Download This Episode

In this podcast, we look at seven "sins” of the average worship team. Call them barriers, challenges, issues, etc. Whatever you call them, they are holding back your team from being exceptional.

As we discuss each one, we also look at practical tips for overcoming these sins.

Outline:
1. Blob of Sound
2. Stand Zombie Stare
3. Poor Sense of Time
4. More Me - failing to listen to each other
5. Playing the Chart, not the song
6. Set it and forget it - failing to use dynamics
7. Stale Bag of Tricks

7 Deadly Sins Slides
These are the slide handouts from a webinar I taught with much of the same content. You can follow along with these as you listen to the podcast. Or, better yet, have a "workshop" with your team where show these to your team as you play the podcast for them.

Reverse Sound Check Article
This is the blog post where I talk more in-depth about starting with the house mix, then working on the monitor mix. 

Time Management: Essays on Issues of Tempo
This is a collection of blog posts I've written over the years on playing in time and with a click. You might find it interesting because some were written as my team was just learning how to play with a click. And some were written after we were using them all the time.

 

 

 

For Discussion:

  • What are some of the "sins" that you've seen on your team?
  • How have you overcome them?
