  But is that all a band is?  In this class I will share insights on how to take your band from playing the same song alongside each other to playing with each other as unit, with intentionality and excellence.  I have decades of experience playing in all sorts of bands: from rock bands to acoustic bands to worship teams.  I am excited to help you fast-track through lessons learned in my years of experience.  I break the concepts down so you really think through what you're doing.  Even if you have some years of experience yourself, I bet there is something you can glean from this class... even if good reminders that we forget about!
