Do you play an orchestral instrument in a worship setting? Are you frustrated by needing to have the musical score and wish you could play by ear and improvise? Or perhaps you know of others on your worship team in that situation?
We’re really pleased with the DVD we created especially for musicians that play “single melody instruments”. Its suited for all strings, brass, woodwind and is brilliant at taking you from a technically correct but limited playing perspective to a versatile, creative musician in the context of contemporary worship.
We’re so pleased with the DVD that not only do we offer a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE to anyone buying it, but we’ve also just put it on HALF PRICE SALE in our webstore.
Please do us a favour and pass on the information to any flute, violin, cello, sax, trumpet etc players out there. Most of Musicademy’s readers are guitarists, singers, drummers, bassists and keyboard players so we’d be very grateful if you could help us spread the word.
