No matter what type of church music you are involved in, you probably never have enough time to get done everything you want to get done. No worries. Let me help you. I offer the following services. Some are absolutely FREE and others are offered at very reasonable prices that any church or church musician can afford.
With over 35 years of experience in church music, I provide time tested resources as well as cutting edge technology solutions for today’s church musician.
I can help amateur and professional musicians with their accompanying of congregational music and learning solo material. Playing the piano or organ as a soloist and accompanying congregational singing are not the same thing. If you aren’t taught how to accompany, you’ll never be the best accompanist you should be. Ask me any keyboard question via the contact form and I’ll answer at no charge.
Do you have a pianist or organist that needs some lessons geared specifically toward church music? If so, I offer lessons over the internet or in person in Micanopy, Florida. Why not consider offering your keyboardist a scholarship to take lessons with me?
Arrangements & Compositions
Do you need music for your instrumental group, orchestra or soloist? Do you need an anthem for your choir or music for your handbell or handchime group? What about your praise band or just the right music for solo organ or piano? I can arrange any piece of music you want arranged or I can compose something just for your group. My rates are much lower than purchasing a piece from a print music publishers. There are over 75 orchestra arrangements & compositions from me being used by churches throughout the US.
Typesetting & Copyist services
So you’ve already written something, but, let’s face it, making a good hand written copy that your group can read is a very time consuming process. Ah, but you have notation software, that makes it easy, right? It takes lots of time to learn the software, time better spent elsewhere. Just because you used notation software to produce the music doesn’t necessarily mean it is done correctly. You have to spend even more time learning proper notation and typesetting. Even then, what you give your musicians still may not be acceptable. I can take any sheet music you have and typeset it into a publish quality work. Save the time, let me do it for you.
Consulting services & Workshops
Need some advice on anything related to church music, organs, pianos, MIDI, contemporary or classical styles of music, notation software or iPads? We can help you make the most of your music program. I am also available for music workshops.
You have a great choir anthem or vocal solo, but it just doesn’t sound so great with just organ or piano accompaniment. Perhaps the musicians you have can’t play it up to the quality you need. I can take any piece of music you provide us and turn into a high quality accompaniment recording.
MIDI or DAW files
Do you have a MIDI capable organ or keyboard but no time or no way to produce MIDI files for use with it? I can produce a high quality MIDI file tailored for your equipment and needs. Any title you provide me can be made into a MIDI file. This will sound far better than playing a CD or MP3 recording as it will be customized for your unique situation. I can also provide stems you can insert into your DAW and mix as you please. We’ll provide one church service’s worth of MIDI files for free!
Worship Service Bulletins
Some call them bulletins, some programs and others guides, but whatever you call it, it is the piece of paper your congregation sees at each church service. I can produce the master copy which you then print out.
