SKILLS TRAINING WORKSHOPS

Skills training workshops are topical classes that cover an in-depth study of a specialised skill relating to worship music. This includes instrumental skills (e.g. electric guitar primer, classical ‘conversion’ primer for keyboard, hymn & service playing for organ or piano, guitar / ukulele, etc.) and music technology skills (e.g. music software for multi-track implementation, gear automation, etc.).

Depending on the skill concerned, workshops are either offered via weekly individual / group classes at MSM, or on a partnership basis with individual church’s ministries.
