“We have been using both the guitar and keyboard DVDs for our worship team this year and have really enjoyed being stretched and challenged in our technique. They have been really helpful. People in the fellowship often comment on how much the team has improved.” Rashell Beya, Devon
Note – the intro video shown above covers both Beginner & Intermediate courses.
Discover the techniques, tips and ideas in contemporary worship keyboard playing by learning pro keyboard parts to 18 well known worship songs.
This new 4-DVD (or downloadable) set contains a year of lessons teaching you the chord shapes, voicings, rhythms, fills, passing notes and textural sounds that pro players use to create keyboard parts in worship.
Most importantly you’ll learn how to form simple effective parts that fit in with the rest of the band
In each lesson you will listen to the parts, see the chords on screen and break the parts down section by section so you never miss a note.
Every song has at least two keyboard parts so you’re never stuck for fresh ideas and at the end of every lesson there’s a full song play through that you can return to time and again for daily practice
If you like working with physical chord charts you can also use our super chord charts for each of the 18 songs.

“Musicademy is certainly making a name for themselves as a preeminent worship musician instructional group…..With the beginner’s set, you could jump in without ever having touched the keys. The teacher walks you through chord-based playing instead of musical score. This makes it ideal for someone looking to get in quickly with all the tools they need for most church worship styles. The intermediate course is set up for the player who has some history with the piano and wants to build on that knowledge to give their playing a style that best serves worship. Also, someone who simply wants to take their playing to the next level will find the right tools here. With multiple camera angles and obvious experience in teaching music, the Worship Keyboards Course is another great release from Musicademy.” Worship Leader Magazine
